...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.

THOM THE WORLD POET: The Daily Poem

Rob Ayling, yer Gonzo Grande Fromage, writes: 


"Thom the World poet is an old mate of mine from way back in my history. Even pre-dating Voiceprint, when I was running "Otter Songs" and Thom's poetry tapes and guest appearances with Daevid Allen, Gilli Smyth and Mother Gong are well known and highly regarded. It just felt right to include a daily poem from Thom on our Gonzo blog and when I approached him to do so, he replied within seconds!!! Thom is a great talent and just wants to spread poetry, light and positive energy across the globe. If we at Gonzo can help him do that - why not?"


LOSING LEONARD
SINCE WE GREW UNDER HIS SONGS
His novels and his poems/seeing him in concert
enlarged each of us as we learned emotions as a dance and song
between consenting partners.Worlds of loners loved him more
as he embraced his long road round the globe,stopping in
to sing his grasshopper song to all the ants.We came to listen
as he spoke his deep.We were students .He would willingly teach
without anything other than his Muse and darker dreams to amuse us with.
Miss you already.Leonard.Your last Cd will rise to top of our attention box.
Your life was given bravely.We will quote you now,selectively.
Your final wish was generous."You want it darker"

So you gave it to us.Your Final act EXIT,darkly..into silence
