Gray Charles is back!

Ok, well not exactly.  GC attended the LiMBO After Idol party at Workplay in ‘Bama, and he posted a wonderful recap of the show here at his old site.  I’m happy that I’m once again able to link to Gray Charles…

His photographs of the event are here.  Thanks GC!

By the way, I finally got a chance to check out the Workplay videos, and I have to say that I envy the folks who were in attendance.  Taylor, Elliott, Ace and Bucky were awesome as they jammed with the band.  Elliott and Taylor set that place on fire duetting on “Whipping Post”.  This is not yo’ mamma’s American Idol–that’s for sure.

Thank you.
