David Cook Appreciation Post

Happy New Music Tuesday, everybody! For those of us that are David Cook fans, it’s a big day, because his sophomore record, This Loud Morning is finally out!

As to not clutter up the blog with separate video posts, I decided to round up what I can find from the David Cook media blitz, and it will be posted here.

Kicking off the post with DCook’s Today Show performance of “The Last Goodbye”!

Ear Candy: New Politics — “Dignity”

If I had to choose one band right now that I think everyone and their momma should listen to, it would be New Politics. I think they’re one of the best bands on the music scene right now. The music is great alternative rock, with good hooks, and solid lyrics.

The trio (David Boyd, Soeren Hansen, and Louis Vecchio) have released their second single, “Dignity,” off their self-titled debut album. MTV has also named the band one of their “2011 Artists To Watch.”

The band recently made their network television debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where they performed “Dignity” live.

Check out their performance below.

If you ever get a chance to see New Politics live, they are not to be missed. I caught them opening for The Spill Canvas in San Francisco last April and also at Music in the Park in Downtown San Jose in July. Both were absolute stellar shows. David Boyd is an amazing showman. You will leave wanting more.

Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean Heads Back to Rehab

It was announced earlier this week that Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean is headed back to rehab.

In a statement released by his publicist McLean said, “For personal reasons, I’ve checked myself into a rehab clinic. With 2011 being a busy year for Backstreet, I want to be healthy and perform & sing for the people at my very best and happiest. None of this will affect our current tour plans and I look forward to seeing everyone really soon! Thank you for all your support and respecting my family and friends privacy during this time.”

It was during the summer of 2001 when McLean entered rehab for the first time. Four members of the Backstreet Boys, Brian Littrell, Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, and former member Kevin Richardson made an appearance on MTV’s Total Request Live (most notably referred to as TRL) to make the heartbreaking announcement to their fans.

The Backstreet Boys are heading out on tour this summer with their predecessors New Kids on the Block. Blue Bloods star and NKOTB member Donnie Wahlberg tweeted this message in support of McLean.

“As a friend of A.J. McLean- what matters most is his health. As a partner in this band- nothing will stop all 9 of us from doing this TOGETHER.”
