On 22 November 2009, Andrew Stockdale performed with ex-Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver guitarist Slash at a benefit concert at the Avalon, Hollywood, California. Andy performed one song, “By the Sword”, with a band dubbed “Slash & Friends” (named after the guitarist’s upcoming debut solo album, on which the song is slated to appear) comprising Andrew on vocals, Slash and Dave Navarro on guitar, Chris Chaney on bass and Travis Barker on drums.

Update: Incidentally, Slash has reported on his Twitter page that he is to be “Jamming with Andrew Stockdale tonight at the Wiltern Theater.” Perhaps this could lead to future collaborations? Ensue fan excitement…

Now that the hype of the long-awaited release of Cosmic Egg has had time to calm down, it is about time we took a look at how the album has performed around the world!
In the band’s native Australia, Cosmic Egg reached #3 in the ARIA Albums Chart, exactly the same position as the debut self-titled album. A respectable position, Wolfmother were beaten to the top spot only by Michael Jackson’s This Is It, an album which needs no hype, and Michael Buble’s extremely successful Crazy Love.
Other highlights include top-20 finishes in Austria, Germany (both #11), the Netherlands (#14), Norway (#15) and the United States (#16). Disappointments were minor, but include the UK Albums Chart position of #35, not only a relatively poor performance but also a drop of 10 positions on Wolfmother. Check out the full list of chart positions below! (First number is Cosmic Egg position, second number is self-titled position; bold countries are improvements in position.) [Read more]
