Today we take Lars Thomas and his son to Taunton so that they can begin their journey back to Denmark. Then we come home, and the madness really is over for another year. Tomorrow is my 53rd Birthday, and after that everything goes back to the nearest thing that we get to normal. Thank you for being forbearing whilst the last few weeks trundled to their conclusion. Normal service will be totally resumed within a couple of days....
A particularly interesting Michael Des Barres interview is the first item of note on today's Gonzo Daily. I have said this before, I know, but I am always impressed by how Michael consistenly says something new and fresh in each interview..
I don't know why I haven't come across 'Fireworks' magazine before. It seems to be a jolly nice little publication with interesting content and nicely sharp writing. Herewith a review of 'Galahad' from the current issue.
Another visit to the singular universe of Thom the World Poet:
I am very pleased to see what a positive reaction the Captain Beefheart 'Lost Broadcasts' DVD is getting. I am really rather impressed by it, and I am glad to see that others are to.
I have been a singer on and off for the past 35 years. You can check me out on spotify if you like. But I have always envied Chris Thompson his wonderful big, soulfull, expressive voice. His new CD/DVD set is fantastic, and it is good to see that I am not the only one that thinks so.
We first posted about Rick Wakeman's planned 2013 revival of his King Arthur show a few months ago. Now the word has spread and even the BBC arts pages have covered the story. So, being the kind of guy that I am, I have pinched this expanded story from the BBC. Check it out... http://gonzo-multimedia.blogspot.com/2012/08/rick-wakeman-king-arthur-june-2013.html
That's it for today guys. See you tomorrow....
