Singer's Arrest Reunites Village People to Record Prison Disco Song
DALY CITY, Calif. - Victor Edward Willis, the policeman in the '70s disco group the Village People, was arrested by real police who allegedly found a gun and drugs in the former star's convertible, authorities said. Word of Willis;s arrest spread to the other former members of the group, who quickly decided to reunite and embark on a concert tour to benefit their fallen bandmate. The band's new disco-style dance song, currently being written and choreographed under the working title "(Get Up In That) Behind Bars" in order to support the tour, promises the same upbeat gregarious group-dance-conducive rhythm that made the Village People famous. "We had to do this," said the Indian Chief. "Without Victor, the Village People were a SoHo novelty act at best. He was a tireless driving force behind the band and a special kind of friend." "Besides, we'd already done 'In the Navy' and 'YMCA' - a prison song is natch," said Leather Fetish Motorcycle Guy. "'Behind Bars' will complete our awkward gay-sex-experimentation-source hat trick."
