Sugar Ray's Mark McGrath Wants to Be an 'Idol' Judge

Toss another name into the bin of wanna-be American Idol judges -- Sugar Ray frontman Mark McGrath.

Mark, who's already racked up an impressive TV resume with stints on Extra and Don't Forget the Lyrics, tells Billboard that he had a great time doing a one-night stand on Idol several years ago, and would love to return. He says "They've done the $20 million salaries and gotten no ratings; they might as well get a guy like me to do it for free.

"I think they're recalibrating how those shows are going to work; they got really bloated like any music industry product does, and now they have to get a little Napster and aggressive again. Sure, I'd love to do it."

Sugar Ray, Smash Mouth, Gin Blossoms, Vertical Horizon and Fastball begin their '90s nostalgia tour, Under the Sun 2013, Wednesday in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
