    acceptance speech. Wish I had a link. We will be talking about this tomorrow. I have no computers in my studio, I'm very old school so it really hit home with me.

    I've said it before, when it comes to music, perfection is over rated.

    Agree, totally. He said it like it is - the human element, and not computer perfection, is what's important. Well, said, Dave.

    yup

    and my wife and family just heard me say the same 4 hrs ago when we drove home from dinner, listening to the who's album " a quick one"

    mistakes are real... modern music isn't

    Definitely a shout out against all the overproduced, auto tuned, crap that's most popular in today's music scene. They cut him off at the end. Guess the higher ups didn't care for his speech so much.

    Also was them performing with deadmau5 and someone else a joke? I remember seeing talk about their collab but never seen it. Not that I'm disappointed, just wondering.

    It was a great speech and he took it right to the edge of criticism without being a jackass about it. Big Dave Grohl fan here.

    He's passionate about keeping it real. Might be one of the most level headed dudes (Of course i don't know him.. Just know all the doc's i've seen and interviews I've read) in music who's been through a lot, seen a lot and really earned what he's achieved.

    Loved that speech. I'm sure anything "The grammy's" release regarding cutting anyone off will be "Due to time constraints". While there is merit, I'm sure none of the suits running that show cared to hear him slam the computer perfection sitting in the audience, up for the VAST majority of those awards.

    Agreed. Informed and passionate criticism, without histrionics, is a potent tool. Wish that was understood all the way up the chain.

    ‎"To me this award means a lot because it shows that the human element of making music is what's most important. Singing into a microphone and learning to play an instrument and learning to do your craft, that's the most important thing for people to do. It's not about being perfect. It's not about sounding absolutely correct. It's not about what goes on in a computer. It's about what goes on in (your heart) and it's about what goes on in (your head)." - Dave Grohl

    btw... he's giving the best grammy speech in years... about how people make music, not computers.... and they cut him off with LMFAO??? i almost threw up....

    I was in the tent outside at LA Live, they did "Jet" to warm up and then did "Walk", I was really close and the audience was LOUD. They rocked. As soon as they were done we left and I'm on the train ride home now.
