If I already didn’t know that today’s music has passed me by, it was confirmed tonight.

    I haven’t watched the Grammy’s in many years and on a whim tonight thought I’d check it out. Well, that lasted about 45 seconds. Some guy named Tyler the Creator dressed in a suit with a blonde pageboy wig stood jerking around like he was having a seizure while making some type of noises into a mic while Boyz to Men harmonized behind him. It made beatbox noises sound melodic; not sure what the hell it was. Then a thing behind him caught fire and he jumped into a hole. And my father bitched about the Beatles and the Stones and their need for a haircut.

    I found it on YouTube. He was a winner tonight.

    Each generation seems to find a type of “music “ that their parents can’t stand
    My brother told me about something his daughter was listening to that he couldn’t take. He said “that’s not even music it’s just noise “. When he heard himself say those words he realized that he sounded just like Dad

    I saw some of the Grammys, yeah, bleh but someone tell me what that cool guitar the Aerosmith guy was playing, kind of a Gibson Moderne shape but better done and more curvy, reverse headstock too.

    I had to see whether you had missed something special ..... I lasted 3 minutes.
    I would say he's special.

    I'm patiently waiting for Bonnie Raitt's tribute to John Prine and for Gary Clark Jr.'s turn at the mike.

    Pretty certain.... That was a new all time low.

    And the camera shaking effect. Really creative.... I uh...

    Just leaves me sad.

    I didn't bother watching the Grammy's, not because it's filled with insipid groups that are a producers' dream, it is because of Kobe Bryant's passing. I couldn't relate to anyone dressed so ridiculously and sounding over produced, but performing live.

    Big fan of Lizzo here, as real as Grammy related music can get in 2020.

    But give me Nathaniel Rateliff, Vintage Trouble, St Paul, War and Treaty etc

    I cast no judgment- I recognize that each generation needs to have its own distinct pop culture.

    They can have it.

    Same here! Finally on...

    F**k me! Bonnie gets to sing one verse, and a quick nod/clap to John Prine. BS

    One of the best singer/ songwriter for 3 generations gets a short straw

    Damn, just missed Bonnie. Watching Gary though. And they are bleeping the bad words. Not just the vocal, but everything. Sigh.

    Cheers,
    Geoff

    Whoever that blond wigged guy was I gotta agree he was pretty bad. But I do have my 69 year old self watching most of the show. I actually get a kick out of a lot of it + like to see what’s “popular” today. And right now Kravitz is playing a Flying V solo behind flames. What’s not to like?
