• The speculation on the new or mystery song first played in Buenos Aires and again in Montevideo continues apace. Most of the best insight can be found below the line in our post here. But the mainstream-ish music media has also picked up on it with The PRP picking up on a quote we previously posted from Mike Patton from his recent interview with Movieweb to explain the song as an unreleased song from the King for a Day… era – a point which has been brought up in our Comments.
    Also comments attributed to Roddy on the Faith No More Facebook page say: “the mystery song sounded way better in montevideo. sorry, BA, it was pretty much my fault. xo, RB (taking partial credit)”
  • And some more South American news we missed last week – Courtney Love speaking about her time in Faith No More to São Paulo newspaper Folha de S. Paulo. She said: “Roddy is one of my best friends. I was his last girlfriend before he turned gay. He is the godfather of my daughter Frances. He, Michael Stipe [REM] and Bono [U2]. I begged to join the band, like 1983, I would have been 18 years old and it was pretty crazy, put fire in their hair, cut myself on stage. He said he would make them famous. I was only the singer, they woudl not let me play guitar. I was just expelled from the group because they wanted to make Faith No More a male [machos in the original Spanish] band.”
