For the last couple of weeks, Bon Jovi frontman Jon Bon Jovi has been teaming up on a daily basis with various performers and fans to sing his band’s song “Do What You Can” and this time, it was the turn of Collateral‘s frontman Angelo Tristan.
The following message was posted in part on Collateral‘s Facebook page earlier today (with slight edits):
“Jon Bon Jovi & Angelo Tristan perform Jon‘s brand new song ‘Do What You Can’. Jon asked singers / artists / bands to help write a 2nd verse for the uplifting song that talks about how the current pandemic is effecting us. Check out Angelo‘s inspiring verse that was written about the careworkers / nurses / paramedics that are all putting their lives on the frontline to save lives. Stay safe everyone.”
While appearing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on March 22nd, Jon Bon Jovi stated (as reported by nj.com): “These are trying times we’re going through, uncharted territory, the great unknown,” he said in a video at the time. “But one this is for sure: we’re going to make it through. Now, I did what I do best, which is to sit down with my guitar and try to put something to words for you, maybe to brighten up your day. Here’s my idea: we write this one together. I’m going to give you the chorus, I’m going to give you the first verse. I’m going to play the second verse, but you tell me your story. Tell me what you’re going through.”
UK rockers Collateral consisting of Tristan, guitarist Todd Winger, bassist Jack BentleySmith and drummer Ben Atkinson their self-titled debut full-length album on February 21, 2020.
