Wilco, Radiohead members form Neil Finn charity group
Super group fever continues! Members of Wilco, Radiohead and The Smiths will be uniting with iconic singer-songwriter Neil Finn for a charity project named Seven Worlds Collide, a follow-up to Finn's 2002 live LP of the same title.
Smith's guitarist Johnny Marr, Radiohead's Ed O'Brien and Phil Selway, and Wilco's Jeff Tweedy, Pat Sansone, John Stirrat and Glenn Kotche will be saddling up with Finn in Auckland, New Zealand over the next few months for a series of studio sessions. KT Tunstall, Lisa Germano and Soul Coughing bassist Sebastian Steinberg are also expected to put in shifts.
Profits from the group will go to Oxfam. Since Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder is conspicously absent from this incarnation why not let give Lil Wayne 16 bars, since he's collaborating with everyone else anyway?
