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.

Peggy’s bass to raise tidy sum for hospice

Peggy and the Tracey Bullard signature bass NNL-150316-113940001
A one-off, signature bass guitar autographed by folk and rock icons such as Robert Plant, Ralph McTell, Steve Ashley and Danny Thompson is being auctioned for charity.

The acoustic bass was was made for Dave ‘Peggy’ Pegg of Fairport Convention and can be seen in action in the band’s most recent YouTube video of their new song, John Condon.

After the death from cancer of his former pub landlady, Tracey Bullard, Peggy decided to put the guitar – now decorated with many folk and rock stars’ autographs – up on Ebay to raise money for Katharine House Hospice, where Tracey was cared for in her final days.
Peggy said: “It’s been renamed the Tracey Bullard Signature Bass after a lovely lady called Tracey Bullard who lived in Barford St Michael and used to run our pub up the road, The George . She sadly died last year and spent her last week in the wonderful Katharine House Hospice.
