Macy Gray covers Radiohead at LA film premiere
Macy Gray covered Radiohead's 'Creep' at the Los Angeles premiere of the music documentary film 'The Heart Is A Drum Machine' on Saturday (April 25).

The singer was backed by former Guns N' Roses drummer Matt Sorum and The Cult's Billy Morrison on guitar while performing a heart-felt rendition of the song as part of the event celebrating the release of the film, which features several musicians including Flaming Lips' frontman Wayne Coyne, MGMT's Andrew VanWyngarden and Red Hot Chili Peppers' guitarist John Frusciante discussing the relationship between humanity and music.

Jane's Addiction frontman Perry Farrell also performed with the Guns N' Roses and Cult men on a cover of The Rolling Stones' 'Sympathy For The Devil' following the screening, which took place at the Ricardo Montalban Theatre in Hollywood as part of the LA Weekly's LA Weekend series of cultural events.

Juliette Lewis also performed a couple of original tracks at the event backed by Sorum and Morrison, who make cameo appearances in the film.
