It's a time to give thanks to the "Turkeys of the Year" - those musical miscreants who deserve a good basting for their "performances" in 2006:
David Lee Roth - The former Van Halen frontman and one-time master showman proved there was one thing he couldn't do very well: host a radio show. Granted, Roth faced high expectations by trying to fill the void left by Howard Stern, and nobody really expected him to be as good as Howard, but this guy was just awful. Hence, a very short career as a big-time syndicated morning host. His only hope for redemption would be if Eddie took pity and let him back into Van Halen.
Paul McCartney - Sir Paul has had a tough year, so I hate to pile on, but ... no pre-nup? Are you kidding? I want to believe in love as much as the next person, but when you're sitting on one of the biggest fortunes in music history and coming out of a longtime marriage, you have to be a little careful in protecting yourself. I'm not saying Heather Mills is/was a gold digger, but something tells me if Paul was a 60+ year-old street musician, the attraction may not have been as strong. So "Macca," as they say across the pond, doesn't make the list for something he did, but for something he didn't do.
Pete Doherty - What can you say about this guy? He simply continues to blow it (no pun intended). Even after vowing to kick his bad habits and win back Kate Moss (he somehow manages the latter), he still continues to flirt with disaster. The shameful part is that the guy is pretty damned talented and could become legendary for his music, instead of his misdeeds, if he managed to keep his head out of his butt long enough to make more records.
Fed-Ex - From his Teen Choice Award performance to his last days as Mr. Spears, K-Fed has been one jive turkey all year long. No list would be complete without him! As Jimmy Kimmel said, he's the world's first "no-hit wonder." That kind of says it all, doesn't it? Time to put this bird out of our his misery.
