...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.

Legendary bands Toto and Yes perform at the Greek Theatre in LA


Legendary rock bands Toto and Yes performed to a sold out crowd at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles on September 6th for the final shows near the end of their tour. Both bands joined forces to give dedicated fans a concert to remember and the chance to witness the greatness of their music. Toto opened the show and performed many of their classics including "Hold the Line", "Africa", "Rosanna" as well as material from their awesome new album "Toto XIV". The band members including Joseph Williams (Vocals), Steve Porcaro (Keyboards/Synthesizers), David Paich (Keyboards), Steve Lukather (Guitar), Keith Carlock (Drums) sounded better than ever, if that's even possible! The audience was instantly reminded of the pure excellence of such talented musicians, all under one roof.

Singer Joseph William's voice sounded amazing as he soared through each and every note with ease, giving the fans just what they wanted to hear on their favorite Toto songs. Meanwhile, guitarist Steve Lukather played an emotionally charged guitar solo of Jimi Hendrix's "Little Wing", which also brought the house down. David Paich and Steve Porcaro as always, added their legendary touches to the keyboards and synthesizers, which have made Toto one of the most successful bands in the world. Let's not forget the awesome sounds of David Hungate on bass and Shannon Forrest on drums.

The performances from both bands was nothing short of spectacular especially for those who had never seen a Toto or Yes concert before, including myself. It was truly an honor to catch this incredible show and see first hand, how amazing their music sounded live. It is easy to see how Toto, who formed in Van Nuys CA, 1977 have sold over 40 million records worldwide throughout their hugely successful career, according towikipedia.
