A Really Late Post On The Grammy Awards

So, I'm nearly a week late on this one. My bad.

I'd like to nominate the Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl for the Best Grammy Acceptance Speech Ever.


Seriously. How f**kin' cool are these guys?

Okay, I know that this site is primarily dedicated to politics and media -- but I didn't get a chance to say anything earlier this week about the Grammys Awards this past Sunday evening. There were some good performances, and the tributes to Etta James and Whitney Houston were nice as well.

But, the Foo Fighters acceptance speech for Best Rock Performance (for their song "Walk") really spoke to me.

All to often these day, pop music dominates the airwaves of radio and music television channels (but, not MTV) -- but it is a pop music that is overly-sampled, auto-tuned and largely unoriginal-sounding music.

The music industry needs more successful 'organic' artists like Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters to step-up and say, "Look -- you can make great music without having to use tons of computers to alter it."
