I've always had a thing for musicians. I went through a phase in college where I dated a drummer, followed the band around to different schools, skipped class and lived the life of a groupie. (Sorry Mom.) I continued my obsession in Chicago by making my friends go to divey bars to hear live acts. I think there was one summer where I heard the Freddie Jones Band play at every street fair in the city. There is something special about hearing someone pour their heart and soul out on stage.
To say I was obsessed with David Cook during Season 7 of Idol is an understatement. I loved that he was not exactly what Idol had showcased in the past and I loved his rock vibe. I totally turned in to one of those "Cougars for Cook" ladies frantically dialing in my vote. I know I seriously contemplated a trip to the Power & Light when they filmed his hometown visit and I think I screamed and jumped up and down when he won. (For those of you who don't know, he's from Blue Springs, a suburb of KC.)
He's starting to promote his upcoming album and performed the first single, "The Last Goodbye" on last week's Idol, but it's this cover of Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" that has got me all hot and bothered again.
Insane. Love a man that work a guitar. Enjoy!
