James Franco’s “Can’t Say Goodbye” Music Video Featuring Childhood Footage


By Michael Lewittes



Hollywood’s biggest multi-tasker James Franco has released a music video for his band Daddy’s song, “Can’t Say Goodbye,” featuring childhood home movies of the actor and his family.

Franco reveals the track was inspired by the loss of his father, who passed away while the star was filming Oz: The Great and Powerful in Detroit last year.

He tells MTV, “The song is really sad for me, actually. When I was in Detroit, my father died, so I wrote a song kind of about it.

Franco adds, “Then my mother had recently dug up all the home movies that she had, so we thought it would be a good connection if we used those images for this song.”
