Gonzo Weekly #270

Gonzo Weekly #270
This issue became a very Eric Clapton oriented one as Phil critiques his new movie, and Dave Brock of Hawkwind remembers his relationship with the legendary guitarist back in the day. In the meantime, Alan spins a surreal tale involving Salvador Dali, and John and Yoko, amongst others, Ringo gets knighted, and Jon talks about the mega successful and much scorned author
Dan Brown.
Hail Eris!
And there are radio shows from Mack Maloney AND Strange Fruit, AND Friday Night Progressive. The columns from all sorts of folk including Neil Nixon, Roy Weard, C J Stone, Mr Biffo are on hiatus this week, but we do have the irrepressible Corinna. There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and southern dibblers who have thought up a ruse (OK, nothing to do with small marsupials who have read too much Roger the Dodger, but I got carried away with things that rhymed with OOOOS) than you can shake a stick at. And the best part is IT's ABSOLUTELY FREE!!!

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.
