Grammys 2011

Live at the 53rd Grammy Awards, Staples Center, Los Angeles, CA; February 13, 2011. Very good TV broadcast.

If the Grammys 2011 were about younger acts, then artistes such as Bob Dylan and Mick Jagger continue to show that they still matter. Sure, Dylan’s voice is shot but he is still the one and if Jagger is pushing 70, there is still a lot of energy left in him.

But first, a “Happy Birthday” greeting from Paul McCartney to Ringo Starr in NYC on July 7, 2010.

Thanks to Lincoln Park Mark for sharing the tracks.

  2. Jagger with out coming out of an egg or any other props STOLE this show. It’s called SHOWMANSHIP kids!

  3. ReV RuSSell that’s exactly right. without dancers and a staged “act” he alone commanded the crowd. I thought he’d go on forever. Why don’t the youngsters understand that you don’t need smoke machines and eggs and acrobatics to entertain a rock audience. You simply need the talents like the kind Mick Jagger possesses.

  5. I was particularly happy to see how much ALT.Country was performed..sure beats the heck out of shrieking divas and censored hip hoppers who haven`t come up with anything original in years.

  6. So right, Rev. This is one not to be ’skipped.’

  8. The video/dvd of Dylan’s performance is superb … he must have enjoyed it himself judging by the expressions on his face! Thanks for this one. Cheers.

  9. the averetts, mumford&sons & the dylan performance were the highlights of the show. These three acts did fit extraordinary good to one another!
    But you must see it; it’s not enough to listen to!

  10. Why am I not surprised that the entire “highlights” of the Grammys consists of exactly three songs by three fossils and none of the crap music done by the “winners”
