Rocker weighs in on Tom Cruise's 'Rock of Ages' performance.
In Rock of Ages, Tom Cruise belts several ’80s hits including Foreigner’s “I Want to Know What Love Is” — and the British-American rock band admits they were taken aback when they first heard the news.

“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.

Rock of Ages also stars Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta, Alec Baldwin and Russell Brand.
