...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.

The Rolling Stones' Ronnie Wood Shares Byrds Lawsuit, Keith Moon Stories From New Book 'How Can It Be?'

Ronnie WoodBesides helping give Rolling Stones fans plenty to hear during the group's Zip Code tour -- which launched Sunday, May 24 -- the legendary rock band's guitarist Ronnie Wood is giving them something to read, too.
Wood has just published How Can It Be? A Rock & Roll Diary, a lavish recreation of a journal he kept -- with both prose and sketches -- during 1965, when he was playing in a band called The Birds (which actually sued The Byrds when the American group visited Britain during 1965). Recreated by high-end British publisher Genesis Publications, How Can It Be? shows us Wood's burgeoning career at 17, with almost "Zelig"-like connections to rock'n'roll royalty such asEric ClaptonThe WhoJeff Beck and many others.
