So uncool that he’s cool – maybe David Hasselhoff is just a genuine fan of the good stuff. He’s run with the joke for years and all the time has been sneaking the good stuff into the mainstream. His latest wheeze is covering the Mary Chain classic ‘Head On’
Of course it’s ridiculous but it’s also cool.
His new album, Open Your Eyes, is out this week and brilliantly and preposterously celebrates the fall of the Berlin Wall which he was part of with his famous concert there. The album’s title track also features ex Stooges guitar legend James Williamson – all these worlds are colliding and it makes sense!
