Cult rocker BLACK FRANCIS is still haunted by the memory of his recent visit to the home of tragic artist HERMAN BROOD - because the house has remained exactly the same as it was when the Dutchman died in 2001. The former Pixies frontman - also known as Frank Black - was invited to his idol's Amsterdam home in Holland after Brood committed suicide in the U.S. six years ago. And Francis, 42, discovered they shared more than just their love of music. He says, "The visit became very odd. 'Here is the medicine for his crabs. Here's where he would paint. Here's where he would shoot speed and listen to the Pixies!' "And there's the (Pixies) record sitting right there. It was like, 'F**k!', very intense. Then I discovered he wore the same cologne as me!"
