Noteworthy Now

Moving the Grammy awards show from Tinsel Town to New York City did little to reduce the levels of hype and nonsense that have made the show and the orgainzation irrelevant to the vast majority of Classic Rock artists and fans.  With few exceptions, far more emphasis was put on smoke and mirrors and glitz and gimmicks than music.  Little of the hardware related to Rock was handed out during the televised ceremony.  If regaining some credibility with Rockers was a priority, you would never guess.  Leonard Cohen was a remarkable songwriter, but posthumously awarding him the Best Rock Performance at the Grammys was the most ludicrous thing since Jethro Tull won the Best Heavy Metal award.  Whatever.
