...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.

JOHN McLAUGHLIN WRITES:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/John-McLaughlins-Double-neck-guitar-/202126194578

For my farewell tour of the U.S. Paul Reed Smith built me the guitar of my dreams: a hand made double neck 6 and 12 string with a whammy bar on the 6 string.  It’s a magnificent instrument and it’s already priceless to me. It’s for this reason I wish to auction it after my tour in December 2017, to raise money for a non-profit organisation in Ramallah, who are healing through music therapy, traumatized children and women. The entire proceeds from the sale of my guitar will go to the Music Therapy Center in Ramallah.

Children are the future of our world, and those born in Palestine suffer for no reason other than to have been born there. The funds from the sale of my guitar will help alleviate this suffering.


Speaking as an ‘old hippy’, If I’m not part of the solution, I’m part of the problem.
Thank you for reading. JM
