The real band behind Joe Exotic’s country songs wants record deal after Netflix hit Tiger King

Fans of Netflix’s hit Tiger King might be surprised to hear that Joe ‘Exotic’ Maldonado-Passage didn’t really sing or play guitar on his country songs, but the real band now wants a record deal.

The Clinton Johnson Band’s Vince Johnson told TMZ on Sunday that he and his singer Danny Clinton ‘recorded three albums worth of songs’ before Clinton’s death from heart-related issues last October.

The Vancouver duo recorded around 20 big cat-themed songs for the 57-year-old former roadside zoo owner, who then pulled a Milli Vanilli and shot music videos of himself performing the tunes.

‘We cut a really good scene about that,’ Tiger King co-director Eric Goode told the Los Angeles Times on Thursday.

‘Joe even said, “Of course not every singer sings all his songs, that’s just how it’s done.” His take on it was funny – that you could be a musician and a singer and not sing.’

Goode and co-director Rebecca Chaikli’s successful seven-part series Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness continues to hold the No. 1 spot on Netflix’s Top 10 list since dropping March 20.

Tiger King scored a 97% Rotten Tomatoes rating and it’s the most tweeted about TV show in the States – amassing celeb fans like Cardi B, Jared Leto, Dax Shepard, Zach Braff, Sam Smith, Nathalie Emmanuel, Kim Kardashian West, Jax Taylor, Vinny Guadagnino, Taran Killam, and Spencer Pratt.
