Another Reason Why Mike Patton is one of
the Coolest Humans Alive

Mike Patton, most famously of Faith No More, is one of the most prolific artists of our generation and certainly one of the most interesting. In addition to being the lead singer of Faith No More, Patton has been a member of Mr. Bungle, Tomahawk, Lovage, Fantômas, The Dillinger Escape Plan, and Peeping Tom. Not only that but he's worked/collaborated with Dan the Automator, The Melvins, Odd Nosdam, Amon Tobin, Sepultura, Kool Keith, The X-Ecutioners, Team Sleep, Handsome Boy Modeling School, Björk, Subtle, Melt-Banana, Rahzel, and Kaada. I'm especially fond of his work with Lovage.

Patton continues to show the range of his genius with his newest project, Mondo Cane, which is comprised of Patton singing Italian pop songs. Really. It's pretty great too, here are a couple of videos of him performing with the Metropole Orchestra in Amsterdam. You can watch the whole thing HERE.
