Tom Cruise's 'Rock Of Ages' Vocals Impressed Def Leppard
The band freely admit that their ears pricked up (and possibly, the sound of cash registers started ringing) when they learned that Tom Cruise, Catherine Zeta Jones and Russell Brand were going to be starring in the film. "You could say with hindsight that we didn't make a wrong decision, we just made a decision. We revisited that decision when they threw out the idea of the film to us because they mentioned people like Tom Cruise," Joe Elliott told San Francisco Chronicle.
So what do the band think of Tom Cruise's interpretation of the song? They met Cruise on set and apparently, the Hollywood star was a little put out at first, that they were there at all, but eventually sat down and had a chat with them about his singing, revealing that he had only been singing for a few months, "just a couple of hours a day." The band were impressed: "He had other movies he was shooting," explained Elliott, "so it was like a part-time thing. I'm thinking, "Wow. If he's got that good in four or five months, that's much better than half the people on some of these talent shows."
