And so another working week begins. Graham and I are off to Southampton tomorrow to film Jefferson Starship and Auburn, and we have a month-long exhibition starting at Barnstaple Museum on saturday. There are all sorts of exciting things happening behind the scenes, and any hopes that I once had that this wintter would be a nice, quiet, relaxing one, are rapidly going out of the window...
The other day when I was talking to Liz Lenten, she told me how Jefferson Starship had called her onstage at Edinburgh to join them singing 'Volunteers'. Now, usually there is a noo-bootleg rule here on Gonzo Daily, but I found this clip on YouTube, and all the rules went out the window.
One generation got old
One generation got soul
I also found this peculiar film clip of Rick Wakeman arriving at a venue in New Zealand, which I am reposting for its curiosity value..
Part two of our massive interview with Helen McCookerybook...

If God can sing, (s)he has a voice like Scott Walker. The maestro has another album in the works and we have a preview from those jolly nice folks at 4AD..

Our daily visit to the work of Thom the World Poet
Also on the subject of Thom, here is something he wrote to me after I enhanced his poem about Malala Yousufzai with images and weblinks. I also post the latest news on this brave child.
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?
