Watchmen's Alan Moore in a Rock Opera
Let's see how random this headline can be... "Watchmen's" Alan Moore is in a musical project. A rock and roll opera. A rock and roll opera written by members of the fictional band Gorillaz. Yeah... That works.
Comic book author and legend, Alan Moore (Watchmen, V for Vendetta), is teaming up with Damon Albarn (Blur, Gorillaz) and Jamie Hewlett (Tank Girl, Gorillaz) to help write the libretto for their next rock opera.
Albarn and Hewlett wrote their first opera, Monkey: Journey to the West based on the 16th century Chinese novel, Journey to the West. However, very little has been released on this latest musical endeavor, other than the title, Carousel.
Moore has also expressed interest in Gorillaz being a guest in his latest work, Dodgem Logic.
Needless to say, a random, yet amazing grouping of talent. I am a huge fan of both Gorillaz and Alan Moore, and for me, this team-up is huge!
