This episode pays tribute to 82 multi-talented actors and actresses who also had hit records. Our honorees in this podcast all played a role on the rock, pop, country, or bluegrass hit music charts after they made their names in Hollywood movies and TV shows.
Some of them could sing as well or maybe even better than they could act. Others just thought they could carry a tune, but were so delightfully wrong, wrong, wrong! Our cast of actors who also rocked includes movie and television tough guys, lovely leading ladies, precocious adolescents, talented teens, and comedians who could seriously sing. And we’ll identify the first actor to become a rock and roll superstar.
Our resident “Rare & Scratchy Rock ‘N Roll” rockologist, Ken Deutsch will be along to explain how we came up with our list and also award some honorable mentions to selected actors and actresses who didn’t make our final cut.
