This news has been floating around for a while, but one-time Minutemen bassist (and current member of the reunited Stooges) Mike Watt recently played on six songs for the next Kelly Clarkson album. In a Pitchfork story Watt explained that he’s old friends with producer David Kahne, who asked him to contribute to the sessions. I was particularly amused by this new twist from a January 6 Reuters/Billboard story, where Watt admits that he knew virtually nothing about the singer: "I heard that Kelly won some game show, but I was really impressed how she sang her ass off.”
