He earned a theater scholarship to the University of Central Missouri, but he abandoned theater after two semesters, graduating from the school in 2006 with a degree in graphic design.
“I want to get people to look up more, and the stars along with music are some of the best ways I know how to do that,” David shared about the cover art and concept for the EP.
At Blue Springs South High School, he performed in musicals, including The Music Man, West Side Story, and Singin' in the Rain.
In addition to this, he was an active member in the Blue Springs South High School National Forensics League (or NFL), where he qualified for the national tournament twice for duo interpretation, an event that relies on performance and interpretation of a literary work.
Today I’m going to talk about one that may or may not have really been a girlfriend of David “Non-Baldy” Cook, Kimberly Johnson, a model/nurse living in Atlanta, Georgia.
Kim was some years older than David which lead the Sockpuppets to proclaim her a ‘cougar’ even though she had no other cougarish characteristics and she really wasn’t old enough to be a cougar.
And at one concert, a fan risked her life by jumping 20 feet from a box seat just to get near him - and survived.
Kim is a beautiful redhead and the few photos seen of her and David together looked strangely photoshopped.
After a while an article with photographs turned up in a tabloid with quotes of things that supposedly she and David had said sounded real enough at first.
David and Susan met during the nationwide tour of musical All The Fun Of The Fair at the end of 2008 and wed in a private ceremony at a church on the outskirts of a small north Welsh village two years later.
He had a successful film career, notable movies including That'll Be The Day, Stardust and Silver Dream Racer.
