...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.

SHERWOOD REVEALS CITIZEN DETAILS



SHERWOOD REVEALS CITIZEN DETAILS

NEWS / SCOTT MUNRO / 10 SEP 2015
Yes bassist Billy will release 11-track solo album on November 6
Yes bassist Billy Sherwood will release his solo album Citizen on November 6.

It features a who’s-who of names from the world of prog, including Steve Morse, Alan Parsons, Steve Hackett, John Wetton, Tony Kaye, Steve Hillage, Partrick Moraz, John Wesley, Jerry Goodman, Dixie Dregs, Colin Moulding, Geoff Downes, Jordan Rudess, Rick Wakeman, Jon Davison and the late Chris Squire.

Sherwood says: “It’s a concept album about a lost soul reincarnated in various historical settings. At one point, the character is reincarnated during The Great Depression and is dealing with the loss of everything and is forced to take drastic measures.

“Another time, the citizen is a World War One trench-runner for a song called No Man’s Land, where he’s running through the fields watching his comrades die.”

Sherwood confirms that the album’s protagonist also appears as an astronaut, a Roman Legionnaire, a factory worker during the industrial age and the assistant to 16th century astronomer Galileo.

He adds: “While I've created a lot of this record myself I couldn't have done it without the amazing talents brought to bear by all the great artists who participated. I feel it's much more of a collective effort than a solo album.”
