Videos Celebrate Timeless Tour
Clay, Ruben Shine in 'Revival'
The 17-city Timeless Tour of Clay Aiken and Ruben Studdard officially closed in Biloxi, MS, on Aug. 14, but more than a week later still thrives throughout YouTube in a bevy of concert videos and montages highlighting memorable summer performances.
The Timeless Revival by SueReu features clips of "Pastor Bishop Deacon Jedi Ruben Studdard"'s nightly healing of Clay's "lack-of-rhythmitis."
The already funny skit, enhanced nightly by the timely ad-libs of Clay and "Pastah" Studdard, was captured by videographers Scarlett, canfly, MBlovesClay, and goldarngirl.
Set to "Celebration" by Kool and The Gang, the latest montage by clayaikenfan4ever18 presents visual highlights of the Timeless Tour.
In addition to the YouTube channels of the montage makers, Timeless Tour clips comprise the latest entries on countless pages. Bookmark Wowzers4Clay for Scarlett's concert collection. The toni7babe channel also features many Timeless show videos.
Be forewarned -- once you start cruising concert video and montages at YouTube, hours pass in an instant. But what a way to go! Brian Wilson Records Gershwin
Decca's Tried & True CD by Clay Aiken honoring classic songs of previous decades has recently been joined by none other than Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys.
In an exclusive interview with Spinner, Wilson shared his ardor for George and Ira Gershwin, legendary composers who changed the face of music in the 1930s, describing the resulting CD, Brian Wilson Reimagines Gershwin, as his "proudest moment."
In a similar interview with NPR's Weekend All Things Considered, Wilson said of George Gershwin:
His music is so uplifting," Wilson says. "I wouldn't do this for anybody but Gershwin. He the greater, me the lesser. I can never be as good as George, but I can emulate him and present him to the new generation."
Three songs -- "Rhapsody in Blue/Intro," "The Like in I Love You," and "They Can't Take That Away from Me" -- can be sampled at the NPR website.
