Final Grammy Thought

The Grammys have been trying to shake their fuddy-duddy status for years, changing their rules and making sure that the awards broadcasted will be for artists who reach a younger demo.

How amusing it is then that with one award, Herbie Hancock's win for Album of the Year, all of that youth outreach will seemingly go out the window, and the recording academy will once again be thought of as the curmudgeons who gave Jethro Tull a Best Metal award instead of Metallica (in 1989) and gave Steely Dan the Album of the Year award instead of Eminem (in 2000). It's sort of funny, if you ask me.
