"I thought, what if Billie Joe was gay, and he jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge for bullying?" Barnes says. He wrote his song a year ago, and after several fits and starts, he and his band, the Bad News Barnes, recorded it with Dana Fuchs, who played Sadie in the 2007 film Across the Universe. In May, Barnes took advantage of his bar's Hell's Kitchen location and set up a spot to record a music video during the Ninth Avenue Avenue International Food Festival, featuring himself, Fuchs, and Felicia Collins from the Late Show band.
In addition to his bar and music, Chris is a fantastic improvisational comedian and a good friend to have.
