Bruce Willis & John Mayer Sing the Blues at Benefit Show
PAGE SIX — Bruce Willis and John Mayer sang the blues at the Jazz Foundation of America’s annual benefit concert, which honored two legendary pianists, Dr. John and McCoy Tyner.
Willis took a break from filming a remake of the Charles Bronson vigilante movie “Death Wish” to appear at Thursday night’s concert at New York’s Apollo Theater.
The actor played harmonica as he backed up 91-year-old pianist and singer Henry Gray, a Louisiana native who became a major figure on the Chicago blues scene with Howlin’ Wolf’s band. Willis then belted out the blues himself on “She’ll Be So Fine” with a band that included “Blues Brothers” saxophonist Lou Marini.
