REASON 4, 386 THE GRAMMYS SUCK A**

Posted on 28 January 2006 by Caryn Rose (1)

While this was one part astonishingly good news (backed with one part ‘please let it not be an embarassment for him), this below gives one pause:

Ron Roecker, a spokesman for the Recording Academy, wouldn’t confirm that the reunion is on the Grammy-night schedule, which already includes an all-star tribute to Sly and the Family Stone. The tribute — featuring John Legend, Maroon 5, will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas and Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, among others

THIS IS THE BEST YOU COULD COME UP WITH FOR A TRIBUTE TO SLY STONE, MUCH LESS SLY STONE’S COMEBACK??! You are simply NOT trying hard enough. Maroon 5? WTF??!

    the grammys could not anger me more on an annual basis. It only bothers me more when they actually pretend to notice an artist like Sly Stone. Could they please stop pretending so that the youngins are not duped. Do us all a favor and just keep the playlist limited to Mariah Carey and Jessica Simpson, et. al or whoever the morons are listening to during these dreadful pop years.

    oh and btw, that guy named springsteen, who changed my life about about thirty years ago and who I have followed around this world, needs to stay away also. I could not be more disappointed that he has agreed to play this year. I have travelled thousands of miles and crossed many hilltops to watch him lay it down and I could not be more disappointed to see him on this year’s roster. It is quite simple. Please do not lend any credence to this silly little award show that couldn’t begin to describe the first thing about music. He rightfully and forcefully stood up against George W. Can he do the same against this nonsense as well? Spare us Bruce. I am proud to have supported nearly your every move and am just mystified with the grammy stuff.

    Sorry for the rant, but I am enraged by the whole thing. Sly Stone once cancelled a show at MSG about 15 mins before game time because the “vibes weren’t right”. They sure ain’t right here.

    We need another riot going on………….
