Dean Jones, Singer


Like Shatner, Nimoy and other actors, well-known Disney star Dean Jones fancied himself a singer as well. The opening bellow of this first track reminds me faintly of Jim Morrison.

What do you all think of his talents in this arena?

It could've been worse. He might have gone into politics. I wouldn't have been surprised if he'd imitated Ronald Reagan.

Just in the way of singing, in the second song, his voice is quite good. He probably would never have made it well in the 'hip' styles of the day, but among people who were less interested in rock and roll, he might have made a decent career. I don't mind his voice at all...just a little too cultured for a lot of the music coming out at that time.

He'll always be the friend of Herbie.

Not my style, but I've heard worse. Much worse. Didn't he sing on the stage as well?
