Collaborations Abound in Rock World

Two elder statesmen of rock announced collaborations with decidedly younger (than them) musicians this week. Dave Sitek, producer and guitarist for TV on the Radio, has officially joined '90s rock mainstays Jane's Addiction as the band's bassist. Sitek, now a member of the band's "creative team," will be performing on and writing for the act's forthcoming, in-progress album. In addition, Robbie Robertson of rock pioneers The Band announced an upcoming collaboration with Trent Reznor and Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello. Robertson will be releasing an album in April titled "How to Become Clairvoyant," and the record -- his first in 13 years -- will include contributions from Reznor and Morello. ( L.A.
