Quoting from "Reality TV", "It’s bad enough that Taylor Hick’s gray hair makes him look like he’s twenty years too old for American Idol, but even the age listed during his audition was over the American Idol cut-off limit. The maximum age for a contestant to audition for American Idol is 28, but Taylor Hick’s age was listed as 29."
This is true he is grayer than I am without Ms. Clairol but I have had friends that were gray younger than he is now.
"Reality TV" goes on with, "If Kelly Pickler is destined to be compared to Carrie Underwood, Taylor Hicks might wind up being called this season’s Bo Bice. Besides being from the same state and in similar age ranges, both Taylor and Bo seem to have an appreciation for Jim Croce music. However, while Bo Bice leans toward Southern Rock, Taylor seems to lean more toward Soul music."
Well, in reality Taylor and Bo are only alike in that they call the same state home. That's about it so far. We'll see as the competition commenses what Hicks can really do. (Besides hang out with Hef at The Playboy Mansion.)
"The Birmingham Post Press" has this to say about Hicks,
"Taylor Hicks: Soulful bluesman who bought a $2 harmonica at age 16 and went on to share the stage with legends such as Percy Sledge. 2:40 p.m. Sunday, Homegrown Stage."
