Seattle Regins

According to the show “American Idol”, Seattle singers suck. I’ve never seen the show, but I’m familiar with the people who list Idol on their resume: Taylor Hicks, Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Clay Aiken, etc…. All I can say: yuck.

Who lists Seattle on their resume: Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Sound Garden, the current home of Dave Matthews, and, of course, Jimi Hendrix and Quincy Jones. All I can say: the defense rests.

Having Simon say Seattle has the worst talent in the nation, and this Ryan Seacrest guy call Seattle a “talent vacuum”, is the best validation of the quality of the Seattle music scene this decade. This little city has had a bigger impact on music this this show could ever dream of.
