GRAMMY MUSEUM OPENS UP THIRD FLOOR at LA LIVE TRIBUTE TO THE LATIN AMERICAN ARTIST AWARDS
Los Angeles (Perfect Music Today) 11/27/19/–The always innovative Grammy Museum held a champagne reception This week for the opening of the third floor wing which is dedicated to the Latin American version of the awards. PERFECT MUSIC TODAY was there enjoying the libations from Piper Heideseck Champagne, and also experiencing the displays as well as the interactive music room showcasing the gramophone from the early days to the present. The video of Lady Gaga in this room is a must see even if you are not a fan of the dynamic songstress.
There are costumes galore, hats, shoes, guitar and plenty of videos to feast on from the early days of the awards. We particularly enjoyed the Lifetime Achievement Award Room which has every artist listed from Bing Crosby in the first year to the current day, and it certainly gives you a good indication on how the members have changed their voting style over the years. All the big names are there of course but there are some glaring omissions such as the Byrds and Crosby, Stiils and Nash and almost all of the late fifties/early sixties balladeers and crooners. I wonder if politics is the reason or just human error on the board’s part.
We also enjoyed the display that showed how the actual Grammy award Is made in a workshop in Colorado from a company of craftsmen who have had the contract for well over forty years. Each individual award takes 15 man hours to produce, and it just has to be a prized possession of everybody who is lucky or talented enough to get one.
