Kevin Bacon on how his acting skills payoff when writing songs

From my interview with Kevin Bacon:

Does your acting ability help you when you are writing or performing a song?

Kevin: Yeah, I think so. I don’t know if it helps me, but I know that it’s what I use. You know what I mean? If I’m feeling like a song is not working or it’s not coming across, I have to think of it as kind of an acting exercise and get back in touch with what the song was about and what I was thinking about when I wrote it. And that’ll sort of reconnect me to the song and will actually make me sing it better.

One Response to Kevin Bacon on how his acting skills payoff when writing songs

  1. Did Bacon comment on how his choice of roles helps to inform his song writing? I ask becuase he is always playing a rapist, or thief, or hustler or some other kind of criminal.
