Chris Connelly performing the music of David Bowie

Particularly on his solo material, the voice of Chris Connelly (Revolting Cocks, Ministry, etc) has always reminded me of David Bowie (Connelly spoke about the comparison in this interview). So it seemed fitting that he was performing Bowie’s music at a benefit for the Pablove Foundation. Under the name Songs of the Silent Age, Connelly was joined by Shirley Manson (Garbage), Matt Walker (Filter, Smashing Pumpkins, Morrissey) and others for a show in Chicago on January 11. Several videos from the show have surfaced; below is the group performing “Heroes.”
