• Nobody does it better


    Happy Fourth of July, peeps! It’s time for cook-outs, flag-waving, and BFB’s favorite brand of fireworks – Bo Bice singing the Star Spangled Banner. We’ve heard Bo sing the national anthem many times – he loves to do it and he always does it well. No melisma, no pretentions, no making it his own, just a sure and simple reverence.

    Now, singing the national anthem is in no way a contest. But if it was…

    Nobody does it better

    Makes me feel sad for the rest

    Nobody does it half as good as you

    Baby, you’re the best

  • Catching up

    The blog looks a little different these days, ever since our theme gained self-awareness and decided to do some redecorating on its own. While the two of us try to come to an understanding, enjoy the best picture of Bo we’ve had for a while.

  • Tommy in 2016

    Peep favorite and keyboard master Thomas Lee is making music and blogs again. Despite being a full 50% of the duo Kaity and The Flood, Tommy still has time to show love to his old bandmates:

      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.

    Bo’s right, Tommy, you should run for president. This can be your campaign song.

  • Lions anthem

    Remember when Bo sang the national anthem at an NFL game in Detroit in 2011? We knew right away that he looked good.

    Twitter reported that he sounded good, too, but we were never able to hear it for ourselves. However, sooner or later our crack sleuth always gets her man, and she’s just tracked down a video clip. High five, sjohnston!

    It’s amazing to hear his voice bouncing off the rafters in the stadium. And to hear an NFL crowd that quiet and respectful up until the big notes! Way to go, Bo.

  • We’re back!!!!!!!

    Let’s party like it’s 2005!

    We’ve managed to reload the last good backup and whack it on the side just right so it works again. That means we’ve lost all blog and forum posts since late June, but hey. We’ll take it!

    (If the forum goes down again tonight, don’t anybody tell me.)
