Control and Release

I began writing this article before I knew that David was scheduled to appear on this week’s Idol results show. The premise of the article was that perhaps the recent relative quiet in Archuland was a time for reflection, and may have been serving as such even for David himself. I speculated the possibility that, ...

Think of Me: Studio Version

I haven’t written much about the studio recordings because for the most part I don’t really like them. They rotate the kids through the studio as quickly as they can and it always sounds it. The cuts from a technical standpoint are generally professional (although some of my audio engineering colleagues ...

The human dilemma has always been our innate sense of perfection combined with a vivid awareness of our distance from it: our knowledge of the fall from grace, to put it in the vernacular of this album’s topic. There are those for whom an analysis of the proximity to perfection only emphasizes the curse of ...

Respecting David

It is no secret that at certain times in certain quarters, certain factions of the fan base can allow their hormones to get the best of them and express in commentary certain, shall we say, observations and interests regarding David. Physical appeal is a significant and legitimate aspect of many popular performers, and when it ...

More Than Inspiration

Being the slightly obsessed Archie that I am, one of my first thoughts upon hearing of the death of Michael Jackson was concern for David. How would he manage having to be onstage just hours after learning of the death of one of his icons, a primary source of his own musical inspiration? I was ...

Being Balladeer

It’s hard not to feel protective or defensive of an artist about whom you feel so passionate. It’s also hard not to make comparisons, almost always a misguided proposition. That’s why when Adam Lambert appeared on the cover of Entertainment Weekly toward the end of the season eight American Idol competition as the crown certain, ...

A Memorial Day Tribute

Somebody Out There (originally posted Janury 9, 2009 on notingDavid) It might be impossible to say too much about this song, or else maybe words are entirely insufficient. David’s work is best appreciated, in my opinion, with as few accompanying flourishes as possible. David thrives in simplicity because his voice encompasses the universe. All the extras ...

David 1.0

David may be a born singer, but unlike many other young, aspiring talents, David is not a born performer. Quite the contrary. As a child, his shyness and humility required that he be coaxed and cajoled into singing for small groups of relatives and friends, and slowly but surely in front of increasingly larger crowds. ...

UK Tour with McFly

McFly guitarist Danny Jones   Now this looks like a good fit. A credible, successful, talented London pop-punk band formed in 2004 and already on its sixth album, McFly’s reputation is “not just a boy band” but one with “serious musical skills” and “genuine likability” that has also proved themselves to be endlessly charitable: They have recorded songs ...
