Drowning Pool To Perform With 82-Year-Old America's Got Talent Star

Drowning Pool

(TeamRock Radio) Drowning Pool fan John Hetlinger, 82, who sang the band's trademark track Bodies on America's Got Talent, will guest with the band this week. Hetlinger's game show performance went viral after the retired US Navy pilot - who also worked on the Hubble space telescope repair program - indulged his love for the band on TV. Over 8.3 million people have viewed the clip to date.

Now Drowning Pool, who last month said they wanted to tie up with him, have confirmed he'll take part in their performance at Chicago Open Air on July 15 at 2pm.

Hetlinger says: "I'm really amped-up. We're going to have a blast together - let the bodies hit the floor!" Drummer Mike Luce adds: "On rare occasions servicemen have joined us on stage. But we've never shared the stage with an 82-year-old veteran, crushing Bodies. It's going to be crazy throwing down with him!"

Guitarist CJ Pierce's father-in-law served in the navy, bassist Stevie Benton's dad is a veteran of Vietnam, and Luce's brother currently serves. Watch Hetlinger's performance here.
