Piercing Ken Thoughts: So what did you think of the winners list? Were some of your favorites the ones going home with the trophy last night? It looks like Taylor Swift won quite a few of them and while I have never really listened to her music have come to know that she is a very talented musician. Some friends had taken their younger family members to her shows and said they are spectacles. Perhaps I need to start doing the occasional concert report on “The Chronicles” to get some practice on other types of music. I have to admit that I find it a tad insulting to have something like five Rap/R&B categories to dish out trophies for while Rock gets lumped into Pop and awards artists that aren’t Rock at all.
Oh and speaking of Rock, yesterday we learned of the nominees for the 2019 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductions. You should check out the post I did for this stuff over on PiercingMetal by clicking HERE.Okay that’s all I have for this one. Chime in down below with what you thought about the broadcast – We didn’t watch it at all.
