Just got off the phone with Clay Aiken!

Like clockwork, Mary Brennan, the contact person working with Clay Aiken, called at the appointed time and I got my interview with the singer!

The cell-phone connection was crystal clear. Clay was tired from last night's show (he apologized for yawning a few times; touring will to that to ya!) but very enthusiastic and friendly. Time, though, was short, so I had to make the most of my 10 or so minutes or with Clay.

But ... of the more than 100 questions I got e-mailed to me since last night from all over the world (places from Poughkeepsie to Singapore), Clay was cordial enough to answer the THREE questions submitted by "Sean's Space" readers that I was able to squeeze in!

Honestly, I still have to digest everything and review my notes — let alone write the actual story that will appear in the Dec. 7 edition of the Poughkeepsie Journal's "ENJOY!" section, and actually do my usual work tonight — but fear not: I'll post Clay's answers to the three readers' questions here on "Sean's Space" by Friday morning.

Check back tomorrow to see if your question was one of the lucky ones chosen. You never know, Clay might have answered your question.

Now wouldn't that be a reason to say, "TGIF!" tomorrow?!

Thansk for keeping us posted Sean! Sounds like Clay's a nice guy. Good to know since I'm going to see him in concert soon. Can't wait to see the upcoming blog and interview! You going to be a the Poughkeepsie show too?

Thanks for the correspondence, Sharon! Yes, Clay was a really nice guy on the phone, giving me great information and quotes -- so much that I only got to ask about 1/4 of the questions I had ready for him. Hence, I did my best to get as many of the readers' questions in as possible. As for the Poughkeepsie show, I've got a previous work commitment, but I'm doing my best to get to the Mohegan Sun the next night. Enjoy the show and keep coming back to "Sean's Space!"
