He is currently rumoured to be working on an album with Danger Mouse, with the album going by the working title of "Danger Horse".

Interesting Linkous fact; like Derek Zoolander, he is the first person in his entire family not to be a coal miner.

Linkous is known to use a mix of Epiphone Casino's and Fender Stratocaster's, as well as some other assorted Gibson and Fender models (as seen below). Amplifier wise, he favors VOX AC30's.
