The OCMD Cribs: Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips

The Flaming Lips covering Pink Floyd’s  “On the Run” (feat Henry Rollins) –

Welcome to the first edition of The OCMD Cribs – an inside look at the weird and eccentric lives of our favorite indie rock stars.  And who better to fit that bill than Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips. He’s been in good form lately, caught on Google Street Maps in a bathtub in his front lawn recently.  And now the unveiling of his renovated Gaudi-esque, psychedelic compound in Oklahoma, as reported by Gizmodo (via @epicureanzealot). I can just picture Wayne lounging in his signature white three piece suit here, can’t you? For more pics of the project, visit Fitzsimmons Architects.

Most rock stars fall into the ‘eccentric’ category and all seem to get more so with age.  The great thing about Wayne is he get crazier in an endearing and playful way.  The rest of them just get weirder and creepier.  Prince? Weird.  Michael Jackson? Creepy.  You get my drift.  Anyway, I’m kinda liking this thread.  Look for more in the future.
