  1. Holy s–t, the last time I checked Muse is NOT a metal band-LOL! Unless the band has changed their sound, which I wouldn’t know, the Grammy’s have learned nothing from the Jethro Tull debacle.

    1. Yes the Grammys are a joke. And they don’t even have the respect to air the heavy metal and rock awards during the prime time airing of the show. I’m thrilled that Ozzy won a couple of awards if it makes him happy. But for me I’ve always been a fan and always will be and couldn’t care less about the Grammys.

  2. No offense to Ozzy, but IMO, to award him Grammys for his latest album/song is nothing more than giving him a “participation award”.

    Megadeth got robbed of the “Best Metal Performance” category.

  3. Personally I didn’t like anything on patient number 9 … look I love OZZY and sabbath his first few solo albums and a few more singles here and there. There was some backroom negotiations going on with giving OZZY an award for this album….
