I knew I hated them..
I try not to use the word hate freely. That way when I say it I feel I really mean it. People say "I hate traffic". The next day they are back in it.
I hate the Grammy Awards. As much as I LOVE music I realized years ago the # of trophies on your shelf has NOTHING to do with talent or how good a record is. Its all subjective I realize that.
I think the real head scratcher came in 1988 when Jethro Tull won for best hard rock performance beating out (for one..) Metallica's ..and justice for all. That is the first time i realized that the wrong people are voting on this stuff. Now mind you the "people choice awards" are no better cuz craptastic bands like Creed, Nickleback and Linkin Park win these awards Who the F" buys these records?! They sell hand over fist and i know NO person that owns these "hot" cds.
The most stunning part about the Grammys is that the people that vote don't even need to LISTEN to the cds. How in the HELL does this work?! They just vote based of a name. That means the 65 year old guy that says the Killers are the best new artist might just ask his 13 year old daughter "hey who is the coolest of these bands"?
I know what you are saying "don't watch". Trust me..I won't.
on a side note Sigur Ros tonight in boston...reviews to follow.
