American Idol winner David Cook and finalist David Archuleta were neck and neck last season on AI, but together they have forged a friendship, and recently spoke to Details magazine about their experiences.
The two remain close friends and spoke to Details magazine in the most recent issue about fame and their music:
When asked about their political beliefs, David Cook deflected the question with style: "I think voting is a personal right and a privilege. For me it's less about alienating anybody and more about not trying to be a persuasion. People need to vote based on their own ideas."
David Archuleta was more cryptic. "I try to stay away from taking sides in politics, sports—anything competitive, really, because fans get so into that. I don't want people to base their opinion of me on a small comment I make."
When asked what kind of music we can expect from the two Davids, they were more forthcoming.
Archuleta revealed his effort: " It's a pop album with a little R&B flavor. There's a nice variety, because I didn't want to pigeonhole myself. Being a teenager, I'm always changing my mind."
Rocker David Cook described his upcoming release: "Mine is very eclectic, although it's a rock record for sure. There are heavy, guitar-driven songs, very delicate piano songs, and everything in between. I had a chance to work with people I admire, like Raine Maida from Our Lady Peace, Kevin Griffin from Better Than Ezra, Johnny Rzeznik, Zac Maloy. It was great for them to treat me as a peer."
