oh. what a night we had last Sunday at the 54th Annual Granary Awards. The glitz! The Glamour!
Where do I beginer Chaitin' with " Cyndi Lauper' s adorable mothera-. the
blankety Coldplay bracelet. --.-much too much to recap- It' s real-; is still a bit of' a blur-
But, if there' s one ' that I remember VERY clearly, it was accepting the for Best: Rock
perf' then saving the:
To me the award means a lot: because it shows that the human element of music '5 what' s
important. Singing into a and learning to play an instrument and learning to do your craft,
that' s the most: -tranport: arta: thingg For people to do... It' s not: about being perfect; Es not about
sounding absoutely corrects it' s not: about what goes on in a computer. It' s about what goes on In
here [your heart] and what goes on in here [your head]."
Not the Gettysburg Address, but hey .... ..I' m a drummer, rememeber?
Wei, me and my big mouth. Never has a second acceptance rant evoked such pokeboard
rage as roar lit' ode to analog recorders has. Kanye has me on this one. but.... let
you wanted to clarify -
I love music. I love ALL kinds of music. From Itemss to Kraftwerk; "tet: my Perkins to Prodigy. Dead
Kennedys to Deadmauf-. ---I love music. Electronic or acoustic, it doesn' t matter to me. The
act: of creating music is a beautiful gift that ALL human beings are blessed with. And the diversity of
one musician' s personailty to the next is what makes music so and. ---.human.
That' s exactly what I was referring to- The "human element:"- That thing that happens when a song
speeds up Lightly, or a goes a Ede sharp. That thing that: makes people sound its PEOPLE.
Somewhere along the he those thugs became "bad" things, and with the great advances in digital
recording technology over the years they became easiy "fixed". The end result:'? I my
op' nion..... a lot of music that sounds perfect, but lacks personally. The one who that: makes music
so Irt the first place.
And, unfortunately, some of these great advances have taken the focus off of the actual craft of
performance, Look. I am not "r' newie . I am not John Benhavn. Hei... I' m not even Josh
Groban, for that nutter. But ll try realty ******* hard so that ll don' t have to rely on anything but my
hands and my heart to play a song. I do the best that I can within wry irritations. and accept
that it sounds Bite me. Because that' s what I thrre is most . -ant- it should be real. tight?
Everybody wants somnething real-
I don' t know how to do what Skies does {though I ******* have it} but I do know that the reason
he is so loved is because he sounds like Skies, and that' s badass- We have a different process and a
different set of took, but the "craft" is equaly as ; rm sure- I -. -if it were that easy,
anyone could do it, right? tsee what I did there?)
So, don' t give me two Crown Flows and then ask me to make a speech at: your wedding, because I
might just bust into the advantages of recording t: o 2 inch tape.
Now, I thick I have to go scream at some kids to get off wry lawn.
Stay frosty.
