Video: Linkin Park Covers Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep”

If you were to ask me which artist or band would be least likely to cover Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep,” I’m pretty sure Linkin Park would have been included on the list. Nevertheless, check out the band’s cover of “Rolling in the Deep” they recorded in Hamburg, Germany.

This is the power of a great and somewhat magical song. Everyone covers it. And hats off to Linkin Park, I think they did a pretty solid job with the song.

David Cook Live in San Francisco – Alice 97.3 Acoustic Lounge

Day two of “David Cook Takes the Bay Area” happened yesterday in San Francisco!

The show took place at Harlot, which is a small, more intimate venue than the room at the Hotel De Anza. I liked the venue a lot. It had this really interesting ambiance to it.

The show started promptly at 6 p.m. David and Neal came out and jumped right into playing “Heroes.”

In between songs, Marcus D (Alice DJ) would chat it up with David. In the video below they talk about who David thinks will win American Idol this season and what David didn’t expect to happen after becoming a “rock star.”

The set list played out just like the San Jose show. The rest of the songs played were “Come Back To Me,” “Light On,” and “The Last Goodbye.”

Like yesterday, I recorded “The Last Goodbye.” Check out the video after the cut!

Darren Criss Appreciation Post

I know I cover Darren Criss quite a bit here at Wait…WHAT?, but I have to show love for my Bay Area favorites!

Darren has done quite a bit of press for the Glee: The Music presents The Warblers album in the past week, and I just wanted to highlight some of it! I figured individual posts mights get overwhelming and possibly obnoxious.

I am including performances/interviews from Ellen, Rolling Stone, MTV’s The Seven & a couple other favorite videos I have come across from the past week!

That said, enjoy the Darren Criss Appreciation post!
