|Unfortunately 25 years ago there wasn't any heavy metal grammy award. Otherwise, they would have cleaned up LOL!|

|I'm not being vehemently negative or bitching. All I did was state my opinion on the nomination. My comments on Touch Of Evil Live were in response to Vails comment about the grammy being performance oriented rather than song oriented as such. If Priest are being nominated for performance now, why not 25 years ago when the performances were outstanding. Age has caught up with the band and that is normal hence the reason I said that some kind of achievement award for their career would be more fitting. |

|Well by just about all accounts I have read, the recent British Steel tour was the best Priest have been since the 'reunion' tour. I have never had the pleasure of seeing them live so can't comment on a personal level. I can however comment on Touch Of Evil Live, which I think isn't too bad. Bar Painkiller, the rest isn't bad and I enjoy listening to it when the mood strikes me - I do agree it's not the best live album ever, hell if they have a live SFV tour recording somewhere I'd be in heaven lol. But I also think that, if you don't like it, there's no need to be so vehemently negative about it. Same goes for anything, if you don't like something, fine, but constant bitching goes nowhere.|

|Touch of Evil Live is shit. One of the worst live albums ever. Funny how theres no live album for British Steel tour, SFV tour, DOTF tour or Painkiller tour yet Priest decide to release live albums from the tours of their most abysmal and divisive albums, Turbo and Nostradamus. I would say that Priest is playing with less prowess live nowadays than they ever have in the past, Halford overweight and limping around the stage or hunched over the teleprompter, It's ridiculous that they get nominated on those grounds now, especially for a song that was written in 1977. That makes the nomination even more worthless to me. I think some kind of longevity or life time achievement award would be more fitting for Priest. At least thats recognition of a career and takes in all of their body of work rather than a second rate rendition of a 33 year old song. |

OK, I will "jump in", as it were. And not with you, Nick although I truly understand what you are saying. I speak of these "awards".
Whether it is Grammys or "Oscars" or Emmys or whatever, the fact remains that it is a natural human trait to desire recognition for your effort. From "Employee of the Month" to the Nobel Prize, people like to be recognized. They like to receive affirmation and especially from their peers. Now, I am not trying to suggest that Rob and the boys are sitting around their mansions, sipping tea and gabbing on about the "what ifs" of this particular award! Please, take pity on this old man, folks! I am stating an opinion of observation.
You may have noticed that I unabashedly promote myself here on the Board. I talk often about my music and the various accolades I have received. I enjoy that recognition. There are even those that revel in it. And, as would make sense, there are those that would capitalize on that by pushing 'Red Carpet" events, "Award Shows" magazines and whatnot. All one need do is look at all the "Hollywood Gossip" magazines to understand how very popular this all is. The *ahem* "buying public" cannot get enough of it and the promoters at large KNOW this!
While there are those of us that continue to say these awards mean nothing and those of us that claim it would be great to see Priest win, both are right. Personally, I get it. I know that it is about being recognized for what you do for a living. For your passion. The long hours of rehearsal, the touring, the shows night after night. Writing and creating. I have yet to hear of even ONE musician that has decided to "turn down" a gold or platinum record award. Seems to me they all put them on their walls.

|OK, I'm posting in the Grammy thread, but that's cause I'm responding to J.D.'s post.|
I aint gonna write nothin bout Grammy ! I aint gonna write nothin bout Oscar ! I aint .........
Yeah, I sure noticed how different most regulars' tastes are from mine immediately when I entered this board.
Maiden, AC/DC, Van Halen .... that stuff simply bores me after one or two songs
I go for the deeeeepth of Angel and Nostra - whowee
I foresee more of my type once Nostra makes its way into progworld
And I'm sure it will - might take years - cuz it's soooooo good
Now I'm probably sounding highhanded, but I'l take the rap for that: Maybe some'o ya guys just need to get a bit older

|The nomination is for the recorded version of Dissident Aggressor from the A Touch of Evil Live album, which is a tad younger than the Death Magnetic album (correct me if I'm wrong), not the original. If anything, the people of the Grammys are acknowledging the prowess of Priest when it comes to playing live (I think?). While the song itself is 33 years old, the live version is pretty "young". But then again, that depends on what you see as Grammy-worthy music: Metallica's latest album, or Judas Priest's most recent live album. I'll go for the latter.

|Why did you say you hope Priest win then? How can you have a problem with Metallica being nominated for an album that is a year and a half old and not with priests 33 year old song?
|True. I suppose I just think that a song/album should only be nominated for the grammy awards that is directly after it's release (therefore Death Magnetics year would have been last year, that's it). I agree, the album is not very good. I found it to be rather self indulgent, look how long we can play for type stuff. But that's another story LOL.

|Well the grammys in general are pretty worthless (IMO) when the likes of Lady GaGa get shit loads of nominations for that crap people think is music.|

|I hope Priest win because I am a bigger fan of Priest than the other nominated bands. I never said I have a problem with Metallica being nominated either. I was mostly just making an observation.|

|I totally avoid the Grammy, Oscar, and all the other superficial showbiz crap.|
I simply refuse to waste my time on that sorta stuff and get annoyed.
I have my channels whereby I find the good stuff - Priest, Dream Theater, Queensrÿche, Nevermore, Jeff Loomis, SyX, Trivium, Lana Lane, Arena, and hundreds of other groups with serious, talented artists who give their music their all - and for whom it's far beneath their dignity to flash around with a*s'n'b*s.
What I really dig about the Priest guys is that they'r musicians to their fingertips. They don't sellout in any way. They do make great shows, but their music is their alpha and omega, and therefore they keep on making great music, and imo it even gets better with every album
And even their album covers are great works of art.
So no more Grammy or Oscar jive from here !

|I'm sorry, my dear. I was teasing as well. You're SO right. It IS sickening. I must say that I really do not blame the "powers that be", though. They simply push what sells. As I have mentioned previously, I blame the morons we call the "buying public". They actually pay money for this crap. They actually get in line to see "Lady Gaga" and her ilk. That is where the problem truly lies. I see it first hand when I watch the Princess' youngest and his cousins. They run around in Hollister t-shirts, prancing about while praising the virtues of Gwen Stephani and "Fergie"...... Arrrrrggggggghhhhhhhh.....................|

|"Too much pre-recorded, over-dubbed crap. There are only so many "I'm so hot, look at my ass" songs one can do before it becomes terribly redundant, no?" One of your previous comments. I totally agree with you, and I was just being silly . It's sickening who gets nominated and who the powers that be tell us we should like, even though they did not create the music themselves, or likely even write their own songs. That's the way of music today it seems. The real musicians, like Priest, seem to get overlooked time and again. I don't care. I love them anyway, and always will. I listen to their songs and am amazed at their talent. I just think it's incredible you get to create your own music too and share it live. Enjoy it! I just wish I could sing. I'm a tad jealous! |
