Rick Wakeman talks about the Gliderdrome

Rock legend Rick Wakeman was at the Gliderdrome, in Boston, on Thursday, filming a documentary for the BBC, describing it as ‘one of the great rock and roll venues’.

The keyboardist, who played for the Strawbs and Yes in the 60s and 70s was using the venue for a programme on the history of the tour bus.

He told The Standard: “It was one of the great rock and roll venues, everybody loved playing there and it hasn’t really changed.
He said: “Back in the 60’s vans and tour busses were the lifeblood of every man on the road. In those days there were vans everywhere with bands travelling all over. The history of the different kinds of buses and how it worked was a huge part of the rock and roll history.”

...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.
