I absolutely love my tiny little David Cook "RECORD". It's so dang cute, I just had to try it out. And it has turned out to be very useful. It downloaded very nicely into my Verizon Cellphone that is also a mp3 player and camera. I was unable to download the physical CD's that I purchased from various retailers or from the itunes download due to licensing restrictions. Just thought I'd share.

I read through this thread, and I didn't see this listed. I thought I would post for archival purpose.
Rolling Stone-January 8, 2009 Issue-Page28-Article mentions David Cook
"2008 THE YEAR IN MUSIC"
"CAN'T STOP THE ROCK"
"Hard Rock returns in a big way; with smash hits from AC/DC, Metallica"
New albums from AC/DC, Metallica and Guns n' Roses? Welcome to Rocktober! And Rockvember! The monsters-of-rock final-quarter release schedule was like the collective wet dream of every shop-class miscreant who carved "Zoso" into his desk-and it left us with tendinitis in our devil-sign fingers. "Every two or three years, it's 'rock is back' scenario," says Metallica's Lars Ulrich. "Of course, it never goes away, but that's OK. I still like hearing myself say it: 'Rock is back!'" And this time, it seemed to be the real deal: Kid Rock had his biggest year ever, Bon Jovi and Motley Crue ruled the road, and kids snapped up Guitar Hero and Rock Band video games by the hundreds of thousands (a special Aerosmith: Guitar Hero Game game gave the band the most lucrative debut of its career, grossing more than $25 million in its first week). ROCK EVEN RULED AMERICAN IDOL; THAT DUDE DAVID COOK TRIUMPHED. And three of the year's top 10 bestselling albums were rock. (Four if you count Coldplay-you make the call.)

I don't sign in often, but lurk here most every day to catch up on David Cook news. I just wanted to thank you for all your great work, and tell you how much I enjoy the new look. Tonight it is snowing on the screen, with a slight buildup at the bottom of the screen. It looks awesome. Great job, guys. Merry Christmas.
P.S. I didn't know where to put this. So I posted it here.

I am trying to navigate the new site at DCO. I feel really embarrassed to ask this question, however, I am new to joining a fan group. So I came back here to ask this question. I feel like I am in a cave other there.
What's the difference between a Buddy and a Friend?
When someone adds me as a Friend do I need to take any special action?
Thanks in advance.

Cook heats up BOK Center

Tulsa's own 'American Idol' champion thrills fans in the tour's final concert
David Cook's dream of rocking Tulsa's new BOK Center came true Saturday night.
Cook, this year's "American Idol" champ, stole the show on the "American Idols Live" tour final stop.
And fans turned out in droves for this year's top 10 finalists, waiting hours outside for autographs despite pouring rain.
But it was local favorite Cook who drew the loudest screams and had the audience on its feet for his entire set.
"It has been one of the most frustrating, unnerving and amazing years of my life," Cook told the crowd. "And to have it end here is pretty poetic."
A fan held up a sign: "Tulsa misses you!"
Cook was a fixture on Tulsa's music scene before auditioning for "American Idol," playing shows and tending bar at clubs such as the Blank Slate, Rehab Lounge and the Gray Snail. Saturday's gig was a bit bigger — a packed venue of screaming fans at the new downtown arena
Any Cook fans who didn't catch Saturday's show can take comfort: He'll be back.
"I'm really stoked about coming back to Tulsa for my solo tour," Cook said in a pre-concert interview. "I've spent the last year singing everyone else's songs, so now I really want to do my own music."
But first, he had to finish the "Idols Live" tour, much to the delight of those who turned out to hear Cook's guitar-shredding versions of "Hello" and "My Hero."
His thunderous voice resonated through the venue as he threw guitar picks to fans, thanked his family and friends in the audience and threw himself into the arms of fans while singing. Playing the final "Idols Live" show Saturday was bittersweet, Cook said, because he's going to miss spending time with the tour's other stars, finalists David Archuleta, Syesha Mercado, Jason Castro, Brooke White, Kristy Lee Cook, Carly Smithson, Michael Johns, Ramiele Malubay and Chikezie.
It was clear from the audience screams that Archuleta, this year's runner-up, has a nearly-as-rabid fanbase as Cook (if a bit younger). The teen singer was earnest and sweet during backstage interviews, and his melodic voice floated through the BOK Center during stirring performances of One Republic's "Apologize" and "Stand By Me" during Saturday's show.
Archuleta reached down from stage during his performance to touch one young girl's hand, and she immediately began kissing her treasured hand afterward. A fan's sign thrown on stage read: "David A. can I take you to dinner?"
Highlights from the other performers included Brooke White singing and playing piano on a soulful "Let It Be," Jason Castro strumming and singing on "Over the Rainbow (the Israel Kamakawiwo'ole version) and Michael Johns thrilling female fans with a spicy version of "It's All Wrong, But It's All Right."
Cook jokingly brought his pal Michael Johns a red rose at the end of his performance of the Dolly Parton classic.
Tulsa's "American Idol" spent Friday and Saturday in town, golfing and hanging out with friends (breakfast at Whataburger was a must, Cook said). Sunday he was headed to Kansas City (he grew up in Blue Springs, Mo.) to sing the national anthem at the Chiefs game with his younger brother, Andrew.
Fans anxious for new, original music from Cook will have to wait until November for the release of the album he's working on with rock producer Rob Cavallo, along with a few well-known Oklahoma names — his former Midwest Kings bandmates Neal Tiemann and Andy Skib, and Zac Maloy of the Nixons.
As for his post-Idol future, Cook might as well dream big. With the BOK Center conquered, what other pie-in-the-sky dreams does he have?
"If I could do what Garth Brooks did at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, and sell out nine straight nights of shows, that'd be pretty gnarly," he said.
