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

    Gary Clarke Jr won a couple for ‘This Land’ which was pretty cool.

    I haven’t watched in years, but pretty much always have a look at who won. Sometimes even go check them out.

    Cheers,
    Geoff

    That was disappointing. I could’ve listened to Bonnie for a few more songs. Didn’t care for Gary’s performance.

    That part when he screamed like a parrot, that was interesting.

    I'm a cordcutter. Never going back to TV, I'm not missing anything.

    They were just fantastic, weren't they?

    I loved them both.

    Bonnie Raitt was awesome. Most of the opening of the show was awesome with Alicia Keys, who is just a brilliant performer. I'm 65 years old and I appreciate all kinds of music. And I have to say I see and hear a lot of great music here tonight at the Grammys.

    Gary Clark jr. just played a great song, a new song, that a few may not have heard, but you may want to check into. Also check his inspiration for this song...

    I recently watched "Rock and Roll Inventions" on the Smithsonian channel. First 30 minutes were good, pickups, pedals, amps, then they spent the last 30 minutes on 'sampling' which involved almost exclusively Hip Hop. So now if you can sample others music or sounds, you are a musician.

    My son got really upset with me when he was playing something he expected me to hate (Rap which I usually don't like) and I told him I liked it - whatever it was, it was pretty good.

    When my son was about 14, he was helping me install a pretty powerful stereo system in my van (this would have been about 1987)... and afterwards I took him to the record store (yeah, they still sold records) and he bought a CD of Jimi Hendrix (no idea how he heard about Jimi) and on the drive home I cranked it up and my son kept snickering and laughing. When I asked him what was so funny he said "who ever heard of playing this kind of music really loud?" He thought only rap music got played loud ... so I had to begin his edumacation

    My 27 yr old daughter asked me why I wasn't watching the Grammys tonite

    I told her a) I don't like hip hop and b) I hardly know anyone performing. Like the OP, I saw Tyler the clown perform and I decided to leave the room.

    Now get off my lawn!

    Don’t let the Grammys define what “Today’s Music” is. There is a ton of great music being made out there, in whatever styles appeal to you. It just isn’t necessarily invited to the glitzy events. But that said, Tool won Best Metal Performance. It’s gonna be alright.

    I had no idea who that group was or who they were, but I sat and watched and I thought it was a very enthralling performance.

    Lenny did have an album cover with a white Flying V
    Maybe this could be the confusion?

    When did the Grammy’s ever represent “today’s” music? It has always been part of the marketing arm of the major labels.

    If anything, with the advent of self publishing by artists, it’s never been less relevant.

    At least the video had one moment of music instead of just computers and soft porn..
