Our daily visit to the life of Thom the World Poet
My Brother-in-law Antony sent me a Led Zeppelin link which will be of interest. Thanks dude...
Look what I found yesterday whilst pootling about on the Internet - some previews of the forthcoming Renaissance album. Ypu have read Annie Haslam talking about the album on these very pages. Now you can hear bits of it. Whooppee!!
I also found this rather tasty little morsel - a new Auburn track from their current acoustic lineup
Whilst on the subject of Auburn. Here is a very peculiar picture of Auburn bassdude Jevon with a purple cat. The two of them are on the way to the Edinburgh gig...
So, we have come to the third and final part of my interview with Michael Des Barres the other day. I was quite surprised how it ended up as three parts, because it was only meant to be a quicky. However, when Michael and I get chatting, we talk for ages. And we talk about Bob Dylan, Damon Albarn, John Lennon and what killed Elvis, as well as all the stuff that we were supposed to be talking about.
And finally a review of one of the more peculiar rock music autobiographies that I have read: Neil Young's 'Waging Heavy Peace'
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?
