Michael Des Barres: Amor Prohibido. God, this is brilliant. I heard this first the day after it was recorded, and I love it to death. Somehow it has even more power than the English language version. Check it out, and then go buy it at iTunes...http://gonzo-multimedia.blogspot.com/2012/10/michael-des-barres-new-single-remember.html

As regular readers will know, I am very fond of the music of Cap[tain Beefheart and am not averse to using the excuse that there is a Beefheart volume in the Lost Broadcasts series as an excuse to post a link to a retrospective look at one of his classic albums.
I am very fond of Helen McCookerybook and I hope to be talking to her later today about various projects of hers. Today, however, I have half inched various bits from her blog about a new club she is starting. Herewith Club Artyfartle. I might even try and get a gig there myself..
I found this video interview with Rick Wakeman's son Adam yesterday, and was so interested that I shamelessly used the fact that his dad is a Gonzodude to repost it here today.
Whilst on the subject of things Wakemanesque, those jolly nice people at Classic Rock are putting out a Rick Wakeman fanpack based around the Journey to the Centre of the Earth album.
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?
