(Gibson) Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne recently talked about the wide variety of collaborators the band have been working with. The Oklahoma rockers are putting out new music on a USB stick ensconced in a gummy skull.

"You know, you come in with this half-baked, caffeinated idea, and, if you're lucky, there are some other people around that are making records at the same time," he told Spinner.com. "So for our last record, we got a hold of Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and MGMT, you just never know ... the serendipity that's going to come."

In terms of future collaborations, the Lips are aiming to work with a rock legend. "I was talking about Jimmy Page from Led Zeppelin to do one of these tracks with us, and, you know, if he's not available next month then we'll keep trying, maybe the next month or maybe six months," Coyne said. "Because I have this lax timetable I'm working with, I feel like anybody that's interested in doing something, we should be able to do it with them. more on this story
