Mike Patton of FAITH NO MORE joined former SEPULTURA members Max Cavalera (guitar, vocals) and Igor Cavalera (drums) on stage Friday night (March 3) at Slim's in San Francisco, California to perform the SEPULTURA song "Lookaway". Fan-filmed video footage of his appearance can be seen below.
Max and Igor are at the tail end of the second leg of the "Return To Roots" North American tour during which they are celebrating the twentieth anniversary of SEPULTURA's classic album "Roots" by performing the LP in its entirety.
The studio version of "Lookaway" featured Patton as a guest, along with KORN's Jonathan Davis.
During an interview with ARTISTdirect, Max recalled working with Patton and Davis on the "Lookaway" sessions. He said: "Mike Patton was on the song, and Jonathan's a huge FAITH NO MORE fan. He was actually freaking out that Patton was there. He was really nervous, which was actually kind of funny. He kept chewing on his hair the whole time he was in the studio. Ross Robinson teased him at one point and told him to calm down. [Laughs]"
He continued: "'Lookaway' came out of a jam. It's a really heavy riff. Patton started singing this Indian chant, and it gave me goosebumps in the studio when he did that. It was so intense. He showed up in the studio with a Samsonite briefcase. I was like, 'Mike, what's up with the briefcase?' He said, 'It's what I need to record.' It had an echo pedal inside for his voice and a bottle of wine. He opened the wine and we drank it. At one point, the three of us were on the floor of the studio going crazy and making weird noises and sounds! Jonathan took it to another level. He's singing about people with a fear of pussy, which is a crazy concept. It came out as a really cool, obscure song on 'Roots'."
"Roots" was certified gold in 2005 by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) for U.S. shipments in excess of 500,000 copies.
