I don't know where you people LIVE . . . Outer Mongolia, maybe?
I mean, have you ever Googled Taylor Hicks?
You get almost TWO MILLION responses...for pete's sake.
The guy's all over the internet...
And all over the USA playing to sold out concerts in his current tour.
His album sold like, uh, can you say Gold?
Even though he was pushed to get it out in record time by A.I.
No, he doesn't have the hard-rock appeal of Daughtry, with whom Taylor remains friends because he's not a bitter little weenie like Timberflake.
But don't kid yourselves...
Taylor Hicks will be wowing 'em in Vegas & Los Angeles and New York City after Chris has gone home to his sweet wife Deanna & their nice kids in white-bread America.
And McPhee will still be singing somewhere over the rainbow . . .
For openers, check here:
The best part?
Hicks is the real deal: a nice guy without a big head who has a meet & greet before every appearance/concert where he spends almost an hour talking & taking pictures with folks going thru hard times:
like the kid who's dad was murdered that I met in Greensburg, PA

Kath's brother, Dave Matthews
