I have not been watching American Idol this year, so I don't have a clue what is going on there. But it's always fun to think about what would have happened if some truly great artists, who did not fit the American Idol mold, would have tried out.
Pete Seger, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash and a whole host of great others. The guy on the top is the great Woody Guthrie and the guy on the bottom is supposed to be Frankenstein Simon Cowell.
Frankenstein Simon Cowell
Here's a couple of songs from Woody. Lessons learned and I think, at least partly forgotten.
And of course "This Land is Your Land". We used to sing this one in school.
