Illuminatus! the musical?

An amusing followup to yesterday's David Bowie discussion: My post generated some chatter on Twitter, and writer Ben Graham remarked, "As a personal OM project a couple of years back I was trying to push a story that in the late 70s Bowie had bought the film rights to Illuminatus! and was determined to make a musical version in which he played Hagbard Celine."

Somewhere I have an extended DJ mix someone made that is supposed to work as a sort of abstract adaptation of Illuminatus. I do not remember much about it, but I'm pretty sure it was 3 CD-Rs long, as befits a trilogy.
