The 2021 Grammy awards, scheduled for January 31st without an audience, have been called off due to high Covid levels in Los Angeles.

California recorded 74,000 new cases on January 4.

It is hoped to restage them in March, still without an audience.

    No one will notice.

    Who cares. Everything’s ruined.

    The Grammys are all about marketing.

  • Greg Bottini says:

    Big deal.

  • IP says:

    Good news for musical culture, beats even the Covent Garden Tosca.

  • Greg says:

    And I was so looking forward to hearing self important people of questionable talent give vapid acceptance speeches and lecture the rest of us on environmental and social issues. Guess I’ll need to look elsewhere that evening for a dose of hypocrisy and virtue signaling.

    Yawn to the Grammy Awards. Nice pic though. Does Slipped Disc have a no nipple policy?

  • Herbie G says:

    To all of you who posted above – I wish I’d said that!
