That's Graham Chapman doing the spoken intro to 'Alexander the great'? Haha that's crazy. I remember getting the surprise of my life when I just happened to catch the video for 'Can I play with madness' and seeing him there, great collaborations.

Whoa. That Dee Snider record is a treasure trove of non-metal weirdness.

Cases in point:

https://www.metal-archives.com/artists/Bebe_Neuwirth/417779

Cheers was a watershed TV show, but to see Bebe Neuwirth listed here is utterly bizarre.

https://www.metal-archives.com/artists/Patti_LuPone/417815

I’m not a fan of musical theater, but Patti LuPone is an absolute badass. Known not only for her performative skill, but for being so outspoken to the point where she will stop a show to admonish unruly audience members for various reasons (mainly for flash photography). Legend.

These two make sense as guests on a Broadway themed album, even if it’s an unusual collaborator in Dee Snider of all people.

More Canadian stuff..

Julie Doiron (https://www.metal-archives.com/artists/ ... ron/536289) may have started her solo career playing dark chords on a bass guitar, but she eventually became this versatile artist alternating between various solo and collaborative projects (acoustic, bluegrass, rock, post-rock). Her most gentle and mainstream moment was around 2004, with 'Snow falls in November'. In concert she has (or at least used to have) this naive, coffee shop artist / Phoebe Buffay manner about her.. which is not really what you'd associate with metal. Though she did some heavy stuff eventually, on the post-rock side (with The Wrong Guys).

It's no coincidence that she's on the Archives; she used to be a part of Eric's Trip, a noisy and heavy band injustly remembered sometimes as being the first or only Canadian band on Sub Pop Records before grunge broke big, and associated with the 'new Seattle' tag that encompassed Halifax and I guess everything within a 300 km radius. Or even more unfairly, because they are mentioned in a Tragically Hip song.

Their drummer Mark Gaudet (https://www.metal-archives.com/artists/Shithammer/4873) ended up playing in a few black metal projects around Moncton and Julie happened to take a photo that he used in an album sleeve, which resulted in her inclusion.

As for her former bandmate Rick White (https://www.metal-archives.com/artists/ ... ite/879551), he's much into doom and psychedelic rock. The band he, Mark and Tara formed after Eric's Trip, Elevator (to/through Hell) was quite doomy and Sabbathy at times, with a Syd Barett influence. Rick ended up on the Archives because he helped a metal band from Moncton recording a demo in 1991 with Tara doing the cover art.

All 3 of them (Tara, Mark, Rick) are now on the Archives, and so are most of Eric's Trip (Julie, Mark, Rick), though Elevator and Eric's Trip are not metal bands.

Elton John's on here for playing on an Ozzy Osbourne song and an Alice in Chains song. I didn't know he played on an Alice in Chains song until I looked at his page just now.

A great song on a great album, moreover. It may be a profane statement but I've replayed Black Gives Way to Blue way more times than Dirt. The downsides of not having grown up with this kind of music I guess...

So I got looking at Ozzy's Prince of Darkness compilation, as one of the discs contains some collaborations he'd done over the years. We've got some more rappers like DMX members of Wu-Tang Clan on here, but also, Miss Piggy from The Muppets (no picture though).

Good catch, because it had to be removed, characters aren't eligible as actual artists to be credited :oh shit:

Wouldn't it make more sense if the credit remained, but as an alias for Frank Oz who was the guy voicing the character at the time?

Elton John also played piano on a song from one of those late eighties Saxon albums, he pops up in fascinating places.

Not sure if mentioned already / but Kenny G playing on Imperial Triumphant has to count.

Also, Madonna covered New Level by Pantera live in 2007-2008 - enough to get her a spot?

Seconding this. Bring Frank Oz to the Archives!

As far as I know, she just included the main riff to one of her own songs, so hardly a cover, let alone worthy of an artist page...

There's no shame in it; it's a great album. Musically very consistent with Layne-era Alice in Chains, and it closes with one of the most emotionally heavy-hitting songs they've ever done.

I prefer "Dirt" which is a landmark album, IMO, but "Black Gives Way" is not far behind. Amazing comeback album.

Woah. Didn't know that one, either. Agreed - Max is outstanding. One of the best of all time.

This is quite silly, like that parrot in that other band. These animals aren't performing, they don't know they are participating in artistic process and have no agency over it, so it would be much more sensible to credit it as sampling.

Yeah, that Soulfly album really fucked us up. So many nu-metal artists that wouldn't be here.

Surprised to find Kid Rock has a page. When I saw I thought maybe a song or show he played with Metallica was here, but it's because he produced and played turntables on a release by Harms Way in the mid 90s.

Xzibit is also on here, having guested on a Within Temptation album.


I was going to mention Xzibit until I saw this. Grant Kirkhope, the guy that did music for Goldeneye 007 and Perfect Dark has a page and played in a metal band? No wonder I like the music in Perfect Dark so much!

Listening to her own recordings it would be very surprising to find her here, since it's mostly dreamy, ethereal folk music, with an Americana tinge. But it's a bit darker than your average folk artist, she writes a lot of murder ballads and true crime tales, has done covers of Black Sabbath, Metallica and others, has done Youtube collaborations with members of Converge, Mutoid Man, Earth, and others, an even darker album with Stephen Brodsky, and a few backing vocals for an old Xasthur album, which is what gave her a page here.

When I first saw the song titles on Number of the Beak, I was instantly infatuated. I mean, Beak of Putrefaction? BIRDSEEDS OF VENGEANCE?!?!?!?! More metal than most humans can pull off.

And one of the dudes who is in Hatebeak and taught Waldo to scream and growl is also in Pig Destroyer, which is pretty sick.

Maybe Pig Destroyer will release a darkwave EP soon, who knows? It just says that he does synths in his bio on the site.

Adding to the latter, I'm now finding out a lot more non-metal guests on that Iommi album - go check out for yourself, but they include Serj Tankian, Brian May, Henry Rollins, Billy Idol, Skin, and more.

Brian May also guested on Sabbath's Headless Cross. Unsurprising given that he and Iommi are great friends.

It also says that he does samples, too, which have been an increasing presence in Pig Destroyer's later releases. I would assume he's handling all those.

Seems like a pretty insignificant position if you ask me. A full band member? Just to play a few samples? It'd be better to just get the sound guy to trigger them or run them as backing tracks along with the metronome (if they play to a metronome).
