Andrew makes a surprise appearance

October 29, 2007

One of the original members of the Wolfmother Forums and avid spammer contributor, Cassie, was at a Linkin Park show last week, when Chris Cornell (who was supporting) suddenly announced that the next song he was singing would be with … Mr Stockdale.

In Cassie’s own words:

Chris cornell says “normally i sing this song with insert name, but im going to be singing with my good friend andrew” i was just like yeh yeh cool AND THEN i saw that ever noticable hair and OMG it was andrew stockdale..insane right!

so recap..i was sitting in my seat at a LINKIN PARK concert AND ANDREW SUNG AT IT

very proud to say his voice was right on the job, i went nuts, screaming crazily, getting very odd looks especially from the person i went with but hey it was an awesome surprise!

They sang one of the audioslave songs yeop

Not a bad turn of events (particularly after enduring Linkin Park – apologies to any fans!). Quite a beard too, eh?

Andrew and Chris in Queen tribute

October 13, 2007

Queen - Freddy Mercury

[update] Having looked into this story a bit more it appears that it might be nothing more than something some idiot made up a year or more back, and it’s gradually spread around. I guess we will see in a month whether there is anything to it or not! In the meantime, take the post below with a pinch of salt …

Andrew and Chris are both included in a prestigious list of artists in an upcoming tribue album to Queen.

The song they are covering is “Tie your mother down” – quite appropriate!

Other top names include Axle Rose, Robbie Williams, Vince Neil, Tim Ripper Owens and Korey Clarke. I am sure that if the recording happens with all of those present, the Wolfmother boys will be beside themselves.

The full list of tracks and artists is as below:

  1. “Keep Yourself Alive” – Ellis Island

ARIA award nominations & roundup

October 7, 2007

Well it’s been a while since I posted news for a couple of reasons.  One is that the band is primarily in the studio so there’s not a whole lot going on, but I’ve also been busy with life and work recently.  So here’s the lowdown on recent happenings:

  1. Top of the newsworthy things to happen recently is the announcement that Wolfmother have been nominated for two ARIA awards this year, for best group and best single for Joker & The Thief.  Last year the band took home three awards so good luck to the boys again this year!  Shaking up the ceremony this year are dance act Sneaky Sound System with six nominations – against the gain of the usually rock dominated ARIAs.
  2. Wolfmother’s Joker & The Theif was featured in the recent movie Shoot ‘Em Up.  I didn’t realise until I was at the cinema watching the film!  Here’s a full list of movies that the band’s tracks have featured in (courtesy IMDB, link found by Justin)
