  1. My vote goes to Robert Smith being on a track in the new Blink 182 album :D

  7. What's wrong with Johnny Cash and U2?? Johnny and Bono were very good friends I believe, and each performed the other's songs in concert.

    David Bowie and Bing Crosby, definitely weirds me out, especially since it's a Xmas tune.

  11. George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher on vocals and Diana Krall on vocals and piano would be kinda weird. Maybe add f|3LdY on bass. :ninja:

    Cannibal Corpse did do a duet with Tori Amos once.

    I'd like to have heard that.

    i think Stu Hamm does a duet thing with a boxer during his gig at teatro zinani (sp?). i bet thats pretty crazy. another one is Stanley Clarke (bass) and Gregory Hines (tap dancing) on "If This Bass Could Talk" and "Bassically Taps". both killer songs, cool combination.

    This is the one I thought of when I first saw the topic. I remember seeing the video for this too. *shudders* If I had to sum this collaboration up with one word, 'awkward' continually comes to mind. The fact they're singing Little Drummer Boy makes it all the more strange for some reason.

    The story behind Tom Jones and Nina Persson of The Cardigans duet ("Burning down the house") is amusing, because there was no way they could record them together singing into the same mic (which I believe is commonplace with duets). Jones = LOUD, Persson = quiet. Perhaps doesn't count as weird, but I still find it amusing.

    It's sad that the article says "Who the hell is Jeff Beck." In a perfect world, the article would ask "Who the hell are the White Stripes.
