Dr Gonzo first met John Derr playing in St Kilda cult band The Editions that featured Fred Negro on drums. A constant visitor to the band's share house mansion in acland street even recording one of their cassette albums from an old 3 ton truck with wires coming from the house and across the pavement to the mobile recording studio. He also interviewed John and the rest of the band on the radio pop program on 3PBS radio when the studio was housed over the road from the group's house at the prince of wales hotel.

John Derr's musical style was particularly influenced by kiss and he insisted that the editions attend a concert by the group when they played Melbourne. Gonzo also enjoyed conversations with john about his love of tamla motown and soul music. Nearly 4 decades later after a long career recording and releasing blues artists john derr has finally released his first solo album, recorded during covid lockdown.
