Today in Music News: Taylor Swift Can't Sing, Beyonce, Neil Young, Kanye West, Willie Nelson
- Taylor Swift wins big at Grammys; shows that although she's a decent enough songwriter (for the tween set) she really can't sing, at least not live, sans studio production wizardry. Never has a multi-platinum-selling vocalist sounded so flat as when Swift duetted with Stevie Nicks, a woman, who y'know, can actually sing! Oh well, at least the truly gifted Beyonce kicked ass and was honored.
- Red Hot Chili Peppers, Wilco, Ozomatli, Dave Mathews, Norah Jones, Lucinda Williams, Elvis Costello, Neko Case and many more honor Neil Young at Los Angeles Convention Center.
- Kanye West displays his crazy side--again--with rambling, barely coherent, all-caps blog post.
- Willie Nelson cancels show after band mates are busted for marijuana, and, damn, this is great, moonshine!
