Jason Castro Jah-Rastafari’s Himself Right Out Of Our Hearts
Dear, sweet, sexy Jason Castro. I should have known you’d pick a Bob Marley song to sing during Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame week on American Idol. And I love Bob! I do! And I commend you for picking such a bad ass, revolutionary song as “I Shot The Sheriff”. But with your hair, and your style, the chances of this performance tredding into terrible immitation territory were too great. Why did you have to do those horrible dancing in place moves that remind me of the drum circles out in the quad during college? Why did you have to give the song that “Whoopee! I shot the sheriff and it was AWESOME!”-giddyness that was totally lacking in the original? He shot the sheriff, dude, but he did not shoot the deputy, and seriously, it was not all fun and games. And neither was your performance. David Cook sang The Who’s “Baba O’Reilly” and it wasn’t as blasphemous. Be on your way, lovely Jason, I guess we’ll know tonight who was right in our poll.
