Interview carried on Caryl's blogspot, with Tim of Tim's Travels' talks Taylor Hicks' new record, "The Distance" coming out February 10, 2009 (and Hick's current role in "Grease").
What should absolutely leap out at anyone watching this segment is the fact pointed out by Tim, the traveling interview guy, the musicians playing with Taylor Hicks on this upcoming CD are already famous, hell, Taylor's got Eric Clapton's (and the late Stevie Ray Vaughn's) musicians on the new record with him.
These guys don't 'need' Taylor Hicks. Simon Climie doesn't 'need' Taylor Hicks, but they obviously see 'something'.
