I just met "American Idol" David Cook!

For the second time now, I've met an "American Idol" champion in a Poughkeepsie post-show downpour.

Despite the constant precipitation and in spite of the fact that he's getting over a recent illness "I think we and the tour bus have finally kicked the flu bug," he told me earlier in the day David Cook was cool enough to spend a few minutes with his fans, including a pair of devotees who have crossed the country to take in all 18 of his "Declaration" tour stops so far. (Next stop: SUNY Brockport!)

Having talked on the phone Tuesday afternoon, it was nice to meet in person and shake hands with the reigning "Idol." I could tell you how good the show was, but that would kill the suspense when you read it here later. Let's just put it this way, America got it right last season! (No offense, David Archuleta. I've got "Crush" in my iPod. I think it's a fun, catchy tune.)

Remember: Check back here at "Sean's Space" and see which of your questions David answered during our interview...

Thanks for checking in, Sean. Glad you had a great time at the show and that you got to meet David.
I'm waiting for your write up with bated breath :) Take your time, though, so you remember all the details!

I'll be writing an online story at www.PoughkeepsieJournal.com, which will likely be up on the site Thursday.

Thanks for taking the time to get
to know how talented David and EEB.
The band is so talented that they sound like they have been together forever instead of months. David is very versatile with his singing and guitar playing. David is also very sensitive to the audiences reaction. He has a way of taking what he is feeling and make you feel it to. I am sure you have found him to be a very articulate, nice and humble. Thanks for your
blog and anxious for the article.
