John, England writes:
Just seen this rather amusing article on RFT about Joel Madden from Good Charlotte. He was rehearsing in a studio next to Morrissey's band. Moz wasn't there and he asked the band if he could sing along to Suedehead and they duly obliged. Joel claimed "It was probably one of the coolest things I've ever done in my life"!
