Foreigner Frontman: Tom Cruise Singing Our Music in ‘Rock of Ages’ Is ‘Bizarre’ (EXCLUSIVE)
“It’s a little bizarre having [Cruise] singing our music,” the band’s guitarist Mick Jones told Celebuzz.
“But whatever he does, he puts one hundred percent into it.”
In the film, Cruise, 49, plays fictitious character “Stacce Jaxx,” an aging rocker who is tasked with saving Hollywood nightspot Bourbon Room from closing down.
Although Cruise sought vocal training, the Foreigner guitarist had hoped he’d reach out to them.
“I was available, but he didn’t call,” Jones reveals.
But after watching the screening, Jones was pleased with how much heart and soul Cruise poured into the song.
“He’s great!” he added.
