The Jethro Tull incident and six other Grammy mistakes

    There’s a certain segment of the population unwilling to let go of the fact that Jethro Tull received the Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance in 1988. Granted that Metallica probably deserved the award; the band members have said as much without even bothering to give Jethro Tull the experience props. Good sense would dictate that Lars and Jimbo did realize some time in the nineties that they were, in fact, Metallica and had a standing army of tattooed, bemulleted warriors ready to kill for them on command. Who cares about the lousy Grammy? Apparently Adam Brown, who has topped his list of the Grammy’s seven deadly sins with the Metallica snub. Making a list of Grammy mistakes is akin to shooting fish in a barrel. Rather than chronicling the predictable losses of musicians like Public Enemy, Nirvana, and Radiohead, how about trying to compile a list of the times the Grammy voters actually got it right?
