Is This List True About The Grammy Awards?

January 29, 2014

Today, I ran across a Four Pins article tackling  The Real Problem With Macklemore. In the comments section, I noticed a post by someone named Fuzz.  Well, I noticed this within Fuzz’s post, a list of  legendary musicians who never won a Grammy.

List of artists who never won a Grammy

Thinking it worthy of a Facebook discussion, I copied and uploaded the list to Facebook.

Also, I asked, “Is this true about The Grammys?”

is this true about the grammys

I shall zoom in on the answers.

Grammys Question

The list rings mostly true.  After nearly four decades, Led Zeppelin finally won a Grammy in 2014.  The rest on the list never won a Grammy.

True enough, an award opens doors and sell more products.  Still, winning doesn’t necessarily prove actual talent. Plus after winning a Grammy, some artists never gain the popularity they once had.  This happened to Terrence Trent D’Arby.  After winning a Grammy in 1988 for Best R&B Vocal (Male),  his popularity nosedived and never recovered.   (As I appreciated his music, I always thought Mr. D’Arby was over-hyped.  Yet, that’s me.

The list proves, seeing the many legends who never receive the award, one should avoid taking The Grammy Awards seriously.  If anything, you and the rest of the world gain the opportunity  to witness some people’s terrible taste in music.
