AMERICAN actor David Hasselhoff – aka The Hoff – is set to record a charity single for Australian rock legend Doc Neeson when he arrives in Newcastle on Tuesday.
The Angels frontman Neeson was recently diagnosed with a brain tumour and is undergoing treatment to chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
After hearing about singer’s diagnosis, the star of Baywatch and Knight Rider offered to lend a hand in the form of a cover version of The Angels’ pub rock anthem Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again.
The song will be released on iTunes with all profits going to the Doc Neeson Support Fund and Support Act Ltd, a non-profit organisation set up to support members of the Australian music community in times of need.
The Hoff, 60, is enlisting the help of Choirboys frontman Mark Gable, The Angels drummer Buzz Bidstrip and guitarist Dave Leslie of Baby Animals for the recording which takes place at Lizotte’s Newcastle on Tuesday.
He will perform a sold out show at the venue later that night as part of his national An Evening With The Hoff tour.
