And so another working week begins. We are rushing around like the proverbial headless chickens trying to get everything sorted out before Corinna leaves tomorrow. The ever lovely Jess H is in the office with me today, and I hope we shall achieve great things today...
My brother-in-law Antony sent me a brief message on Facebook. He basically agreed with what I wrote yesterday about The Beach Boys on Later with Jools Holland, and sent me the following link. The story of how this band is unravelling before our eyes continues, and I make no apologies for featuring it heavily here on the Gonzo Daily. This is rock and roll history in action...http://gonzo-multimedia.blogspot.com/2012/10/the-beach-boys-not-having-that-much-fun.html
I often post links to stories about various Gonzofolk, but on the whole these tend to be 'professional' links; to reviews and interviews that have been conducted by websites that are known for doing such things. It is nice, therefore, to find the blog of just an ordinary person who just happens to like Michael Des Barres.
Another visit to the singular universe of Thom the World Poet
I have had these two reviews of the latest Erik Norlander CD/DVD packages floating about for a week or so now, and I am glad of the opportunity to post them...
News from the fabulous Cristiano Roversi about his new album 'AntiQua'.
A link to a very revealing interview with the massively groovy Paul Kantner...
The Gonzo Daily is a two way process. If you have any news or want to write for us, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are an artist and want to showcase your work, or even just say hello please write to me at email@example.com. Please copy, paste and spread the word about this magazine as widely as possible. We need people to read us in order to grow, and as soon as it is viable we shall be invading more traditional magaziney areas. Join in the fun, spread the word, and maybe if we all chant loud enough we CAN stop it raining. See you tomorrow...
The Gonzo Daily is - as the name implies - a daily online magazine (mostly) about artists connected to the Gonzo Multimedia group of companies. But it also has other stuff as and when the editor feels like it. The Editor is an old hippy of 53 who - together with his orange cat - puts it all together from a converted potato shed in a tumbledown cottage deep in rural Devon. He is ably assisted by his lovely wife Corinna, his bulldog/boxer Prudence, and a motley collection of social malcontents. Plus.. did we mention the orange cat?
