This is a no-brainer! Reeve Carney, star of Spider-Man on Broadway and lead singer of the band Carney, has been cast as Jeff Buckley in the “official” bio-pic about the singer’s life. As a big fan of Jeff Buckley’s music, I was dreading the prospect of a movie because the names being thrown around that were in consideration to play Jeff are not singers. I am happy that if a movie has to be made, Reeve Carney who can both sing and act will be in it. It helps that he looks and sounds a lot like Jeff and from what I’ve heard so far, he’ll sing the songs so I am very excited about that.
Not so long ago, I saw Carney perform and Reeve performed two songs by two different legends – Queen and The Beatles! Coincidentally, the banter before the song is something you’d hear at a Jeff Buckley concert so I am excited for the film. Don’t let me down like you usually do Hollywood!
And now, enjoy seeing Reeve Carney sing “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen followed by “I Want You (She’s So Heavy)” by The Beatles.
Are you familiar with Carney? Of course if you read this site, you’re already in the know (and you’re welcome!) If you do not know the music of Carney, today is your lucky day. This band is great! When lead singer Reeve Carney has a day off from being the lead in Spider-Man Turn Off The Dark on Broadway, he moonlights in his rock and roll band with his brother Zane. They are great performers and if you like what you are about to watch (which you will), you should definitely pick up Carney’s album “Mr. Green, Volume 1.”
Carney is extra awesome because as you are about to see, they tackle covering two of the greatest songs of all time, “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “I Want You (She’s So Heavy),” by two of the greatest bands of all time – Queen and The Beatles. Their versions of both songs are fantastic! After seeing this video, you’ll agree that when Carney play in your town, they should not be missed under any circumstance.
