Hobbit Rock & Roll
Having conquered Mount Doom, Viggo Mortensen is at least ready to unleash a collaboration between Frodo and Buckethead. Mortensen, that hunky Aragorn from The Lord of the Rings, enlisted various Hobbits and the G n' R guitarist for Pandenmoniumfromamerica, a disc of experimental sounds and spoken word. "I do chipmunk voices," says Elijah Wood. Adds Mortensen, "I play a wheelchair and a motorcycle muffler." Will you need a bong rip before listening? "Not really," says Mortensen. Although, he admits, "You'll probably feel like you're stoned."
Childs o' Mine
Li'l G n' R's debut at CBGB's Gallery in New York was crowded, raucous and unspeakably cute. The five Jersey kids, ages five to eleven, blasted cuts from Appetite (and a little "Patience") karaoke-style. Even though they hit the stage at 6:30, the kids were already buzzed. "It's because we all have to be in bed by nine," said Li'l Izzy. "But that doesn't mean we don't like to party!" Debauchery ensued at a nearby pizza parlor.
