Soul patrol! Soul patrol!
Yes, I've fallen prey to the cult of Taylor Hicks. I am utterly, completely floored (but very happy) that a 29-year-old (29!) grey-haired Joe Cocker throwback from Alabama is more than likely to be crowned the new American Idol tonight. Here's hoping that Bonnie Raitt's up for a "Good Man, Good Woman"-type duet with him; with the right producers (Don Was?) Taylor could make a pretty great album. And as for Michael McDonald material, I wanna hear him cover "I Keep Forgettin'."
