Timothy Finn | Loyal fans come out for David Cook’s homecoming show

As he showed Friday at the Midland, David Cook hasn’t changed much since winning “American Idol” in 2008 He still comes off as a humble, friendly and humorous guy, and his music is still what it was when he was winning his TV title: a mix of anthems and romantic/heartache ballads all steeped in the dynamics of modern rock and streamlined grunge.
