PiercingMetal Thoughts: So it looks like both Ozzy Osbourne and Brandi Carlisle took home two awards each in the Rock Categories. I am stoked that Ozzy took home both “Best Rock Album” and “Best Metal Performance” especially after his most recent news. If you missed that, he just announced the cancellation of his European Tour and said his team was working on an alternative to his having to travel all around the world to perform since his body just can’t do it any more. He’s essentially retired from touring even if he didn’t use those exact words in his announcement. The “Patient Number 9” album is a solid one and he said he will keep on recording as his voice is better than ever. Nice to hear. Now Brandi Carlisle is not an artist that I’ve listened too all that much and oddly enough she is known more for a variety of different styles that includes Rock so it was interesting to see her “Broken Horses” tune take home “Best Rock Song” and “Best Rock Performance”. To me this has more of a Southern Rock vibe to it but they don’t differentiate that with the Grammys. I don’t know too much about the Alternative artist Wet Leg but congratulations to them on their win in both of their categories. What do you readers think about this? Chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you the next time around.
