to do the Gonzo Blogs in rhyme
why do we do something so daft?
basically cos it makes me laugh
and though the poems aren't much cop
Rob Ayling's never said to stop
and so basically cos I choose
each sunday I'll excercise my muse
It doesn't seem likely my dear
but Hendrix'd have been 70 this year
who have we got to remember Jimi?
Here is Motorhead's own Lemmy
Club Artyfartle sounds so good
just like we always knew it would
but we weren't there to take a look
so we;ve interviewed Helen McCookerybook
And now its time to take you down
into the depths of Austin town,
who to meet? Wouldn't you know it?
Gosh, its Thomas the World Poet
My wife sent me this piece of news
it seems despite headbanging and booze
their public image is just shite
and Heavy Metal fans are quite bright
Erik N tinkles the ivories
to produce a lot of sounds wot please
and brings the audience to its knees
so he releases them on DVDs
And finally for today's rhymes
a reminder of some gentler times
memories that mean a lot to me
on the Lost Broadcasis, 'Move' DVD
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?
