Though nothing, nothing will keep us together… We can beat them, forever and ever… Oh, we can be heroes… Just for one day.” ♪
press conference for “Sweeney Todd” in London, 11 years ago in 2008, Johnny was asked if he based his singing voice on any person in particular once he sounded a bit like David Bowie, and he answered:
“A couple of people have said that, which is interesting because I wouldn’t ever dream of attempting to channel David Bowie. He’s a big hero of mine. If there’s a similarity it wasn’t intentional. And it’s a nice compliment.”
10 years later, last year,
in May 17, Johnny surprised everybody, singing live for the first time on stage,
on the Hansa Studios, in Berlin, same studio where Bowie recorded his masterpiece. Johnny recorded his cover when the “Hollywood Vampires 2018 Tour” stopped in Germany, and is set to be released on the upcoming “Hollywood Vampires” second album, along new songs with Johnny singing.
