Cannibal Corpse is a world-renowned band and you just never know where you end up, it could even be the Cher's house! Frontman George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher revealed the pleasant encounter he had with the pop icon.

Fisher met Cher through her son with Gregg Allman, Elijah, who performed in the nu-metal band Deadsy. Fisher recalled the story to Metal Hammer.

“Cher’s son Elijah, who is in the band Deadsy, is a big Cannibal Corpse fan and maybe 15 or 20 years ago he wanted us to come out to LA and play his birthday party at the Viper Room. His birthday is two days after mine, so my wife and I went out a few days early: ‘Let’s just fly out there, hang around for a few days, then we’ll play the show.’

“The day before the show, Elijah invited us up to Cher’s house. When we got there, she wasn’t there – she was out shopping. I was like, ‘Yeah, of course Cher’s out shopping.’ But I didn’t know that she came back. I was talking to Elijah, and my wife starts hitting me on the arm. I go, ‘What?’ And she just whispers: ‘Cher!’ I’m like, ‘Ok, that’s cool, but it’s not like meeting King Diamond or Chuck Billy’, cos I’m in awe of those guys.

“She was super-nice. We’re there and Cher is making food for us, and stuff. She came to the show as well. I apologized to her for having to listen to Cannibal Corpse, but she was, like, ‘No, I liked it.’ I’m, like, ‘Come on Cher, do the metal sign.’ And she goes, ‘Honey, I was metal before you were born.’ I’m, like, ‘Damn – I just got owned by Cher!’”

I am not a big Hollywood agent, but if I was, I would be on the phone pitching a Cher and Corpsegrinder variety show special to anybody who would listen.

Corpsegrinder is full of awesome stories, and he spent over and hour with us recently talking about everything and anything. It's definitely worth a watch/listen:

Cannibal Corpse just released a new single, "Murderous Rampage." Their new album, Violence Unimagined, is out on April 16. Get it here.
