Welcome everybody, to the Rock and Roll Revival! Each week, I'm going to try to post something that is musical and will make you think. This is a challenge for me. My goal is to see music from different viewpoints. I've got some ideas floating around in my head,waiting to come out. So, let's get this show on the road!
This first week's a double header. As some of you may know the Grammys were held about two weeks ago. I don't usually pay too much attention to the Grammys. Largely because of my disdain for the music industry as a whole. They shamelessly promote the big names with the gimmicks and often ignore the real talent. The Grammys are a joke. Remember the Milli Vanilli and the Jethro Tull incidents? I do. This year's nominees were quite interesting and the winners surprised me. Most of them all with Robert Plant and Allison Krauss's award for their album, Raising Sand. So what do you think of the Grammys?
Here's a video from the album.
Here's my favorite tune from the album and one for Madame Z.
With the success of Robert Plant's venture with Allison Krauss, Robert opted out the possibility of a Led Zeppelin reunion tour. My next question is-should Robert Plant forge ahead and broaden his music spectrum or do a reunion tour with the possibilty of filling stadiums and making a gazillion bucks?
