...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.

INTERVIEW WITH LEGENDARY DRUMMER ALAN WHITE

alan white 640

Many rock legends have, obviously, lived the dream of being rock legends. It takes an enormous amount of work, practice, networking, hunger, and climbing of the musical ladder to get there, and those who have reached the top will tell you how difficult the journey was. They’ll say stuff like, “Bro, we slept in a van for two years before getting our first big gig.” I know this because I’m currently on that journey. I’ve been trying to be an official rocker for some time now, but I’m also happy as the amateur rocker that I currently am.

On my own journey to the top, I’ve had the opportunity to talk to many men who have reached rock stardom about their experiences assimilating into the industry. None of those people, though, are quite like Alan White, drummer for Yes, John Lennon, George Harrison, Joe Cocker, and many others. What sets him apart is the fact that he literally has never been on an audition. He’s never had a “real” job. He never even tried to be a rock legend.
