The Hoff Is Back!!!

August 19th, 2019

Just when you thought there was nothing else to listen to, the great David Hasselhoff is about to release a new covers album called "Open Your Eyes". OK...I have to admit, I'm very curious about this one. He's actually covering some of my favorite songs. I mean, the fact that he's covering the title track "Open Your Eyes" by Lords Of The New Church (who was fronted by Dead Boys singer Stiv Bators) got my attention. He's not only covering it, he's got James Williamson from The Stooges on it. Other guests and covers include The Cars guitarist Elliot Easton helping out on Jesus & The Mary Chain's "Head On", A Flock Of Seagulls on Echo & The Bunnymen's "Lips Like Sugar", but the most odd one has to be Ministry's Al Jourgenson doing Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline". At least I'll have a bunch of new songs for The Cover Of The Day.
