The Collision of Strange Obsessions

My Mark Lanegan obsession is well-documented throughout this site. My American Idol obsession is, sadly, well-documented throughout this site. Now, my obsessions come together in some strange convergence of stars.

In USA Today‘s review of the American Idol singers from last week, Don Waller had this little nugget about Chris Daughtry.

If Ikea sold alternative-rock vocalists, they’d sound and look like this. As anyone who’s heard, say (ex-Screaming Trees/ Queens of the Stone Age/solo artist) Mark Lanegan, knows, this guy’s no Mark Lanegan. By the way, that penguin-in-bondage arrangement came courtesy of Live, who are currently — and deservedly —residing in the “Where Are They Now?” file. Chris has got to prove he’s more than a one-trick pony. They shoot horses, don’t they?

Makes me happy just thinking about it…

Comments & Trackbacks
The trackback URL for this entry is:

Favorite and only story about Live:  They did an interview with the Onion’s AV Club many years ago.  One of them talked about how some guy wrote to them and told them that you could rearrange the letters in “Live” to spell “Evil”.  Near as I can remember, this is exactly how it was printed:

Bandmember: “We were really surprised that somebody would take the time to figure that out.” (-ed.  It’s really not that difficult.)
