I'M YER GONZO BLOG DOO-DAH MAN
And so another day dawns at Gonzo Daily. Just in case you think this means that I have only just got out of bed, for once that's just not true. I have been in the office since about 8:30, but I have had a whole slew of things to do (mostly involving playing catch-up from the weekend) and the blogs are only just done. But they are good 'uns:
We start off with some pictures that I bootlegged from a bootleg site. They are of Jon Anderson with a youth orchestra and I think they are rather touching. But as I say on the page, I'm not going to tell you where I got them, because I am almost certain that the site is a bootleg download one:
Whilst on the subject of Yes alumni, here is a Rick Wakeman review which seems to totally get what the new live CD is all about:
We have sad news for Hawkwind buffs. One of the founder members has died:
We have Michael Des Barres in the LA Weekly:
We have a link to a Chris Thompson review:
And another one to a Genre Peak one:
And finally, it is nothing to do with Gonzo but the new PiL album is really very good:
You will notice a new feature on the blog side bar. It is a news aggregator thingy called Scoop-it. Can you check it out for me please, and tell me what you think of it?
See you tomorrow..
