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.

LUCA FERRARI: Mike Taylor's brother went on a little pilgrimage

Tony Tomlin went to Southend-on-Sea cemetery.

Brother of sax player Dave, Tony Tomlin, who helped me with some decisive researches for the book, recently went to cemetery whereMike Taylor's headstone stands...
He sent me some new photos taken there with my (our) book leant on the grave.
He wrote: "I went to the cemetery! Mike's headstone has a serious list now, not helped by an Elder bush which is trying to push him over. Not the easieast angle to take pictures but hopefully one of these will be of interest to you...".

The importance of Tony on the reconstruction of Mike Taylor's biography is most of all to have researched and found the right place of the headstone, when none knew or remembered where it was...

In this terrible year for the Arts, where so many musicians have passed away, we can only regret a great artist as the young Mike Taylor who dead at only 30 in so strange circumstances...
