...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.

CLEARWATER – Blues singer, guitarist and songwriter, John Mayall makes his Capitol Theatre debut Thursday, May 14, 7:30 p.m.

Mayall is the founder of John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers, a band which included some of the most famous blues musicians of all time including Eric Clapton, Mick Fleetwood, Peter Green and Mick Taylor. Mayall’s biggest hits include “Room to Move,” “California” and “Country Road.” In 2007, he released his 56th album and in 2009, he put a band together to release the album “Tough.” In May of 2014, he released his most recent album, “A Special Life.” 

Tickets start at $39. Call 791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com. The Capitol Theatre is at 405 Cleveland St.

According to Mayall’s biography, provided by Mark Pucci Media, Mayall found himself in a North Hollywood studio with his band back in 2013 – around the same time when the godfather of British blues was preparing for his 80th birthday. Joining him was special guest C.J. Chenier and co-producer/engineer Eric Corne. When Mayall and company walked out of that studio, one of the finest and most personal records of his career, “A Special Life,” had been born.

Mayall was born in 1933 and grew up in a village not far from Manchester, England. It was here as a teenager that he first became attracted to the jazz and blues 78s in his father's record collection.
