Musical Interlude: Hero (1993)

From David Crosby's 1993 solo record, "A Thousand Roads", comes "Hero", a duet with Phil Collins, not to be confused with subsequent hits by the same name recorded by Mariah Carey and the team of Chad Kroeger (Nickelback) & Josey Scott (Saliva)(theirs was for 2002's "Spider-Man").

Crosby plays a convict who gets a visit from his wife & son, with flashbacks showing the father & son at play, interspersed with Crosby & Collins in a darkened studio. The two had previously acted together 2 years earlier in "Hook", but never appeared together on screen (Crosby played a pirate, Collins a cop).

Directed by actor Sean Penn. Whodathunk?
