 $)CThe video/photo montage of past greats left out Etta, presumably because
of the duo tribute to her by Bonnie Raitt and Alicia Keys - which was
really good.

I also enjoyed the Paul McCartney jam, with everyone tradin' twos on "The
End". Besides Paul, it was Joe Walsh, Dave Grohl, Bruce Springsteen, and
two of McCartneys side men (Rusty Anderson and Brian Ray). Joe Walsh did
his Funk 49 lick on one go around, and they all kept it together. ;-) It's
about 4 minutes into this clip.

The video has been pulled apparently.

I also heard that Springsteen did a number from his new cd.  I will get to
him (and the Beach Boys) at jazz fest this year ... along with a lot of
blues players.

I would like to see the Grammy organization put the old categories back in
I don't expect that will happen.

Bonnie Raitt and Alicia Keys Grammy's 2012 performance in tribute to Etta

The Grammys remembered Don Cornilius as well.

Tedeschi Trucks Band thanked several late legends, Pinetop Perkins, Etta
Hubert Sumlin and Honeyboy Edwards, after winning Best Blues Album. (Even
though we didn't get to see that part on TV!) And Devon Allman posted a
pic on
facebook of Gregg Allman with his Lifetime Achievement Award. The Beach
sang too with help from others. 10ish yrs ago I was alone in a green room
Brian Wilson, Christopher Cross, and Paul Shaffer. I sat on a sofa and
with Brian Wilson, who could hardly hold a conversation. He seemed to make
through the song last night.

Adele swept the Grammys, as expected. Shes amazing.

They paid tribute to those who passed. They included Pinetop, Hubert, and
Honeyboy  ">  then Jennifer Hudson sang I Will Always Love You. Very few
could have pulled that off. She did.

OK, I know that Susan and Derek won for blues album, and Levon won for
Americana album.  Also heard that Rebirth got a Grammy.  Anything else of
interest go on?
