Leif Garrett's Band To Open Several Shows On Melvins Tour

Seventies heartthrob's group, Godspeed, will play with grunge rockers at seven stops.

Godspeed, a hard-rock band led by '70s pop heartthrob Leif Garrett, will open for seminal grunge-rockers the Melvins at seven shows of their upcoming U.S. tour.

Garrett also appears on the Melvins' latest album, The Crybaby, singing on a cover of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" (RealAudio excerpt).

The Crybaby, released March 7, also features appearances by former Faith No More singer Mike Patton, Jesus Lizard frontman David Yow and singer/songwriter Hank Williams III.

The Melvins released their first studio album, Gluey Porch Treatments, in 1987.

The band will tour throughout April and May without Godspeed.
