Ricky Gervais is a man on a mission. After seeing his own musical dreams go up in smoke back in the '80s, when the failure of his little-known New Wave group Seona Dancing thrust him towards comedy, Gervais wants to make the musical dreams of his fictional character David Brent (from the UK version of The Office) a reality.
Ricky Gervais' last musical endeavor, the '80s New Wave band Seona Dancing.
That means playing rock shows with Brent's band Foregone Conclusion. No, that's not a joke. You can really go see Gervais in London playing David Brent fronting a rock band. That got me to thinking, though. While I'd rather hear Gervais tell jokes than sing, I came up with a few fictional musicians I'd actually like to see onstage.
