He was brought up around music and sang in church choirs and various functions during his youth. In his teens, he picked up both the electric guitar and bass. While performing in London, Gregg was approached, and asked to join the band Osibisa, as their bass player. When they noticed Greggs vocal prowess, they immediately promoted him to lead singer.

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.
