Thomas here… we got to meet up with Bo Bice last night. Yes, THE Bo Bice. The guy from American Idol. The guy that changed the face of the show. He’s the one responsible for blowing the doors open for rockers to appear on those types of programs.
I had the opportunity to tour with Bo for years after he finished AI, playing keyboards and guitar. We did so many shows all over the country, and I was lucky to perform live on shows such as Regis & Kelly, Craig Ferguson, and Jimmy Kimmel. Bo and I have remained good friends, so you can imagine how thrilled I was to see Bo perform again.
Before the show, Bo sat down with us for a while, telling everyone some hilarious stories about the time with me on the road. It was fun reliving some of those moments… like the time we all got locked out of the bus and had to push Bo through the small driver side window. We all thought he would get stuck, but he somehow managed to wriggle through and save the day.
What a show! Bo has been touring with Blood, Sweat, and Tears, and WOW his voice sounds incredible. I was stunned. I sat back in my chair and said, “Wow,” a few times. The look on Kaity’s face told me that she agreed.
Afterwards, we spent more time with Bo, talking about our music and our plans. He adored Kaity.
I’m a very lucky guy… I got to play with one of the best singers out there, and now I’m getting to play with one of the best as well. Lucky guy, indeed.
