So this is NOT a post about the quality of new music. It's a case of me watching the Grammys last night, and realizing that they were really drawing heavily upon the older musicians from previous generations. Now, I enjoyed Pink. I think John Legend is fantastic. This is no knock on these guys, but was just wondering... is there enough contemporary star power to carry a show like this? Think about it... LL Cool J hosted. Appearances were made by Smokey Robinson, Queen Latifa, Ozzy, and Julia Roberts. Featured performers included Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Metallica, Stevie Wonder, Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Lindsey Buckingham, Kris Kristoferson, etc. So yeah.. when folks are all gone.. what then? Does the Grammys need the old school?
