(Lack of) Grammy ApologyPosted by Jake Vigliotti in Band Member News at 12:04pm on Friday, Feb 13th, 2009
The Grammy's said... well, I'm not sure what they said. According to their press release, which you can read here, they reason: "Unfortunately we are unable to include all of the talented and wonderful people within the allotted timeframe." So in a three-hour show, it was impossible to shave 30 seconds off some intro by someone, or heaven-forbid drop a 30 second commercial to squeeze in a few more fallen musicians?
As we stated previously, the decision to exclude Roi was made in the pre-production stage of the program. So the 'unable to include' was made about a month or so before the Grammy's even aired. So pretty much the Grammy's are saying, 'We left him out on purpose, it wasn't a mistake.' Now you feel better?
