    That kid is the only reason I occasionally sit down with my son while he watches that show. Well, also for 2 of the girls one was voted out last week.

    I don't know what it said before but it's still too misleading.

    Should read "clobbered on American Idol".

    Sorry but that was just freakin awful. Does Zakk owe someone a favor?

    Yeah, it didn't have quite the same feel to it, huh?

    It takes hearing it done like that to realize how right Sam got it.

    I'm sick to death of Zakk and his over use of pinched harmonics.....It's become a crutch for him......lazy bastard.
















    OK....I have no idea what a pinched harmonic is......just looking to bitch about something that the Guitar Room guys bitch about.....I'm trying to diversify.....

    Just as a matter of interest, has anyone on American Idol ever done a VH song? Obviously, it's never been attempted on UK Idol (as I doubt anyone would have ever heard of them). Cheers!

    That was fucking horrible, especially the kid coming in wrong on the "50 thousand watts of power" part. I didn't even like Zakk Wylde's playing that much...he's a wah nut now, it's his other crutch. Can't believe he did that show. I love Zakk but he's so predictable now.

    McQueen yes the pinched harmonics are a huge crutch for him, he must have done 500 of them in 2 minutes...good work.

    For all the Sammy haters. Listen to the real version of the song, and then listen to that drivel.

    Zakk made a mistake right before "when they shoot out the lights," he missed the first bar of the transition.

    This singer is good technically, but sings like a teenager. Looks like one too. Is it not cool to look like a man these days? And not wearing any red while singing a Sammy song... there should be a law against this!

    Yeah I think Zakk threw him off with that mistake yep.

    Exactly, he sounds like a little boy.
