Tom Jones

I’ve been saying this for years and now someone whose voice can also make a difference is concurring!  Love!

Tom Jones has spoken out against American I-Dull Judge Simon Cowell in an interview with The Daily Mirror.  The icon has said ” I have problems when people who have never got up on a stage to sing judge those who do. Who are they to say? Simon Cowell is a record man, not a singer. How can someone give advice if he or she is not qualified?  It’s like critics who criticise actors, never having been on a stage. Or having a teacher not experienced in teaching.  There are loads of judges with experience in the record industry, but can’t sing.  They may work for a record company, but to have stood where that person is standing is a unique thing. That’s the difference. It frustrates me when people comment on others singing when they haven’t actually been there themselves. You’ve got the shows with record executives, people who are listening for commercial reasons and whether someone will sell.”

Pass it on!

No, Howard, No!!!

Howard Stern on stage at Radio City Music Hall, 2009

Rolling Stoned is reporting that Howard Stern might be taking Simon Cow(ell)’s place on American’t I-Dull when Cowell departs the show next year.  Howard is thankfully denying the reports.  I hope this is true.  If he is truly the King Of All Media, he has no need to judge a weekly televised karaoke contest, according2g.
