Today’s 'lyric' quotation was taken from Bowie’s introduction to Aretha Franklin when he presented her with the Grammy for Best R & B Female Vocalist in 1975. (See picture)
In a nod to that moment, the same words were used by Jonathan Barnbrook in his introduction when he accepted the Grammy for Best Recording Package this evening.
Barnbrook also had this to say of Bowie: “He had this very rare quality of getting people to produce their best work, but doing it in a way that was wonderful, charming, a great, great enjoyable ride, and I want to thank him for that.” Speaking about the power and importance of music, Barnbrook offered the following observation: “I've seen how important what musicians do for people is. It's there when you're born, it's there when you get married, it's there when you die at your funeral. So we should celebrate that, absolutely.” You can watch Donny McCaslin’s touching speech, when (along with the ★ band), he accepted the Best Rock Performance gong on behalf of David Bowie, here: http://smarturl.it/BestRockPerGrammys17
In a backstage interview later, Donny spoke of the sheer joy expressed by Bowie during the creation of ★ - That is a joy that will live forever in the grooves of ★ #59thGrammyAwards#Grammys2017#BowieGrammyAwards#BowieBlackstar#GRAMMYs#Blackstar
