...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.

Mountain drummer Corky to open UK tour in Southampton

Corky Laing (53583123)DRUMMER, songwriter, singer and raconteur Corky Laing will be playing the first night of his eight date UK Tour with his band, at The Talking Heads in May.

Legendary Mountain drummer, Laurence “Corky” Laing a native of Montreal Canada, is said to be one of the hardest hitting drummers in the history of rock music. Mountain forged a style and sound that changed the face of rock music and the powerhouse double-drummer along with with Leslie West, Felix Pappalardi and Steve Knight gave us Mississippi Queen, Nantucket Sleighride, Theme from an Imaginary Western and many more. Although best known as a long-time member of the pioneering American hard rock band Mountain and for West, Bruce & Laing, Corky has been busy on other projects in recent years.
