The Gonzo Daily - Monday
And so we start another week. Richard got back from Tasmania yesterday, and
whilst he didn't see a thylacine (we never thought that he would) he has many
new samples, and a whole slew of eyewitness testimony. He will be here tomorrow
so expect some more news then...

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!!!
