My sister-in-law and her husband got me Raisisng Sand for my birthday the other day. It is without a doubt a great album.
On the other hand, I got thinking about the odd duo of Robert Plant and Allison Kraus, and I wondered who else T Bone Burnette might get to pair doing what kind of music, so here is a partial list to help him out:
- Marilyn Manson and Jessye Norman sing Rogers and Hammerstein
- Maynard James Keenan (Tool) and Dolly Parton sing Puccinni arias
- Brian Johnson (AC-DC) and Jessica Simpson do the hymns of Charles Wesley
- Shania Twain and Tom Arraya (Slayer) sing the best of Yes
. . . and finally. . .
- Lemmy (Motorhead) and Deborah Harry do a Christmas album.
