Oh! More bad news for anyone looking forward to U2's stage musical about Spider-Man: you're an idiot.
You'd think there could be no less exciting words in the rock-and-roll lexicon than "drummer solo album" — Chad Smith from the RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS is prepping one as we speak — but I actually find myself more disturbed by resurgent rumblings of Peter Hook's FREEBASS project, an impending basstravaganza featuring Andy Rourke of the Smiths and Mani from the Stone Roses. Three bassists: all the skepticism and disbelief of a bassist solo career, cubed. I've been hearing about this shit since 2005, and the fact that nothing yet has come of it is no comfort — it only means they're preparing something big.
And the Chad Smith album is called Chad Smith's Bombastic Meatbats: Meet the Meatbats. So if you still harbored any lingering doubts about how shitty it's going to be, there's your answer.
