Grammys 2013: Early Winners Announced

 

Hey, here are some Grammy winners that you WON'T see on the stage tonight. Personally I am thrilled about Gotye winning two. I love that song last summer. I think it was and will continue to be an iconic breakup song!

I don't understand why they gave out Best Rock album before the awards. I guess Rock and Roll just isn't Grammy time worthy? I don't get it. NOT IN MY BOOK, Mr. and Ms. Grammy People!

If you haven't seen The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, run, even if it's just to hear Trent Reznor's Grammy winning score.

Dr. John's Locked Down is AMAZING! We got to hear him play some of that mind boggling album LIVE at the Brooklyn Academy of Music last year. It was thrilling. Sonic LOVE! I love to hear great musicians continue to expand beyond our expectations.

SO HAPPY Bonnie Raitt is keeping the great music going with Slipstream. I got to hear her live in New Orleans and she is a MONSTER guitarist.
