  1. G.M. is a humble genius who deserves every award bestowed upon him.He’s long since proven that great writing ,serious scholarship,and Rock & Roll are not strange bedfellows …But the solemnity of this ceremony(or what was shown in this clip) was so at odds with the spirit of Rock that it reminded me of Dylan’s The Locust Sang.
