...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.

Arts Q&A: Barbara on the Beatles, WALL-E & rugby

Arts Q&A: Barbara on the Beatles, WALL-E & rugby

1. When did you think about music as a career and what were your first steps into it?
I always wanted to be a musician. My first tentative steps as a singer/guitarist were at the folk club in Dunfermline, where I grew up. It all stemmed from there.
2. Best gigs you’ve been to?
James Taylor at the Royal Albert Hall in the 80s and Paul Simon on the Graceland tour. The first astonishing concert I remember was Pete Seeger at Aberdeen Music Hall in the mid-60s.
3. Fantasy wedding/birthday party band of choice?
The Beatles would be fantastic. Or, failing that, The Band.
4. The record you would take to a desert island?
This is a difficult one, but I’d say Good Vibrations by The Beach Boys.
5. And the book?
A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking would be good, as I’d have the time to try to understand it.
6. Top three films?
My favourite film is The Searchers by John Ford. I also love The Godfather and WALL-E, the Pixar film.
