>>>Congrats to Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor (right) on his Golden Globe trophy [UPDATE: and Oscar Nomination] for Best Original Score for The Social Network! The recognition followed news that Reznor snagged scoring duties for the upcoming American remake of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. (The Swedish original has been sitting in my Netflix streaming queue for months!) With this victory Reznor takes another opportunity to slag the music biz:
"Not to be disrespectful, but the weight of a Grammy feels much less important than the film side of this. The music business has very much done everything it can to lessen the weight and importance of music as art."
We should be reading any day now about Trent becoming a first time father.
>>> Speaking of music industry (ir)relevance, Ramones, whose principal members are all dead, will receive a lifetime achievement Grammy at the 2011 ceremony. Too little, too late, NARAS.
After the jump, grab news about Pearl Jam, Flaming Lips, Sex Pistols, and the surprise Archers of Loaf reunion,
