Nearly each year Kristen and I have watched American Idol. It’s not as much a deep interest in pop singers that draws us to the show, but rather it just happens to coincide with a very snowy and cold time of year when we don’t want to be out.
This year is particularly interesting because a friend of a friend is actually in the top 24! Phil Stacey is/was in a band with one of my best friends from high school, Adam (who was the vocalist/guitar player for Unseen). They both went to college together and actually attended the same church. They both ended up in Jacksonville Florida for different reasons where they ended up being members of the same band. Phil and Adam’s roommate both auditioned together but only Phil made it to Hollywood.
