    Despite the apeal of their music, unfortunately, I can't listen to them because of their lyrics. But then again if the lyrics had been too good they might only have sold 20% of the records they did. Too much 'say almost nothing - let the listener project themselves onto our songs' going on for my liking. It's not genuine communication. It's more a kind of lucrative manipulation. But, I stress, I am not calling for Coldplay to be made illegal.

    I'm curious -- what's the appeal? Coldplay leaves me very, very cold.

    they're a good live band and know how to tap into the american market, something that a lot of english bands have failed to do. i'm not a big fan myself but i can see why people vote for them in these awards. imo muse are a far better band but they don't get any credit in the states.

    re U2 - should've quit a long long time ago.

    Carrie Underwoods' girl guitar player is hot looking and whipped out a great solo, best guitarist of the evening by FAR. She's from Australia here is her my space:

    Other grammy comments:

    Poor Stevie Wonder, having to put up with the Jonas Bros. they suck. If he knew how they looked, he wouldn't have let that happen. That lead singer wouldn't know R & B if it bit him on the ass.

    Nice to see the Dirty Dozen Brass with Professor Long Hair doing "Go to the Mardi Gras" I didn't even mind the rappers throwing it down with Feet Don't Fail Me Now.

    Liked the use of the USC Marching Band by Radio Head, wonder if any of those college dudes got lucky afterwards?

    You want to wake me up when the Robert Plant/ Allison Krouse album stops playing. You think she's squeezing his lemons?

    If Jennifer Hudson is singing at the church, I'm converting to Baptist, that voice is truly awesome. Shame about her families deaths, it's a wonder she can still perform.

    Robert Plant looks like an old woman that forgot to take her estrogen. Great recording though with Allison Krauss.

    Loved the Radiohead performance. Couldn't really understand a single word he said, but there was still something captivating about it.

    What kind of idiots would vote for Coldplay's Viva la Vida as best song when they are currently involved in litigation and law suits for copyright violation for stealing that song? Satriani should call them up and ask for his trophy.

    If you missed the Radiohead bit, here it is.

    I really enjoyed it.
    I've always liked Radiohead, but that Kid A album put me off them for a while...
