Singer songwriter responds to wrestler's wish to collaborate on a song
Frank Turner has said that wants to duet with WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan.
Turner was responding to a recent comment by the wrestler saying he’d like to work with him.
After hearing the news, Turner tweeted Bryan saying: “I’m game!”
In an interview with Digital Spy, the wrestler, who previously collaborated with The Moldy Peaches Kimya Dawson on ‘Captain Lou’, said: “I love Frank Turner, an English guy. I would like to do something with him. There’s something about his music. I suppose there’s a lot in common with independent musicians and wrestlers. How much he’s on the road, all that kind of stuff.
“His music really speaks to me, I identify with it. If I could do something with him, that would be awesome. It’s crazy to see how popular he’s become. I was at the gym maybe a month ago and I heard a Frank Turner song. I was like, ‘Whoah!’ I’m so out of tune with pop culture, I didn’t even realise that he had become big! It was like, this is my guy, and he’s playing at the gym! This is strange.”
Another wrestler, Wade Barrett said last year that he would talk to people in the music department of the WWE to see if he could take up Manic Street Preachers on their offer to write his new theme music.
