Gregg Kofi Brown Belgium Book review translated

Two weeks ago I discussed here the eponymous CD. Gregg Kofi Brown was part of the African band Osibisa. During the 22 years he was with the band, he traveled around the world. Gregg has worked in his career with well-known names such as Elton John, Joe Cocker, Eric Burdon (The Animals), Peter Green (Fleetwood Mac), Isaac Hayes, Damon Albarn's Africa Express, Jimmy Cliff, Mory Kante, Sting, Billy Cobham, Des "Ree and Gabriele. In 2005 his solo debut. This autobiographical book recounts his experiences as a bass player and producer, his show in London's West End with "Tribute to the Blues Brothers," and acting as Jelly Roll Morton in London's prestigious Royal Court Theatre. He also tells how he became a number one hit on Billboard, as well as three alien encounters in the desert of California.

It reads smoothly and will certainly appeal to fans to explore the backgrounds.

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.
