David Cook Asks Fans to Back Off

David Cook

Living the rock star life has its perks, but former American Idol winner David Cook is having trouble giving up his privacy while on the road.

Cook took to his My Space Celebrity blog to address fan behavior that he says has gone beyond the usual rules of celebrity access.

The American Idol tour officially kicked off in Arizona July 1, starting a summer-long bus odyssey of the continental U.S. On day seven of the journey, though, David Cook and David Archuleta are already feeling the heat of mega fandom that they ignited during Season 7 — albeit in their own ways.For starters, their tour performances represent their respective hot and cool approaches. Cook claims the audience response so far to Archie is already a tough act to follow. He told TVGuide.com, "It's always fun to go stand in the back and listen to the audience when he first comes out. Crowds have been really noisy for Archie. It's been really intimidating!" Archie maintains, however, that his performance is "laid back" versus Cook's, which is "really exciting and full of energy." Despite Cook's supposed fear factor, the tour's already trumping the AI competition days. "There's more of an immediate gratification," he confided.
