...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.

ST. CHARLES, Mo. — World-renowned recording artists Yes rocked the Family Arena Wednesday night, along with Toto who clearly held their own.
Lifetime Yes followers cheered the chart-topping band under the roof of the St. Charles County venue as soon as they heard the guitars’ first chords. Toto co-headlined the North American tour playing first.
Current lead singer since 2012, Jon Davison didn’t miss a beat singing all of the group’s greatest hits.
Among the world’s most influential, ground-breaking, and respected progressive rock bands, Grammy Award-winning Yes has sold nearly 40 million albums in a career that has so far spanned more than four decades.
Yes continued with its tradition of symphonic progressive rock at the Family Arena remaining timeless, fresh and innovative to legions of multi-generational fans. Yes played iconic favorites “I’ve Seen All Good People,” “Owner of a Lonely Heart,” “Roundabout,” and “Starship Trooper” as the encore. Earlier in the evening Yes guitarist Steve Howe did a solo on “Clap.”
Yes alumnus Billy Sherwood on bass joined the tour with current Yes band members Davison, Howe, Alan White and Geoff Downes. Sherwood played in place of the band’s founding member Chris Squire, who recently lost his battle with acute erythroid leukemia, an uncommon form of acute myeloid leukemia.
Toto’s lead guitarist Steve Lukather gave an outstanding performance along with the other Toto ensemble members prior to Yes taking center stage.
