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.

Laguna Beach singer and Yes carry on after loss

A little over a month after the death of bassist Chris Squire, the surviving members of Yes, the legendary prog rock band Squire co-founded, watched a video tribute on screen at the Connecticut theater where Yes was about to play its first show without him.

It was an emotional moment, says singer Jon Davison, the Laguna Beach native who joined the band nearly four years ago. “We’re all hugging on the side of the stage, and then to go out there ... it was strange because Chris was such an anchor on the stage for the band.”

Yes arrives at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday, with Toto serving as its opening act. Squire expected to be on this tour when it was announced in April, but was diagnosed with leukemia the following month and died in late June at age 67.

While the band has come to terms with the sudden loss, his presence still is felt on stage every night, according to Davison and drummer Alan White.
