Darryl Worley is best known for the hit post-9/11 song "Have You Forgotten." I wonder how his mostly conservative, Southern fan base will feel about this.
Check out the before and after.... and he's 42 as well. Damn!
Worley reveals much for July issue of 'Playgirl'
Darryl Worley is best known for the hit "Have You Forgotten," and he's taken a bold step to make sure he won't be forgotten: posing nude in Playgirl's July issue.
While there's no full frontal nudity, there are several shots of his backside, says a magazine spokeswoman. Darryl jokes with his friends, "That was something I did before I stopped drinking."
But he actually agreed to the shoot in an attempt to change his image.
"I always work real hard to keep myself in pretty decent shape," says the 6-foot-6-inch Darryl. "I'm not ashamed of how I look. We've never really done anything that far out on the edge, and I thought this might be a cool opportunity to stir it up a little bit.
"We've been trying to change people's perception of me for a couple of years now. Just because of a couple of hits, I got in a groove where people thought of me as a clean, pristine, All-American perfect guy, and that's not who I am. As it says in my new single, "People say he's a crazy son of a gun.'
"I am not a nut bag. I live a little bit out there on the edge, and most people who know me know that. I thought this might help chance that perception a little bit."
He also thought it would generate publicity that would keep him in the public eye until he negotiates a new record deal. (His former label recently folded, but he owns the masters to his last album.)
"I've been waiting for this big rash of phone calls," he says about the media interest. "I'm 42 years old; I feel pretty good about myself. For the first time in my life, I'm getting control of myself and feeling comfortable with who I am inside and out.
"It might be the craziest thing I've ever done, but I don't think it will hurt me. The phones are ringing." SOURCE
