Gwen Stefani, Madonna, Reverend And The Makers, Glasvegas – Your music gossip stop
Welcome to the Daily Liggger: your morning stop-off to find out who in the world of music has been up to what.
Today’s top gossip:
Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly’s Sam Duckworth has got ‘Hollyoaks’ star Chris Fountain, aka Justin, to beatbox on his new album ‘Searching For The Hows And Whys’. The collaboration came about after Duckworth took part in a battle of the bands themed episode of the Channel 4 show. Duckworth said: “After filming we thought it would be fun to get everyone involved in the new album. I thought I should record a track in one of the ‘Hollyoaks’‘ family living rooms, so we set up in the McQueen’s house. That’s when I discovered ‘Justin Burton‘ was a wicked beatboxer. He has got a real talent.” (Daily Star)
