Johnny Depp Recording “Son of Rogue’s Gallery”

Interesting.

The original Rogue’s Gallery was more mediocre than good, but it did have a few gems. A sequel all these years later? Normally I’d suggest that ship has sailed (hah!) but there are a few in the lineup that interest me. Iggy Pop in particular would seem well suited to the task of crusty sailor songs. And Courtney Love? Yeah, she could have been right at home in a seedy dockside bar, I’d wager.

Don’t get me wrong; there’s every chance this album will be wretch. BUT… maybe not :)

Thanks to Jason Lang for bringing this one to my attention!

    This supports my theory that Michael Stipe is a pirate.

    If the first released track is anything to go by? Utter crap.
