Hello Jesus.

Ed Robertson from Barenaked Ladies here. I’m an avid Giz reader. I think you guys should cover this really cool project I just did with Chris Hadfield. We wrote a song together, and then he recorded his parts ON THE ISS!!! He played along with a demo I’d made for him, and then we played Live in Toronto along with his performance from the ISS. It was all quite magical. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to drop me a line.

Cheers
Ed




About CJ

My parents told me I could be anything I wanted when I grew up. I chose to be a disappointment. I grew up in the small town of Shelton, WA. A child of ADHD and too much sugar I was always quick to make a joke and never short on things to say. After trying my hand in the real world and failing miserably I decided to see if anyone cared what loud noises came out of my mouth. The jury’s still out. Join me laughing at my own jokes on the weekends.
