Mel Brooks may be best known for directing comedic films. But he has also composed a number of ditties–some of which will appear on a tribute album, according to the April 1, 2005 Times.

His son, Ed, who manages a New York-area pop band Early Edison, is putting together the project. So far, Elton, U2 and Madonna are expected to participate.

But Ed cautions that it’s far too early to release additional details.
