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?"

Much respect for your respect
I have been to Ossian the Bard's grave high on Northern Ireland hills
and the homes of Wordsworth,Dickens,
the towers of Joyce and Yeats
Pierre la Chaise--Stendhal,Guy De Maupassant,Edith Piaf,Oscar Wilde-and the Lizard King himself
Sat in Wordsworth's chair,O'Henry's chair
Was at Dean Swift's resting place-with his mistress STELLA also there
Much respect to those who lived so powerfully before and with us 
and to you who revere their accomplishments
(In Birmingham,in the Bullring Marketplace,there is a placard that speaks of a poet who frequented that market hundreds of years ago-sharing poems among people just like Albert Huffstickler..

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.
