2013 Grammys - The basses

Well, I think the final tally is in:

P-Basses - 4 (Fiesta Red, Jamareo's Pino, Sting's, and one more)
Jazz Basses - 2 (Mumford's yellow and one more)
Ric - 1 (Lumineer's Jetglo)
Harmony - 1 (Black Keys)
Double Basses - 4+ (Stanley, Jack White (2), and more)

I might've missed a few... But the interesting thing to me was little or nothing from other makers. No Lakies, Sad's, Lulls, Spectors, or even Gibson... Wha' happened???

Their artists didn't get asked to play on the show?

The Grammys have always been a little, umm, conservative.

There was a little more variety this year. If I remember correctly it was a clean sweep or damn near close to it for the fender P last year. I'm sure someone will fact check that thread sometime today. The show certainly wasn't as good as last years, IMHO

I thought the show last night really lacked the heart of the music industry. It felt like there were more commercials than ever before and they only handed out 11 awards live. I would like to see more live performance next year.

A great night for basses!

I'm 51, been watching the Grammy 'forever'..I thought the show was great.

I also watch my friends, mainly my age turn into their parents bitching about the artists, the music...bla bla bla.

Since when was Rock and Popular music about old dead people.

Bruno Mars and Sting killed...!

Bruno Mars and Sting were doing a tribute to an old dead person.

So were Chick, Stanley, & Kenny, in case anyone noticed that all-to-brief segment.

Yes, all- too- brief is an understatement. Stan's face looked as if he was thinking, Is that it?

Much Too brief.

the Levon tribute was my favorite.

Wasn't dissing old dead musicians, just 'my' generational friends sounding like our parents, cranky that "kids these days don't know what 'real' music is"..That's BS.

Chuck D, LL, ATrak, Barker, Morello was way better than DeaMau5, Grohl.

Anyone notice that the Marley tribute had two bass players. Sting & ??? It was pretty bad though. Thank Damien for saving it.

I just dont get Mumford & Sons... they sound like every other of the 5 billion Irish bar bands.

Sting's bass was a well worn Telecaster

I hear ya on this point--I'm about the same age and have tried to avoid complaining too much about current music trends.

But I've always thought the Grammy awards had more misses (including a bunch of "What the hell were they thinking?" moments) than astute selections.

It was kind of sad to see all of our deceased "low end" brethren. So many.

This was the only act worth watching IMO. So so so much pop, I feel very old and out of touch at 38yrs old.
