Remember this Taylor Hicks interview?
Q. What was the first thing you splurged on after you got your deal?
Taylor: I bought a camera -- a Cannon EOS 30. It's a really nice camera. I wanted to document all that's going on, and I got to with this camera.
This stuck in my head because I have an affinity for photography, though I've never had the time to learn how to do it right. Still, I fumble along with my inexpensive digital camera, documenting every little thing that lands within my line of vision.
Way back when GC was still up and running, I left a comment to the effect that someday Taylor should put some of his photos together in a book for his fans to buy. Immediately after hitting "submit," I felt like an idiot. Oh, not because of that particular comment. I always felt like an idiot immediately after voicing an opinion at Gray Charles. (ha)
I'd love to see Taylor Hicks put a book together like this. If he were legally able to include American Idol photos (especially from the tour), there would be a big market for it. Dont'cha think?
Maybe he's saving his personal photos for another autobiography? He wouldn't have to depend on expensive help from a Rolling Stones journalist this time. There are many talented writers within his fan base who could offer help. (*ahem*)
