Rob Thomas admits 'ripping off' electric guitar riff
The Matchbox Twenty frontman, who is currently promoting his second solo album, recently joined the surviving members of the band to add vocals to a version of one of their old tracks.
But the musical link between the two acts apparently extends further, as Thomas has admitted to borrowing the electric guitar riff from INXS's Need You Tonight on his latest record.
"I told them right up front 'I want to say that I hope you guys don't mind I completely tried to rip you off'," he told the Daily Telegraph.
The track in question - Give Me The Meltdown - appears on his new album Cradlesong.
Thomas' collaboration with INXS is not the first time he has worked with other artists, as he famously worked with electric guitar legend Carlos Santana on the hit record Smooth.Posted on 28 Jul 2009 13:00 to category : Band / Celebrity News
