What are some weird/surprising meetings between two musicians?
It wouldn't surprise me that Beck is a Cash fan 2bh
Cash liked Beck, too. He covered Rowboat.
Tiny Tim once did a collab with Current 93 and Nurse With Wound
I didn't know about that one but I knew he did a split with GG Allin
Cash was pretty hip when he was old. Consider the fact that his last few albums were mostly covers of bands like Nick Cave and Nine Inch Nails.
Cash with Strummer was cooler.
Shirley Collins and C93 was pretty awesome too.
Unfortunately they didn't record anything together.
He also remade "Tiptoe" with a punk group, forget which though.
Not that weird/surprising I just love these pictures
is that robert christgau
This one gets me every time
they used to hang out and do drugs
I have got about a dozen NWW CDs and things in my closet and I never knew about this and I love you very much.
As a general freakout, it reminds me of "brained by falling masonry".
Who is that guy next to Kanye?

After the group disbanded in 1970, he pursued a solo career and formed the band Wings with his first wife, Linda, and Denny Laine.
McCartney is one of the most successful composers and performers of all time. More than 2,200 artists have covered his Beatles song "Yesterday", making it one of the most covered songs in popular music history. Wings' 1977 release "Mull of Kintyre" is one of the all-time best-selling singles in the UK. A two-time inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (as a member of the Beatles in 1988, and as a solo artist in 1999), and an 18-time Grammy Award winner, McCartney has written, or co-written, 32 songs that have reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100, and as of 2009 he has 25.5 million RIAA-certified units in the United States. McCartney, Lennon, Harrison and Starr all received appointment as Members of the Order of the British Empire in 1965 and, in 1997, McCartney was knighted for services to music. McCartney is also one of the wealthiest musicians in the world, with an estimated net worth of US$1.2 billion.
please be joking
Archy looks shitfaced
“David and I didn’t actually meet until I first went back to New York, after I’d done Patti [Smith]. When we did that bootleg, it was like the good old bad old days. We were partying very hard. It was exciting working with him, as there were a lot of possibilities and everything, but we were our own worst enemies at that point.”
“We also played that show for Steve Reich and Philip Glass. That was a lot of fun. That was when we were hanging out, so I asked David if he’d like to come and play Sabotage with me. I ended up teaching him the viola part, which he had a whack at and then ended up playing on stage for the first time.”
“Did I ever want to produce Bowie? After spending time with him, I realised the answer was no. The way we were then would have made it too dangerous. Nowadays it would be different, though. He could improvise songs very well, which was what that bootleg was all about. The great thing about when we met and then started hanging out in the ’70s was that he would say [puts on thick Welsh accent] “That’s Dai Jones from Wales, isn’t it?” He loved all that. That set us off. We got along really well, but most of what we were doing was just partying.”
Not that weird but w/e
This is probably the worst photograph of Bowie in existence.
Boredoms were down with the American rock bands of the time, they had a collab album with Ween as well.
Bowie was also apparently a fan of Grandaddy and apparently just straight up went to one of their shows one time
Jason Lytle of indie space-rock band Grandaddy recalls a night in the early 2000s when the band was powering onto bigger and bigger stages. A rumor was going around that Bowie was a fan. Lytle wasn’t buying it. Then came the show in New York where Bowie was in the audience.
“I had other people tell me this: he was singing choruses and calling out names of songs, like a fan requesting songs. He ends up backstage. And he was so normal and so sweet. And he knew names of the band members; he’d done his research already and was talking to individual people. I was trying not to get too freaked out about this.”
I swear I hate my generation
interesting, didn't know about this one. He liked Tricky as well
Only 1 left
Who are these people
surprisingly unfunny filename
is the guy in the middle jim carrey as the mask
This one's more surprising
i wonder if cash knew who he was
Corgan is the only good one there
Grandaddy was poor man's Mercury Rev
Go back to being dead Lou
What bothers me about this picture is that you have the most stylish band and the most stylish artist and they all look pretty shit except maybe DK
Everyone have a photo with Bowie or what?
Bowie is omnipresent
This is actually really badass
thank you for your hot take on an image everyone laughs at
I have a photo of mozart with bach somewhere
Oh dear oh dear
Birds of a feather
Bowie has a photo with everyone, rather.
Whos on the right?
why does johnny cash look so fucking creepy here
here, have this one with Tricky. Bowie did a eulogy for him http://www.moon-palace.de/tricky/q95.html
David Bowie once called you "a shaman that had never slept with The Others, who's still pure"
What's funny about David Bowie, right … I've never been a fan, I was into the Specials. But when he wrote that thing about me, I thought this guy should write a book, not make music. Cos he writes incredible.
Is the Martina in that article Martina Topley-Bird? I figure it is. Interesting piece, and he's right about Tricky. Not the biggest fan of his music (although I love MA and Maxinquaye) but the man is an uncompromising artist and I respect that.
I always assumed so.
but the man is an uncompromising artist and I respect that.
I agree, I wasn't a Tricky fan, I discovered Maxinquaye through Bowie. I think he was talking about him and PJ Harvey in one of the 1. Outside promotion interviews, so I guess both artists did have some sort of influence in his songwriting. There was this article that Bowie did, in which he interviews his younger self, definitely read that one if you like Bowie.
this makes me happy
I only see good ol Macca wtf dude
you vs the guy she tells you not to worry about
I will, thanks.
Holy shit, that takes me back.
Wasn't Frank Sinatra a Billy Idol fan?
a shaman that had never slept with The Others
the hell does that mean
heh it does, I could only find similar stuff on fan forums and websites.
watch this is one 'interview'( that I still love), it's comfy I guess
ITS NOT A PHASE DAD
What's his father like? I thought he didn't have a father, i read something about his grandma raising him.
why is usama bin laden flying in MJ's private jet...
His dad and mom were poor and just got divorced, and could only afford to raise either him or his sister, so they sent him with his grandparents.
After Rez got sober, he sent his grandpa off on world adventures or took him to shows to get him out of the rustbelt. pic related.
bowie with a mustache is turning me gay t b h
That's cool of Trent
Is Pharell a fucking vampire
Manlets don't age.
Also Andrew WK with Current 93
Fun fact, the pic is from the Miami era, so Cocteau Twins were probably recording Garlands at that point. Dont know if they got to share bill thou
Christ Little Richard is just a walking corpse.
Imagine going to see Nirvana in 92 and the Boredoms are the opening band
Almost a perfect show, if you ask me.
YOU JUST KNOW
whos the old guy
At first glance I thought Sean Lennon had let himself go and inherited the yellow fever from his father
Still wish it worked out better between them
“David quietly tells me, ‘You know, I’ve had so much sex and drugs that I can’t believe I’m still alive,’ and I loudly tell him, ‘You know, I’ve had SO LITTLE sex and drugs that I can’t believe I’m still alive.’”
golden age japan
peak 90s spirituality
boredoms and nirvana
lol I wouldn't really compare them much at all
Jason Lytle makes music from a simple place and isn't really even instrumentally comparable to Mercury Rev imo
