One Idol's Journey

Randy Jackson
Had to interrupt my power pop posting to comment on last night's expose on American Idol's Paula Abdul and her involvement with a contestant. Quite a few bombs dropped, not the least of which was celebrity judge Randy Jackson played bass and toured with Journey in support of the album Raised on Radio!(stereogum [trackback not working])

The image that they showed last night of him playing with Journey (in tight spandex... YIKES) reminded me of a theory I have about the 'block' 'fro cut he was sportin', and the theory went that that haircut is the 'fro equivalent to the rock mullet. Thoughts on the theory? Feel free to mullet over and post your comment.

Here's a playlist of all the schlock that Randy Jackson's been a part of. If you're like me, you'll recognize a lot of songs that you used to listen to and shudder to think at now.
