    Inspired by Malcom`s idea of Tom Petty and the Crash Test Dummies working together got me thinking about some strange encounters in music:

    -Texas psychedelic band the 13th Floor Elevators had their albums produced by Leland Rogers(brother of Kenny Rogers <img> )
    -Tom Waits once did a movie soundtrack with duets with Crystal Gayle <img>
    -Steve Albini produced Robert Plant/Jimmy Page`s 1998 album Walking Into Clarksdale
    -At a Johnny Cash concert years ago Tom Petty was sitting at a table with Henry Rollins
    -Tony Bennett Unplugged for MTV had J and Evan Dando guesting but got cut out when the show aired
    -Alice Cooper plays golf with Glen Campbell <img> <img>
    -On the MC5`s High Time album,Bob Seger plays percussion on it
    -Charles Manson tried out for The Monkees
    -80`s pop star Debbie Gibson did a song with the Circle Jerks,a cover of the Soft Boys I Wanna Destroy You <img>

    anyone got anything to add?

    I remember that Bowie and Crosby duet,very strange pairing <img>
    Pavorotti once toured with Tammy Wynette,Sting,and Peter Gabriel <img>

    I thought up another strange one:Captain Beefheart`s A and M sessions;produced by David Gates of Bread <img>

    A combination that I thought was quite stange when I first heard of it, but the results are very good:

    Nina Persson (the Cardigans) & Mark Linkous (Sparklehorse)

    their ‘A Camp’ record is a very enjoyable album!

    U2 & Luciano Pavarotti <img> <img>

    How about this one that turned up on the Mike Watt mailing list?

    </font><blockquote><font>quote:</font><hr><font> Tom Waits put together a band featuring Primus’ Les Claypool on bass, Bad Religion’s Brett Gurewitz on guitar and Casey Waits (his 16-year-old son) on drums to record "The Return of Jackie and Judy" for the Ramones tribute album being overseen by Rob Zombie. "We’re a Happy Family," which also features U2, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Metallica and the Pretenders, among others, is due this summer from Columbia Records….

    . . . and then there’s oysterhead, Les Claypool (primus), Trey Anastatio (Phish), and Stewert Copeland (the Police). Surprisingly good music though.

    Girlfriend of mine is NOT a paul mcartney fan, she borrowed a Paul Weller solo disc of mine as she was a huge Jam fan. She was holding the disc listening to the news when she heard Paul Weller was working with paul mcartney on a single/charity deal. She pitched the Weller disc at the tv, breaking both out of disgust <img> <img> <img> She definitely has an impulse control problem, not a mcartney fan myself but for charity sounds like a fair deal. They replaced my disc for me.

    That sgt pepper deal scares me <img> can you imagine if they remade it now, indie, hair bands, boy bands…I gotta stop I’m scaring myself <img>

    Funny you should mention Weller,when I was listening to Spoon earlier,I was thinking about how they sound kinda like The Jam on some songs.
    Not sure what to think of Weller`s solo stuff,I saw a video by the Style Council on mm not long ago,did`nt care for that;your friend`s dislike of Paul reminds me of that Archers Of Loaf song Ethel Merman which refers to an incident in Florida at the college radio station when someone was playing the Beatles,a guy went crazy with a sledgehammer and started smashing stuff <img> <img>

    Sledgehammer smashing caused by hearing the beatles… <img> <img> <img>

    Style Council may scare me just about as much as boy bands <img> Not a big fan of wellers solo stuff, like a couple songs but thats over more than a couple discs. Loved early Jam though <img>

    Allison

    ps not sure your plan is gonna work, may have to do that dance soon <img>
