No Abrahammy, we have no idea if Clive is out of the way. Just that David Foster seems to be mentoring him. The fandom is hopeful that that is a good sign that Clay will work with David as soon as he is free to. All we know is that David gave Clay the music for Lover All Alone and encouraged Clay to write the lyrics, and that David and Clay have done some benefits together. They call each other good friends and Jaymes is going to be working on Clay's next CD.

I am totally clueless about Clay's contract situation with Clive. He can't be tied to him forever can he?? There must be some light at the end of the tunnel if Clay wants to get away from him. At least I hope so for his sake if he is unhappy.

Muse, I think he and his fans were just disappointed with Clive mandating the covers CD for the all important sophomore CD. I mean why stick this young man with a covers CD? Bad enough Clive is forcing it on Rod and Barry. Rod said he did NOT want to record that last covers CD. But Rod and Barry are older and established. It was a sin to saddle Clay with that. Even tough I love the CD because of how wonderfully it was produced and sung.

Hi Muse! I recently figured out that you were NYS/Muse. Laughing The fans have been speculating about his contract with Clive for a long time, but it seems no one has been able to get the details of the commitment.

If Clay is indeed stuck with Clive for a while longer, an upside to his association with Jaymes is that Clay now has a friend and respected mentor in the business. I think the relationship with Clive is a puzzle, but there may be a power play going on. Both are control freaks, except that Clive holds the deck. But....Clay has a loooooong memory. When he puts out a self-titled CD, I think we will know who won that round.

Has anyone else been following Josh Groban's career? I've been a fan of his since 2002 and I have been impressed with how David Foster and Brian Avnet, Josh's manager, have developed it. Both David and Brian have posted on Josh's official message board in the past and answered questions about their roles in his development. Josh didn't really fit into a current niche. Instead, David and Brian wrote a business plan which they presented to Warner Bros and convinced TPTB there that there was a unfilled niche that Josh could fill and requested support from Warner Bros. Then they went to work to produce his CD and promote him in selected markets and venues. The rest is history and it happened in a relatively short period of time. Clay doesn't play instruments and does not seem inclined to write, but IMO I think he is just as good vocally and has the potential to be as successful as Josh if he can find a supportive label and, of course, the right songs for his voice.

He picked a good year to make that decision. May be the only person on the planet who does not have a strong opinion on Sanjaya Malakar.

Here is a link to downloads of some HAWT and funny vids from the Gala last Saturday. Be sure to right click and save. The "RING" vid is a must for a Clay fan. These are close and he looks the best he ever looked. He was funny and adorably sexy! In fact you should download the "Ring" vid even if you are not a fan because then maybe you will understand why I am!! Well, plus his beautiful voice! But he is just such a good guy.

It appears that Clay is not playing in Dallas after all. He will be in Frisco, TX. instead on a different date. The Houston concert is still on. Abrahammy, were you going to the Houston show or the Dallas show?

Abrahammy, so sorry about the Nokia No Show Sad No one knows what happened just that people got emails that it's not happening. He will be performing at some big 4th of July event in Frisco, TX. Houston still on. Someone at Nokia said Clay was never confirmed to be there, but it was on the OFC and Nokia advertised it. There are some really upset fans. There are people who already bought airplane tix and made hotel reservations. Hugs to all upset and out some big bucks.

BAH! Well, at least I had not shelled out any money yet. I'm not sure about driving two hours on a holiday to see him in Frisco. MAYBE if my daughter wants to go, we can make it a mom/daughter bonding thing like we did with Connie, but if she doesn't feel like it, I am staying home.

Well, damn.

Abrahammy, it appears the 4th of July thing is like some big festival event with a soccer game first, Clay and fireworks. I don't even know from what I have read if this show is going to be his regular concert or if it will be different then the shows in Houston etc. I think if your family wants something different to do on the 4th it might be fun. I'll keep you informed of anything I find out.

Is the Houston show too far for you? Someone pulled up good seats a couple hours ago.

There still are no shows in the midwest so I guess I will not get to see him this time around. I'm so bummed about that. I haven't seen him in a year and a half. I know it has been longer for you, but I was sure looking forward to seeing him this summer.

Well, we figured Clay grew the beard for Unicef. Here is a press release/conference/Q&A about/with Clay and his trip to Afghanistan. It is an amazing (though long) read. He is just an incredible man. Brave and caring and smart. If you take the time to read you will understand why I am such a fan of this man. This is why I am protective of him. He is just such a good person.
