Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
All sorts of red flags usually go up when an actor announces he's ready for his close-up in the world of pop music. But where groundbreakers for lack of a better word like Don Johnson and Bruce Willis brought all their Hollywood scenery-chewing into the studio with 'em, actor Kevin Bacon Diner, JFK, Apollo 12 manages to create a distinct -- and generally pretty likable -- separate persona.

All sorts of red flags usually go up when an actor announces he's ready for his close-up in the world of pop music. But where groundbreakers for lack of a better word like Don Johnson and Bruce Willis brought all their Hollywood scenery-chewing into the studio with 'em, actor Kevin Bacon Diner, JFK, Apollo 12 manages to create a distinct -- and generally pretty likable -- separate persona. Abetted by brother Michael who has a day job scoring Tinseltown flicks, Bacon applies his acoustic guitar and agreeably rough-hewn vocals to a passel of ditties ranging from heartland rock "Grace" to adult-contemporary melodrama the swelling "She Is the Heart".
