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.

Frank Zappa Documentary Director To Share News On Film During AMA Session

One of the upcoming music-related documentaries we’re most excited to see is a Frank Zappa film currently in production that has the approval of the Zappa Family Trust. The new documentary is being put together by director Alex Winter who might be best familiar to our readers as Bill S. Preston from the 1989 film Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure as well as its 1991 sequel Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey. Winter will discuss the film during an upcoming Ask Me Anything session on Reddit.

In a tweet announcing the session, Winter revealed he’ll be making a “big announcement” about the Zappa Film as part of it. “There has yet to be a definitive, authorized documentary on the extraordinary life and work of Frank Zappa,” the filmmaker said last summer when news of the film was first announced. “I am beyond thrilled to be embarking on this journey. Our tale will be told primarily in Frank’s own words; he will be our guide through this journey.”

“This is not an easy story to tell and we trust that Alex truly understands the complex and multifaceted man that my father was,” Frank’s son Ahmet Zappa noted last summer. Alex Winter’s Ask Me Anything session will start on Tuesday, March 8 at 3 p.m. ET.
