I mean really, so what if he turned down Canadian Idol. I would have, wouldn’t you???!?!?
Quite frankly, I am grateful that George, didn't do anything else but The Hour. I have watched more interviews and learned more things, heard more new music, checked out more great stuff and read more amazing books, then ever before because of The Hour and George's influence.
If he hadn't taken the Hour, I never would have met such an awesome guy!
The drama was thoroughly entertaining though. I, for one was much, much, much more interested in what he regretted in his life. Not what job he turned down.
And as for Shinan Govani’s implication that George turned down Idol, uh, where was the implication it was Idol? If I remember correctly (from a personal meeting with George ) it was an American show. And if Canadian Idol is the biggest show in Canadian history, we sooo have major problems.
"I mean I took that show in the States and it bombed, and it was an amazing experience, and I was offered a show that's a huge show here now and I turned it down. And people said to me 'that's the biggest show in Canadian history, why don't you do that show?'Because I wouldn't have felt right, you know?...But I don't regret it. I think it was awesome. Because of that I was able to get this show here."
George’s career choices are not news.
And as for our choice to take down our video…
To our viewers/readers, if we caused you an inconvenience... we are sorry.
We run the blog though and we get to take down our interview that we wrote, directed and produced at our will. Just as any site can choose to do.
So stop criticizing us for making a decision we deemed necessary or just felt like doing. The video is up for all to enjoy. Edited as we saw fit.
So, watch it…. Don’t watch it…. Whatever.
