And Bon Jovi, Santana, etc.
I've never watched any award show and I'm not going to start tonight!

DON'T YOU FEEL MY LEG (THE NAUGHTY BAWDY BLUES OF BLUE LU BARKER)
I once had breakfast with a multiple time grammy award winning guitar player. He said "you don't get any money for it, you still buy your coffee in McDonald's".
Personally I never had time for any award shows. If GVF win anything then it just shows what a joke it all is anyway.
I just wanted an excuse to be the Rick Springfield fanboy I am.
As a lame old white guy, I don't even know why I wasted my time on this thread.
Best American Roots Performance
KICK ROCKS Sean Ardoin
SAINT JAMES INFIRMARY BLUES - Jon Batiste
THE JOKE - Brandi Carlile
ALL ON MY MIND - Anderson East
LAST MAN STANDING - Willie Nelson
All these award shows are nothing more than marketing vehicles for the the products (artists, movies, tv shows, etc) the industry is pushing. And yes, I’m still bitter about Jethro Tull beating out Metallica for a Grammy all those years ago. That was the music biz equivalent of finding out Santa Clause isn’t real.
My guess would be that as a musician, you were curious as to what other musicians did significant work in 2018.
It's always a joy to see our fellow rock and blues artists be recognized.
Mid season premiere of "The Walking Dead" is tonight.. be interesting to see which gets better ratings.
That said.. I find the first sentence of OP's post to be pretty darn offensive. Away with this rubbish thinking.
Get over it.
Everyone hated Metallica, and it was the easiest way for 12,000 industry people to spit in their faces.
""Alice Cooper (Grammy Awards presenter): We went to the Shrine Auditorium for rehearsals that day, and that involved opening an envelope with a dummy card inside, which has a name on it. But it’s never the name of the real winner, it just gives you something to read out. I think, during rehearsal, the name on that card was Jethro Tull, so I read it out. Later that night we’re doing the real thing, and we come to this brand new category, Hard Rock/Heavy Metal. I knew that [Tull’s album] Crest Of A Knave had been nominated, but everybody in that room was certain that Metallica would get the Grammy.""
Both my Grammy's went completely senile. One tried to eat raw chicken and the candles off her cake. The other kept ice cream in her refrigerator and when she offered it to me when I stopped to visit her on a road trip it was a smelly liquidy mess.
Well take a guess at what I'm watching.
"Remember, the Grammy's are to celibate artists"
Grammy's sure has changed a lot since last I watch.
Hmmm, I hadn’t heard that one before. What kind of middle-aged white guys are you hanging out with anyway?
The ones that stay celibate I assume.
Boring white guys who need me to replace a string on their guitars.
Most folks think the Cap Snaffler or the Pocket Fisherman was the first infomercial...for my money it was the Oscar's.
I remember that being a big hit for 3 Dog Night...
