  • For all the haters out there insisting that rock was dead have finally gotten their wish. We now have true equality on the Grammy Awards , no more white performers or vocalists.
    An award to a country singer & that’s it. Rock had a good run but it’s over now. All the white irrelevant rockers need to take a final bow & disappear.
    Time waits for no one!
