...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.

ANDERSON PONTY BAND DETAIL NORTH AMERICAN TOUR

Former Yes man Jon and jazz-fusion violinist Jean-Luc will head out on the road in October

The Anderson Ponty Band have announced a run of North American shows for later this year.

Former Yes frontman Jon Anderson and jazz-fusion violinist Jean-Luc Ponty launched a Kickstarter campaign last year to help support the production of an album. The as-yet-untitled record is expected to be released in October.

Anderson said of the collaboration: “A breakthrough feeling came as I sang with Jean-Luc’s music. To be in a band again is exciting on so many levels. We'll play and sing our way round the world and have fun.”

Joining Anderson and Ponty in the lineup are keyboardist Wally Minko, guitarist Jamie Dunlap, drummer Rayford Griffin and bassist Baron Browne.

The band say they’ll announce further dates in December.
