Did anyone catch Green Day on Letterman last night?  They played "Boulevard of Broken Dreams".  Sounded great as always.  It was kinda funny at the end when the drummer dove and skidded across the floor...I think Letterman was trying to make him feel stupid by asking him if he was ok, like he tripped or something.

Okay, I admit it, I like watching American Idol...It's kind of funny seeing what "America" (read: the gazillions of teeny-boppers with autodial on their cell phones) likes in terms of music....

There have been a few good voices so far-- but it remains to be seen as to whether any of these people actually have "TALENT"....

Bookies-- it's the large number of teenie boppers listening and their parents who are willing to buy anything and everything to indulge them....

BTW--you know you're old when you hear Led Zepplin on the MUZAK station at the grocery store (and you know the words to the song)!  Can you believe the amount of music from the 80s that is being played on "Oldies" stations now?!

We have a new '80's rock station in Milwaukee since September and it's getting great ratings.  It's all '80's rock all the time.  I don't listen to it too much, because they only play the songs that I've already heard a thousand times, but a lot of my friends listen to it.

80's music is making a big come back . . . thankfully!  I can't tell you the amount of times I hear John Waite, The Romantics, Thompson Twins, Howard Jones, etc.

IT'S THE BEST!

Each genre of music has it's own followers.... Obviously, some listeners have bigger pocket books when it comes to buying the music they prefer...

There are people out there who consider pop & rock music to be junk as well...

You know, one person's junk is another person's treasure....

What I have learned over the years is that the people who dole out the Grammys have nothing in common with me when it comes to taste in music.  I would not expect Green Day or any other good band to get any Grammy awards.

i agree with that brew but it would be nice to see them win.
btw, i see they have announced a north american tour.
the closest they will be to detroit is grand rapids.
might consider making the 2.5 hour drive.
