David Hasselhoff says the death of Jimi Jamison, the lead singer of rock group Survivor and the voice of the Baywatch theme tune, has upset him “horribly”.
Speaking in London to promote his new UKTV comedy Hoff the Record, Hasselhoff told RadioTimes.com that he eerily heard about the singer’s death right after performing the theme tune himself on stage during his Celebrate the 80s and 90s with the Hoff! Tour.
Hasselhoff told us: “It totally freaked me out. I get an email, and I had just got off stage singing my version of the Baywatch theme song.
“It just upset me horribly because he is my all time favourite singer and because of that theme song, I have never had a chance to thank him, so I felt terrible. When I heard the Baywatch theme tune again today it just hit me again. I will sit down and have a think and see what I can to live his legacy and move on.
“He was only a year older than me so it’s also kind of scary.”
