Huge music night in America at the 2012 Grammys. So many great performances in one night - including Adele with Rolling in the Deep.

And the Grammy results:

Adele

Adele

Adele

Adele

Adele

Adele

Yeah, that's the story - Adele takes down 6 Grammys!
Huge night for Adele! She's amazing.

Good night for the Foos as well - five for them. Adele was deserving and looked absolutely stunning. It was a good show overall. Whitney stuff was poignant and sad. I'm still shocked. :(

You're shocked that a crack head died?

A woman died you reprobate. She died suddenly, tragically and probably unnecessarily. She left an 18 year old child and a mother who are likely laid out flat in uncomprehending grief and shock. And it probably doesn't have a fig to do with crack anyway. Idiot.

I liked the Foos' acceptance speech for 'Walk'. They talked about recording it in Dave's garage, and about how the recognition meant a great deal to them because it affirmed that what mattered was learning your craft and music's source in the heart and mind rather than studio polish and computerized perfection.

It was too bad they didn't let that Chris Brown lip sync another song in honor of Whitney. That would have been sweet... they could have rolled pictures of Rihanna's black eye on the screen during.... Bobby Brown could have come out and sang background vocals....

Here's the Dave Grohl speech. Probably the best thing ever said on that stage.

She was a crack head.

She fucked up her life. She fucked up her child's life.
She fucked up her family's lives.

I guess you'd only "dislike" her if she had been high behind the wheel of a car and killed someone.

Cunt.

I'm sure lots of people will miss jpf when he's gone. His pimp, for example.

Am I the only one who thinks that Adele's music videos are better than the songs?

'Cause you've got a direct line into the Houston family and who messed up what for whom.  

I neither "like" nor "dislike" her.  For your average fully functioning human being (hint: not you)  it just clearly a sad and tragic outcome, no matter what she's done or how she contributed.  Dead serious here:  You know what's just as destructive as marrying Bobby Brown?  Taking on freaking Kiss as a life guide and eternal loyalty project when you're young and stupid.  Because it keeps you young, stunted and stupid.  Channeling the Gene Simmons persona and the ridiculous adolescent machismo and warped values system- which is exactly what you do - keeps you stunted and stupid.   And you appear to have no sense of just how fucked up, stunted and stupid you actually are.  If you weren't so freaking creepy, it would be sad.

I don't think so.  She's got her detractors and those who think she's much ado about not much.  A woman who I work with who is 30 hates her and finds her utterly boring.  I like her very much. Among other types of music, I really appreciate just her kind of singular, raw talent channeled through emotional but not over the top material.  One woman or one man standing at one microphone, virtually still, just making a beautiful sound and summoning universal emotions will always be a musical experience that resonates with a lot of people. Rolling in the Deep and Someone Like You have worn out their welcome to some degree through overexposure, but they remain significant pieces of music I think.

Very well put.

I think Set Fire To The Rain is far superior to both of them. The best pop song in a decade, as far as I'm concerned.

Wow... from this and the other post on Whitney... i'm surprised at two things:

1) Grateful Fan is a female
2) People would like to talk trash about a dead person on this site that it's FM.

(c'mon... u know some people do)

She probably had heart failure. Yes, made worse by drug abuse through the years. I didn't see the Foo's speech, thanks for the post.


Oh and thank you for reflections on a Kiss fan.


IMHO: they put on a great show... but the super fans... man... it's just all very strange and upsetting.

You write a lot, but say nothing.

You're neither intelligent, humorous, nor clever.

You bring nothing to the table.

You are simply a cunt.

A cunt spending a lot of time on a Queen discussion board.

Time for the cunt to get off his/her pedestal. You don't belong on one. You don't matter.
