We have got the Brits on TV tonight, live awards show. Firstly its great as it finally has come of age, gone live and suitably edgy. Russell Brand is a hoot and insane.
They just had Brand introduce Steven Tyler and Sophie Ellis Bextor (never would have thought I would ever see that) to introduce an award that the Killers got.
What was great was to see the Red Hot Chilli Peppers perform. I have been a fan since the first time I saw and heard give it away on MTV. I am so glad they have become such a mega band as people used to say 'who?', the same used to happen with Green Day.
The other weirdness is that I have to admit I really like the Take That song that the reformed boy band did. Patience as a song is crafted and performed so well that it is impossible to ignore. It seems like it could have been pushed out in any genre and work.
Now I have to say that I never thought with my rock, blues and rap portfolio that I would ever post a youtube link of take that!
I alway sused to make a rule I woudl not buy a CD (yes old skool) if it did not have a parental advisory sticker on it. But music is music.
And what do you know they just one the first live brit vote for the best single.
