See the New Cheap Trick Video for Bowie-Esque Single
April 7, 2016
Late last year, the band advanced its single “No Direction Home,” and then followed up with a video last month for second single “When I Wake Up Tomorrow.”
“This song always reminds me of a sultry David Bowie song,” Cheap Trick guitarist Rick Nielsen told Rolling Stone of the latter. “I liked it from the first time we attempted to do it. It’s just a moody, interesting piece with some heavy guitars in the middle. The last line is ‘Are you gonna be here when I wake up tomorrow,’ and then Bowie passed away after we recorded it.”
Cheap Trick bassist Tom Petersson has been rocking his custom-built Gretsch 12-string bass for a while, but even Nielsen gets in on the Gretsch action in this clip with a guitar signed by Monkees’ Micky Dolenz.
