ok, i admit that i only watched 3 minutes of the grammy’s. | moby.com
i was there one year and i remember very distinctly the person who’d won ‘best polka record’ yelling ‘polka forever!!’ as a part of his acceptance speech. the 20 or 30 people in the staples center clapped perfunctorily. unfortunately the sound of 20 people clapping in a space designed to hold 18,000 is kind of depressing.
I didn’t watch any of it. Barrett attended. He wants to work within the music biz to champion music that he feels should be supported. I think that’s great and admire it, while preferring to sit here and play guitar.
