Wish I could have seen this at the Grammy's

56th GRAMMY Awards - Show
Wouldn't it be fantastic if the Grammy awards were more about music and less about spectacle?

Oh, there were some musical high points that did not involve robots or high wire acts. Lorde's performance of "Royals" was stellar. I loved Ringo's photograph and enjoyed seeing him and McCartney on stage together.

I just wish some of the artists who aren't necessarily Top 40 pop stars would get some love as well, instead of just being announced before the ceremony got underway. 

For example, I find it fascinating that Herb Alpert won a Grammy for best pop instrumental performance. I also found it fascinating that Herb Alpert is still alive!

Other winners that didn't get any love on TV include Edie Brickell and Steve Martin for best Americana album, Ziggy Marley for best reggae album, and my personal favorite, best blues album.

That went to kind of an odd couple--Ben Harper along with Charlie Musselwhite, who is about to turn 70 and is a hell of a harp player. If you like the blues, you should check out their album "Get Up!"  

Or you could always go buy that Daft Punk record.
