What is Up with

So a lot of people have been asking me when the site is going to be updated, when we will loose our old, tired and low end look and when we are going to start letting you know more about what is going on with Daughtry. The answers are...

  • Soon
  • Soon - and
  • Soon

The truth is I have been very busy and since the band still hasn't released a second album (which I am waiting for like all of you) I have not been sure what to update the site with lately.  My company (Franklin Spirko Media) however, just hired a great new web developer named Bobby Wilson.  On top of doing great design work Bobby is also lead singer of a pretty cool band called Hope Dies Last.  Bobby's band is great and actually pretty edgy and a bit "harder" in tone then Chris was even in his Absent Element days.

I think Bobby will do a great job in redesigning and we will be making this site part of our official portfolio so it will start getting the attention it deserves.  Our 30,000 plus members deserve it!  By the way check out Bobby's Bands MySpace Page.  If you like hard metal music you might really enjoy it.  He sure has livened up my office!

Where is Chris Going to be Next? 

One of the biggest questions I keep getting is where can I go and see Chris next?  The best place to keep up with that is actually Chris' official site and you can see his upcoming events here 

Keep in mind when I set up this site back during the American Idol days Chris didn't have an official website.  As I move forward I am looking for things we can bring to fans of Daughtry beyond what the band puts on their official website.  Things like the video below, remember to let me know about any special insider information or any cool things that are not widely known.  I will let our members know about it and cite you as the source if you want to be mentioned or leave you as anonymous if you prefer that.

Two Way Awesome YouTube Videos with Chris' Music

I really like both of these videos and this is a perfect example of the stuff I want to start bringing to members of Chris Daughtry Fans that you won't find on the official Daughtry Web Site.

This first video is a tribute to our troops and is something I tried to put together myself last year.  Unfortunately I did not get enough photos submitted to put together what I was looking for.  That said this video is very cool and it will quickly show you why so many of our men and women overseas now consider "Home" and anythem that speaks to the very heart of what is most on the minds of our brave men and women, coming home.  The words are so perfect too, 

"I'm not running from.  No, I think you got me all wrong.  I don't regret this life I chose for me"

As a vet of the First Gulf War I could not have written a better line to describe how soldiers feel about doing their duty.  It is almost amazing to me this was written about his time on Idol because it is a PERFECT way to describe things from a soldiers eyes.  If you don't shed a tear and feel proud at the same time during this video, check your pulse.


And now for something completely different.  I found this video by a guy named Scott Matthews who is an amazing shot gun exhibition shooter.  Scott does things with a shot gun I did not even know were possible, back ground music is "It's Not Over".

What has Jack Been Up To

If you have been a site member since the American Idol days then you know I have been a Chris fan since day one.  The fact that this site has never truly been commercialized is really a direct outcome of that.  It was just built to be a cool site for a guy I really liked.  In fact another American Idol season has come and gone and again no new sties from me on Idol.

As some of you know I actually own and have built several companies and have been a sales person my entire life.  I did want to share something special that I am my partner Neil Franklin just accomplished with my site members.  We just published our first book and I am trying to get it off the ground.

The book is called "Your Inner Salesman" and it is not just for sales people.  If your in sales you may really want to pick up a copy but even if you are not this book can help you get ahead in life.  In fact if you know a young person just getting into college or entering the job market the advice in the book can really help their career, so you might consider picking up a copy for someone like that as a gift.

You can order a copy of the book at this link, and we have a site dedicated to the book located at and you can even get an audio of me presenting some of the books concepts on that site.

I know this is totally unrelated to Chris and the band but I am pretty excited about my new book and I consider all the members of this site to be friends, so I thought I would ask you to consider buying a copy if you think it might be of benefit to you.  Anyone that does pick up a copy of this book is hugely appreciated, again you can order your copy at this link.
