    Default David Cook - American Idol

    I re-learned a valuable lesson last night.

    Don't judge a book by its pretty boy cover.

    Went to see David Cook last night (American Idol winner) because a friend of mine, Taylor Carson, got to open for him.

    I honestly don't know a single David Cook song, and I went in with the intentions of leaving after a few songs. But instead, he blew my doors off. Great singer, good player, good band, great show, good stage command and interaction with the crowd. I was shocked at how good they were. Top notch professional show.

    And he did one of the coolest things I have ever seen at a live show. As a thank you for all the hard work his roadies do, he lets one of them come up and play guitar and sing lead on a cover of "Sweet Home Alabama" and he let the guy play lead guitar on a "Separate Ways" cover. He did a "Wicked Game" cover that I didn't think was that good, I usually like bands changing up the arrangement, so I give him an A for effort, but it come up short in my mind.

    My friend killed it as well. A great night out with the wife.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    He lived here in Tulsa before he was on Idol. Worked as a bartender and played in a band. A woman I worked with (a few years older than me)just loved him. I mean really loved him! I used to tease her that he was young enough to be her son. She said, "but he's not!" OMG!!

    He talked about his time playing little gigs in Oklahoma and Texas. He was very adept at telling little stories while changing his guitar tunings between songs.

    Yeah, my wife really digs David Cook. I've seen him twice with her, and he is great! I echo all the comments of Dave's Dreidel except for the "Wicked Game" comment because I've never heard it. Totally worth it to see him.

    We met him after both shows, too. Very genial...a good dude.

    Yeah, he's the real deal. You would think by now I wouldn't let pre-conceived notions cloud my judgement going in, but I'm obviously a slow learner. Would go see him again in a heartbeat, would even pay the next time.

    back when he was on IDOL my wife and I actually watched that season and they had to do a beatles cover. He totally thought outside the box and did Whitesnakes version of Day Tripper and it was freakin' awesome, he was out there with just a guitar and an amp and it was seriously one of the coolest things I've seen on that show ever. On the last show (the one right before they announce the winner) he did Chris Cornell's version of Billy Jean my Michael Jackson and it was really, really cool.

    I like the guys voice but I've never gone out of my way to get any of his stuff. Maybe I'll youtube him later today.
