Dave to honor Neil Young, Grammy nod?Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Random Appearances at 10:00am on Saturday, Nov 14th, 2009
Dave Matthews will be one of many artists honoring Neil Young at the 2010 MusiCare’s Person of the Year, according to Rolling Stone. Fellow Farm Aid-er Director John Mellancamp and The Red Hot Chili Peppers are among the announced acts so far.
The item also mentions that artist that often play the MusiCare tribute often play The Grammy's as well. That's RS's little way of saying that they expect Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King to score some nominations. In a year that clearly not strong in music, perhaps DMB will finally land a best Album nomination. And don't forget that the Grammy committee is the most self-serving, point-making group out there. So perhaps this is part of their mea culpa for disregarding LeRoi's passing last year and the subsequent fallout from it. Or maybe they're just finally given DMB credit for putting out a good album.
