...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.

TOP 10 STEVE HOWE GUITAR SOLOS

Yes guitarist Steve Howe may very well be the most stylistically diverse guitarist in rock music history — at the very least, the most adventurous to sell millions of records. Howe has consistently made a deliberate choice to avoid rock and blues cliches, instead coloring Yes’ elaborate soundscapes with influences drawn from jazz, classical, folk and country music — often within the context of a single piece of music.

Howe also went on to play in the multi-platinum supergroup Asia, and he extended his musical experiments to guitar synthesis in GTR, a short-lived project that paired him with former Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett. But his career with Yes contains so much groundbreaking playing that Guitar Player magazine’s readers voted him Best Overall Guitarist every year from 1976-1981, obliging the publication to retire him from consideration and instead place Howe in its Gallery of the Greats.

Our list of the Top 10 Steve Howe Guitar Solos focuses entirely on his work with Yes, but you should also check out his solo albums, other bands, and pretty much any other piece of music that Howe has ever committed to tape.
