    What I take away from this article is that I now know there is an artist out there called "Jack Shit".
    blah blah courtney love... hows about that Tom Waits and Iggy though, with a side of Marianne Faithful?? definitely checking this out
    Considering Stipe's known friendship with Kurt, I can't say this is surprising news. However, this album seems interesting and 'til know I never heard about it.
    How about just giving Courtney the money she wants for heroin, and thereby just leave Michael alone to do a great song, without a **** squealing next to him?
