...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.

AL ATKINS TEAMS UP WITH JUDAS PRIEST BASSIST IAN HILL

Group's original singer working on solo album that includes performances from former bandmate

Original Judas Priest singer Al Atkins is working on a solo 'best of' album that'll include guest appearances from Ian Hill, Dennis Stratton, Bernie Torme and Jess Cox.

Atkins' album will include re-recorded versions of tracks from throughout his 40-year career. It's as-yet-untitled, but former Maiden guitarist Stratton, Ozzy guitarist Torme and ex Tygers Of Pan Tang singer Jess Cox will appear – along with Priest bassist Hill who appears on two songs.

The idea for the album came about after his involvement in 2013's Atkins May Project.

Atkins tells Power Of Metal: "It came about after Paul May and myself were asked to record a ‘best of’ album by our record company and so we recorded the Atkins May Project – Anthology. It then got me thinking about recording my own solo ‘best of’ album but set about re-recording all of my favourite songs from the last four decades and using guest players.
