Bass player improves White Stripes

Steven McDonald, former bass player from punk-pop band Redd Kross, bought the White Stripes album and found something missing -- namely, bass lines. So he added his own and posted the "improved" tracks to his web site. Gradually the uninvited bassist became more comfortable with his role, and his enhancements evolved from the missing bassline to edgy counterpoints and even additional vocals. Unfortunately, the MP3s are gone now, though various online felons are undoubtedly bootlegging them all across the digital underground. (via Techdirt)

The White Stripes are OK, though definitely not your cup of chai.
