Gonzo Magazine #174
Keith Emerson's death broke about half an hour after we went to press last weekend. As promised this week is a tribute iossue dedicated to him, and we would like to extend our condolences to his loved ones.
Keith Emerson, Erik Norlander, ELP, Patrick Moraz, Greg Lake, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Mr Biffo, Roy Weard, Dogwatch, That Legendary Wooden Lion, Hawkwind, and Yes fans had better look out!
Keith Emerson is on the front cover, and inside Erik Norlander and Richard Stellar remember the Keith Emerson they knew. There are also statements from Greg Lake and Patrick Moraz. Doug writes about what many believe was ELP's finest hour, while Jon remembers the influence Keith Emerson had on his life. There is an open letter from Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, and Gregg Kofi Brown tour dates. We review a book about Anarchopunk. John looks forward to a revolutionary spectacular at the V&A museum. Biffo looks at poo graffiti. There are radio shows from Strange Fruit, Friday Night Progressive, and Mack Maloney, the latest installment of the saga of Xtul, and columns from all sorts of folk including Roy Weard, Neil Nixon and the irrepressible Corinna. There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and pademelons ouyside zoos(OK, nothing to do with small marsupials who have escaped from captivity, but I got carried away with things that rhymed with OOOOS) than you can shake a stick at. And the best part is IT's ABSOLUTELY FREE!!!
