Last night (February 8) in Los Angeles, Bruce Springsteen was the subject of an all-star tribute at the GRAMMY MusiCares Person Of The Year ceremony. Artists from all genres and generations stepped up to the mic to pay tribute, choosing songs from all phases of the New Jersey legend’s career.
The GRAMMYs and rock and roll have always had an uneasy relationship. While some iconic rockers like Bruce Springsteen and U2 have shelves full of GRAMMYs, many others have never won a single one. Proud members of the overlooked GRAMMY club include The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Kinks, Jimi Hendrix, ZZ Top and Lynryd Skynyrd.
Two days before the GRAMMYs, MusiCares is honoring Bruce Springsteen, but it isn’t for his 40 years in the music industry.
During tonight’s fundraiser, airing on all major networks, Taylor Swift will perform a new song about a brave young boy that she cowrote with his mother.
