Off topic: I've had the Grammys on in the background for an hour and ten minutes (I missed the first 20 minutes), and it has been the most boring show ever--I almost turned it off after Jennifer Lopez and her husband did a sticky sweet duet--until just now. They woke up with a vengeance with, of all things, a tribute to Southern rock--an Allman Brothers medley that segued into Lynyrd Skynyrd's Sweet Home Alabama. Even the crowed was on their feet cheering.If there's a re-run, don't miss it. Lynyrd Skynyrd and Gretchen Wilson on Sweet Home Alabama were especially great. Here's who they were: Gretchen Wilson, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Dickey Betts, Elvin Bishop, and Keith Urban. Tim McGraw too. The only one I recognized from the old days was Dickie Betts.
Update: Green Day (American Idiot) rocks. Second best moment. And not just because they are an anti-Bush band. It's like watching the Energizer Bunny. With pyrotehnics.
