Spotlight on Former American Idol Bo Bice

Posted: May 11, 2010

Southern Rocker and former American Idol Bo Bice has a hot new country and Southern Rock album out. Look for a review in GRITZ soon. For now, we want to spotlight our archived inbterview with this good ol' Alabama rock and roller, in which he told us just how he came to audition for Idol.


'It was kind of funny. It was initially a bet from my Mom. I was managing a guitar store for several years. My Mom watched the show, and I was familiar with American Idol because when I moved to Birmingham, it was when Ruben Stoddard was on the show, and you couldn’t throw a cat without hitting a sign with Ruben’s name on it. But my Mom said I should try out for the show. I checked on it, and at the time the age limit was 25 years old. So I told her, and nothing else was said for a year. Then I came home from work one day and the news announced they had upped the age limit to 28. At the time I was like three months from being 29. (Laughs) So I was cutting it close. I called my Mom, and she said “You’ve got to go.” I told her I would lose $400 in a paycheck and $600 in gigs to take the time off to audition. That would be $1000. I told her I just didn’t think I could afford it. Finally I told her I would do it if she would go with me. So I drove over to Atlanta and picked her up and we went down to Orlando. I was the next to the last audition. She spent the whole time with me. I wouldn’t have done it without her, so I owe her a big debt of gratitude."

"All right." Dortmunder seemed to shrug his shoulders, to sit a little straighter in the chair. "Now," he said. "We don't let the kid go around here, because that leaves us the whole long run to the city with every cop in New Jersey looking for us. So we take him to New York, and we give him a subway token, and we let him out of the car in midtown. With a token he can't make a phone call to turn the law loose on us right away. All he can do is take a subway or a bus. That gives us time to fade out." Murch's Mom said, "Why can't we do that tonight? Take him to the city, drop him off, I get to sleep in my own bed, cook a meal, flush a toilet." Dortmunder said, "Where's the kid go at night? You're gonna leave a kid in midtown at night? Some sex maniac comes along and kills him and we get blamed. Tomorrow he can go to his father's office, or he can go up to that place on Central UGG Boots Clearance Park West, he can go wherever he wants." "Sure," Jimmy said. "That sounds fine to me."

Dortmunder knew Ugg boots clearance he was being grumpily unfair, and that just made him grumpier. "Where was I?" he said. "Right.

"I've had all the scope I need," Dortmunder said. "I've been scoped enough." "Wonderful," Murch's Mom said. "Another night in the Antarctica Hilton." Murch said to Dortmunder, "What Ugg boots clearance if we just let him off near his house? Tonight, I mean." "No," Dortmunder said. "He immediately gets the law on us. We have sixty miles to get to New York, and they know that's where we're headed, and we never make it." "We can give ourselves an edge," Murch said. "I happened to notice that for the last half mile on the county road to the kid's place there isn't any phone booth at all. No gas stations, no stores, no bars, nothing, just a couple farms, a couple Ugg boots clearance private estates. And you know the way those places are set up for protection from strangers. The kid wouldn't dare just walk in some driveway after dark. He'd get eaten up by a dog first thing, and he knows it." "That's true," Jimmy said. "On Halloween, when I used to go trick or treating, Maurice had to drive me." "You keep out of this," Dortmunder told him. To Murch he said, "That still only gives us maybe fifteen minutes head start. In Jersey I can't disappear. In New York I can fade away like that." And UGG Boots Clearance he snapped his fingers. Murch's Mom said to her son, "It's okay, Stan. He's really right, and I can put up with this place one more night. I'm almost getting used to it." May said, "What about the boy's father?" Dortmunder said, "What about him?" "He'll be expecting Jimmy back. I think we should call him, so he won't worry all night." "You're right," Dortmunder said. "Stan, you and your mom and Andy take the kid to a phone. Let him talk to his father, but make sure he doesn't say too much."
