Welcome to the Daily Gossip: your daily stop-off to find out who in the world of music has been up to what.
Today’s top gossip:
Slash is heading into the studio with ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ stars Escala. The former Guns N’ Roses axeman has recruited the classical quintet to help him record a cover of Led Zeppelin‘s classic ‘Kashmir’. The two parties met after Slash and Simon Cowell (who manages Escala) drank together at a party hosted by Elton John recently (The Sun).
From the papers:
Mick Jones has revealed that a gold disc presented to The Clash in their heyday was actually a recycled ABBA LP. “I didn’t know you could play gold discs,” he explained. “But we put it on and it was just an album by ABBA. They just sprayed it gold, put a label on it” (Daily Mirror).
The Edge has annoyed his Malibu neighbours after revealing plans to build a 1,000-acre development of private homes (The Sun).
