Filter Guitarist Jams with Charlie Sheen and Snoop Dogg
Guitarist Rob Patterson (Filter, ex-Korn/OTEP) is reportedly collaborating with actor Charlie Sheen and rapper Snoop Dogg on a yet-to-be-titled song. The former 'Two and a Half Men' star took to his Twitter account to post the following message: "Warlock meets his makers-music makers that is @SnoopDogg @robpatterson666 get ready to rock the Sheenius within!" He later tweeted a Twitpic of the three men, with Patterson holding his guitar. There is no word on when or if this collaboration will see the light of day.
According to a recent interview with USMagazine.com, Patterson stated that he and Sheen had been friends for a few years after meeting through mutual friends. Apparently, Patterson had been giving one of Sheen's girlfriends, Natty Kiely, private guitar lessons. Through this connection, he has been writing music for Sheen and is reportedly taking part in the actor's upcoming My Violent Torpedo of Truth tour, slated to start April 2nd at the Fox Theatre in Detroit, Michigan.
In addition to any involvement with Sheen's tour, Patterson is still playing with Filter. The band's latest single, 'No Love,' is currently being pushed to rock radio, and a European tour is slated to begin in June.
