A real interesting and lengthy interview with Dicko here. His favorite bands are The Clark Brothers and Franklin Bridge. He thinks the 12 year old metal heads, Light of Doom, are too young, and that perhaps their parents are living through them, just a bit. He calls Sixwire …Hormone-replacement therapy for middle-aged women. Ha ha, exactly why they will probably take it all…
As for what we can expect from the rest of the season:
So what in store for the final weeks of TNGAB? Dicko told us there a Rolling Stones theme week coming up (take that, American Idol!) and that there are some more big-name songwriters that the producers are currently in negotiations with. (This week, the music of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller ‘ who penned hits for legends like Elvis Presley and The Drifters ‘ is featured.) Dicko picks for theme nights would be Johnny Cash, U2, and REM ‘ all fabulous ideas that we can keep our fingers crossed for.
The bands will be doing cover songs only for the next couple of weeks, and one act will be eliminated each week.
What bands are Dicko thankful for?
He names The Beatles, The Clash, and The Arctic Monkeys ‘ …three generations that have inspired me.
