Weird Collaborations

Some strange collaborations have surfaced in the pop culture lexicon.
Late last year, when word got out about the Lil Wayne and Weezer team-up, I cringed. I was befuddled when I saw rock n' roll legend and Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant team up with bluegrass singer Allison Krauss.

This oddball collaboration takes the cake: Stephen King and John Mellencamp are working together on a musical. Yes, you read that right. Like singing and dancing....on a stage. In a theatre.

Who do you cast to star in a King and Mellencamp-produced musical? Why, Elvis Costello and Kris Kristofferson, naturally. Throw Sheryl Crow and Roseanne Cash into the mix, and you have...theatrical gold?!?

The musical, called Ghost Brothers of Darkland County, will also be made into a triple-cd and book set. No release date is cited.

What do you think are the best and worst collaborations?


  1. Chris Cornell and Timbaland. Aw HELL no.

  2. Yeah, not so much with that one. LOL
