I always got the impression that the Grammy's were an excuse to parade thier latest one-hitters (the ones that they don't smoke, that is!) out for the watching consumer hordes to further the sales before these people self destruct on thier own fame. The majors have to get the willies when they think that bands that are ignored can generate a whole career without them via the Net. Napster,, and even mIRC channels are mp3 paradises where I find some great music...

(quick plug: Erotic Suicide... great phones when I play them... check 'em out!)

I work in Radio at a station that lets me play "80's spandex/hair metal/buttrock", so I get a lot of label reps calling/bugging the hell outta me demanding to know why I'm not playing thier latest Rap-Rock disc. I tell them the same thing everytime. "It's not gonna last one hit if it gets played at all!" I live in the South and bands like Skynyrd, Zeppelin, and Rush are the norm here. I get good calls when I play Talisman, Danger Danger, and Symphony X (tho I play them very rarely.. it wears the listeners out! "Too many notes" for some LOL)

A sure sign of change to me will be when King's X gets a grammy... and I don't mean a posthumous lifetime achievement award!
