Tribute To Late Morphine Singer Going Online

Morphine, Marilyn Manson, Bruce Springsteen, Meatloaf, TLC, Aretha Franklin, Boondogs, Ramones, Beck, DMX ...

The surviving members of Morphine will post a song they recorded

as a tribute to late bandleader Mark Sandman for downloading at

three websites, saxophonist Dana Colley said Thursday (Dec. 9).

"Gone Against Gone," which Colley and drummer Billy Conway recorded

with former Presidents of the United States of America frontman

Chris Ballew under the name Movable Bubble, will be available

in Liquid Audio starting Tuesday (at www.morphine3.com, www.liquidaudio.com

and www.cdnow.com). It will cost $1.99, with proceeds going to the Mark

Sandman Music Education Fund. Ballew wrote the song the week Sandman died

of a heart attack in Italy in July and performed it at two memorial services

in Cambridge, Mass., later that month. Morphine are scheduled to release

their final studio album, The Night, on Feb. 1.
