Matt Groening is a rocker, he was a close friend of Frank Zappa, and a witness of Zappa’s last jam. Matt invited Frank to see the Tuvan throat singers at Cal Tech, Zappa could not attend the show as he was sick, but asked Matt Groening to invite them to his house after the show.
Zappa organized an evening of “conducted improvisations”, there were the Tuvans, Johnny “Guitar” Watson, the Chieftans (stones related) and L. Shankar, that was Zappa last jam, he was conducting but not playing, Matt was there.
According to Matt, Zappa told him he wished he could have controlled it a little bit more but it was quite an effort just for him to be present.
Between the many rocks acts that have been guests, all with original voices from the real artists, we have
Paul and Linda McCartney
Red Hot Chilli Peppers

Archive (snpp.com) counted references to the drug Ritalin, the Rolling Stones' song "Mother's Little Helper"
"Brother's Little Helper" spoofs the title of this Rolling Stones song appropriate, since the song was about using mood-altering prescription drugs to get through the day

Mick Jagger is clinging to
the things of youth with a
special appearance in The
Simpsons. His guest role
has been recorded for next
season, but insiders are
unwilling to reveal exactly
what will happen when the
wrinkly crooner makes his
appearance alongside Bart
and Homer et al.
58-year-old Mick's last
appearance on screen was
as a pimp, providing lonely
women with male companions in the The Man from Elysian
Fields. Now he'll be joining a long list of famous names who
have appeared in cameos with The Simpsons, including Sir
Paul McCartney, Bono and the rest of U2, and REM.
