Feeling the love… Tod Burr, Lara Johnston & Casey Abrams

I want to post some support for two people I know, and one I don’t – but all three have some very cool footage on national TV this week!

First up is Tod Burr, also known as drumtech! I first became aware of him while he was on tour with INXS – and more recently I saw him with one of his own bands, Merle Jagger, out in a dusty bar in the middle of the desert. It was so much fun! He’s brilliant, and talented, and hot – which is a pretty good combination. And he’s in a new commercial for Lexus! When I first saw the finished commercial I thought it was all faked, but turns out it’s real – and he’s part of the team who made it happen. And he’s wearing black nail polish in a Lexus commercial, which is a whole new level of hotness!

Second, I have to give a shout out to Lara Johnston! I shot her backstage at Rock the Cradle, in 2008, and at the time she was just the freshest, sweetest thing – and a true talent! Well she’s back! She was on last night’s American Idol, and she got a golden ticket, which means we get to see her again at the next level. The footage of her is a little short, but hopefully that just means they’re saving her for better things later in the season!

And third, here’s another American Idol contestant – one I’ve never met – but he lives in Idyllwild, and attended Idyllwild Arts, and he’s talented, so I’m feeling the love for Casey Abrams…

  1. awesome about Tod;)

    And I missed that Lara made it through – that’s cool – I remember her…

    I think Casey is pretty charismatic – I can see him making the finals…

  2. I love that commercial! Too cool that Tod had a hand in it. I had no idea. Now the idol isn’t my thing, but I do remember liking the girl on the rock nepotism show, but the guy.. Casey? His sound is in right in Steven Tyler’s roundhouse. I’d be surprised if he didn’t have his support.

  3. I’ve never been a big fan of American Idol either Dana – I’ve tried, but I’ve never been able to get into it… But this season, if Lara and Casey both make it to the finals, I may find myself a little more interested!
