Former EVANESCENCE Guitarist To Collaborate With 'American Idol' Winner

In addition to writing material for Avril Lavigne's new CD, former EVANESCENCE guitarist Ben Moody is collaborating with "American Idol" winner Kelly Clarkson on tracks for her second album.

"It's cool because [Kelly] wants to do some branching out, and I'm doing nothing but branching out," Moody told "We got together and she had all these songs in mind of what she wanted to do. It's just a really, really cool process for me, because everybody is a new experience. Everybody works differently."

Moody has also been working with GODHEAD singer Jason Miller, new DROWNING POOL singer Jason Jones and LIVING SACRIFICE drummer Lance Garvin on the track "The End Has Come", slated for the soundtrack to the upcoming comic-book flick "The Punisher".

Besides writing material for a possible solo album, Moody also has also written for "Resident Evil: Apocalypse" and has been assisting the film's music supervisor in compiling the soundtrack.

"I'm writing more now than I ever have before in my life," Moody said. "This is the most prolific time I've ever known, and the most freedom I've ever had before."
