David & Aretha @ Grammy Award 1975

Tonight the 51st Grammy Awards will take place. It is not something that bothers me that much. Some of the nominations are simply outrageous (Kid Rock as best Pop Vocal Performance???). However, let me mark the occasion by looking back to the 1975 Grammys with David Bowie presenting an R'n'B award to Aretha Franklin.

You should be forgiven if thinking that things really WERE so much better back in the old days. Certainly, the r'n'b performers of today can only dream of power of the class of '75. No contest there. And Bowie is just out-of-this-world über-cool. But, admittedly, he might not pass a doping test...
