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.

SueReu's excellent Timeless Tour overview -- I Had the Time of My Life -- was featured in the previous Carolina entry.

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.

SueReu's montage is hysterically funny! Thanks, Sue and thanks, Carolina for bringing it to us in a sendspace! Clay has always been funny and lightening quick in ad libs, but now I recognize why he and Ruben have been friends so long... Ruben is funny and quick-witted, too. GREAT pair and I hope something more comes of this pairing.

I'm so glad we have the clack to watch since the tour is over. So much fun! Thanks for a great blog.

I listened to Brian Williams "Gershwin" album & was delighted to see that this musical genius still has it. Couldn't help but thinking though, that as good as this Gershwin/Beach Boys sound is - they really need Clay to make it dazzling.

Thanks Sue for another great montage.

So many awesome montages being made to reflect back on the wonderful times that the "Timeless" tour brought us. Can't imagine what we would ever do without our "Clack" goddesses! Let's raise our glasses in a toast to them and to you for bringing it all together!! CHEERS!!!

Tonight Beiber fever is hitting Ottawa. The arena is 5 minutes from my home so there is no doubt I'll be hearing the screaming of 20,000 pre-teen and adolescent teenage girls!

Hope you are having a wonderful day!

Thank you for your kind remarks about this Carolina entry. The Clay Nation is very fortunate to have such talented montage creators and visual artists. Because of them, the Timeless Tour is truly "timeless."

Many thnx to SueRue, clayaikenfan4ever18, as well as the videographers represented in their montages. Also, thank you to Fountaindawg and Invisible926 for the clickable concert graphic and photos.

Fall music lessons started Monday and Tuesday, and the teacher is just about wiped out. *g*

Have a wonderful week, all!

You're right Caro, I get completely lost when I'm watching all these new montages. I'm spending way too much time on the computer enjoying these wonderful masterpieces, and it's all you fault! "g"

Hi Caro,
Thank you for your continuous supply of Clay blogs. I'm still in a fog after meeting him in Verona and will probably not get over it for a very long time to come. He is just so amazing and awesome!!!Great pics and montages by our regular clack goddesses and photographers. Don't know what we'll do without them. Love them all.

Thanks again Caro. Love you :)
