Microsoft founder cuts a waxing

Posted by a staff writer

No one can say that Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen has not done a lot with his life. He has been a philanthropist, inventor, investor, cancer survivor and author.

Yesterday he tweeted that he is going to become a recording artist and put out an album.

Allen shared the Amazon link  to his first album on twitter.  Apparenly he recorded the disk  alongside his band, the Underthinkers.

The album contains 13 tracks, "Everything at Once" features celebrity guests including Joe Walsh, Derek Trucks, Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart, Chrissie Hynde, David Hidalgo of Los Lobos and Ivan Neville.

Every song on the album is either written or co-written by Allen himself. He said that he will not make any money from the project. He's not looking to add to his great fortune with the proceeds; all of the money that the album makes is being donated to the EMP technology museum.

You can order the album now, but it will actually be released in August.
