Platinum Weird is a musical collaboration formed in 2004 between Dave Stewart of Eurythmics and American singer/songwriter Kara DioGuardi.
It is also the subject of an elaborate hoax placing the band in 1974, including a half hour mockumentary produced for television network VH1
and a series of bogus World Wide Web fan sites and related false documents for the "lost" group. On their sole album to date, Make
Believe, DioGuardi performs as the fictional character Erin Grace.
