I talked to him last night and he was letting it go, since it didn't really matter to him. His fill-in bass player couldn't make it, so they played some standards and he performed them very well. Life moves on...

Katie (the other top 2 contenstant) was excellent as well and her brother is one hell of a guitar player.

I'd like to see Jarrett win because I've known him for a few years now, and I've watched him grow. But I think we have a solid top 2, and they are both deserving to be where they are.

In the end they just played Run To You and Another Brick In The Wall. Not sure if those even warrant rehearsal...lol.

i was pretty dissapointed we couldn't accomodate Jarret on his tune.....however he did rip the poop out of Another Brick in the Wall LOL. it was lame to have to stoop to such a standard but damn it was fun!

if i had my wits about me, i could've just told him to bring either a bass player or guitar player and i would've covered the bass for Audioslave.....

He could've even played guitar himself (he ain't too shabby.) All in all it wasn't really a big deal about the song in the end. I just think the way it was handled was a bigger part of the issues.

You and Kevin sounded great BTW!
