I didn't so I was pleasantly surprised and he sings really good on some. My husband was watching the GAC music channel and his song video came on called Backyard here is a link that will give you a few videos of his.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4rMLVqMkng I love him as a actor..I have almost every movie he ever made know i have a new hobby...collecting his songs.. Have you ever heard him play? Do you think he is a good singer or should stick to acting? He and him and his band write most the songs they sing. Would you go listen to him sing if he was ever in your area?

I liked his singing on some songs but others I couldn't hear to much cause the music was louder then him. Here is a link that takes you to the same song we heard him sing on television, thanks for the response and if you can visit the link tell us what you think.

Learn something new every day!No didn't know that. But why not. Celebs do like to mix it up a bit. Keanu Reeves is in a band if I recall correctly. I haven't heard him. Will give it a look on youtube.

I actually had no idea that he did. I'm surprised that Kevin Costner sings and is a songwriter. I knew that, other than being an actor, he was also a director, but until now, I was clueless that he was a singer and songwriter.

Yes, he is one of many actors who seem to love singing in bands just as much as acting. I think it is cool they don't let anything get in there way. They might get made fun of in the press, but if they love what they do, then why not? Keanu Reeves and Kevin Bacon are two more actors who have a band and tour whenever they can. I have not heard any of them sing though myself.

Keanu Reeves played bass guitar in the grunge band Dogstar during the 1990s, and more recently in the band Becky But he doesn't really play to often since his work gets in the way alot. With Kevin Bacon I am not sure but i know he writes songs wherever he is even when he is taking breaks from filming movies. Johnny Depp is another one who plays and dings in a band.. I bet their are more then we realize out there.

I didnt know that he actually sang until a post on here a few weeks ago. I thought he was just an actor. Thanks for the link I will have to go and check him out. I think that he is a great actor and OMG he is hot. I am just not sure if I can see him as a singer or not.
