Noteworthy Now

The influence of the Beatles transcended genres, so having representatives of Pop and Country included in the tribute the Grammy organization is putting together for the special CBS will air live on the 50th anniversary of the Fab Four's Febuary 9, 1964 landmark appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show is appropriate.  But the group's direct and lasting influence on Rock was tremendous, so having the Eurythmics as the only confirmed participants that come close to being considered Rock is lame... but our expectations of an organization that once awarded Jethro Tull the Heavy Metal Grammy are always kept in check.  Scheduled to join Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart on stage that night are John Mayer, Keith Urban, Alicia Keys, John Legend and Maroon 5.
