SGR’s All Time Favorite Grammy Moment

This should come as no surprise to readers of this SGR blog. I do remember the performance being a surprise though. Of course, there would be a mention of Joe Strummer in the artists we lost in the past year but the performance was not mentioned beforehand. The excitement of The Boss barking out “This is for Joe.” A great band as well charging into those opening chords of “London Calling.”  Proving it takes 4 frontmen to equal a Joe Strummer.  We have Bruce Springsteen,  Stevie Van Zandt (who does a nice Mick Jones solo),  Elvis Costello, and Dave Grohl.  Tony Kanal, from No Doubt, on bass and PeteThomas on drums.  You know they are feeling it and Joe is legend.

I don’t think there will ever be a Grammy moment to top this but I keep watching with one eye closed and just by the reflection in the mirror in the other room.

The Grammys are tonight on CBS. You Can play at home with this scoresheet –

It is wonderful to be able to talk music with you. "Go ahead you're on the air..." Read more:
