82-year-old JOHN HETLINGER became an overnight sensation when he sang DROWNING POOL’s “Bodies” on “America’s Got Talent”. Don’t be surprised if the next place you see him is onstage WITH Drowning Pool.
Guitarist C.J. PIERCE says, quote, “I would love to have him come out onstage and sing a song with us . . . I didn’t realize our demographic is from 8-year-olds to 82-year-olds. That’s killer.”
He’s hoping to get John for the Open Air Festival in Chicago, from July 15th to the 17th . . . because he wants it to happen at a big venue.
He also wants to pick John’s brain, since he’s been a Navy pilot and an engineer on the Hubble Telescope. He says, quote, “I’m all about space and aliens. I’m sure he knows some stories. We got to get him a couple of drinks and get him to open up one of these X-files.”
