David Cook – Radio Interviews – “I remember just being really nauseous and dry heaving, I was so scared”

ETA: Check out this brand-new interview with David Cook from Entertainment Weekly.   It’s pretty in-depth and covers everything from that 2nd indie album David nearly had finished before his Idol stint, to giving Simon the what-for during the Idol finale, to recording his first major label album.

David also elaborates on the themes of some of the songs on his album.   We’ve got a lyric thread going on here.   See if your interpretation matches David’s! One song “Bar Ba Sol” is from the Atlanta band Injected.   A poster from DC-42 found the original song online:

I’m liking that a lot!

Here’s an excerpt from the article:

  • About making his first major-label record   – I only hated having to change mindsets. I enjoyed touring and I enjoyed recording, and I hated having to rewire my brain between the two. That was tough….But it helped that [producer] Rob Cavallo and I really hit it off. And I was able to bring my guitar player aboard early. Neal has an idea where my head is at musically, so it was nice to have somebody in the studio, when I wasn’t there, who spoke for me and spoke accurately….I’m still kind of in awe of it. To do what we did in this amount of time is no small feat. We essentially put a year’s worth of work into three months.

David Cook continues to promote his single “Light On” in a couple of radio interviews from this morning, and I have them right here for your listening pleasure!

The listeners of WKZL in Greensboro, NC give “Light On” a thumbs up during a “Make it or Break it” segment. David talks about writing “Permanent” with Raine Maida.

This interview, from z99.5 out of Indianapolis has David describing his stage fright before he took the stage on Saturday Night Live. “I remember just being really nauseous and dry heaving, I was so scared…it’s a different vibe from Idol for sure…”

Nevertheless, he says he had a “blast” and that the cast couldn’t have been nicer. He attended the after-party with host Ben Affleck, his wife Jennifer Garner and the rest of the SNL cast.
