...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.

Rick Wakeman - Lighthouse, Poole

Rick Wakeman - Lighthouse, PooleURSINE is a word that could have been invented to describe Rick Wakeman, but this great bear of a man has the fingers of an angel.
Here was the ex-Yes star and session player to virtually anyone alive in the 1970s chuckling through a few lifetime anecdotes and demonstrating his absolute skill on the piano.
And he absolutely dwarfed his grand piano.
From his first-ever performance at the age of five - the 13-note See A Monkey On A Stick - to Merlin the Magician from his King Arthur opus, Wakeman dazzled with his keyboard artistry.
This legendary Grumpy Old Man and Countdown regular was cheerful throughout with his tales of Brian Blessed admiring the female form, Yes singer Jon Anderson being able to paint only flowers and the pensioners who escaped from a care home to see Status Quo at Hammersmith Odeon.
