Avant-garde rock pioneer MIKE PATTON has discovered an unlikely fan in diminutive Hollywood legend DANNY DeVITO, following a performance at this year's (05) COACHELLA MUSIC FESTIVAL in California.

A clearly buzzing DeVito - who is also a fan of Snow Patrol, Keane and goth legends BAUHAUS - couldn't conceal his deep admiration for the former FAITH NO MORE singer after hearing his band FANTOMAS' set.

He gushed to PAGESIX.COM, "Fantomas blew me away. They are super out of this world beyond! Mike Patton is a genius. You know he was in Faith No More and MR BUNGLE, right?

"Fantomas are experimental and just crazy."
