The GRAMMYs Get it Right (Kind of)

By: Andrew Vaughan

Ok, so full disclosure first: I really enjoyed the 2011 GRAMMYs. Good performances, some historic moments, and a great line up of new talent... especially Muse and Arcade Fire, who proved that rock and roll is in good and safe hands for the next ten years.

As the whole world begins to focus on The United Kingdoms capital city the evangelical music fan in me has ben reminded of the feature I wrote here a couple of years ago on a few of London’s rock and roll hotels.
