Top ten non-Grammy winning musical phenomena

With the Grammys wrapping up Sunday night, we’ve had a moment or two to reflect on the talent that has received those awards.

Deserving or not, if they made a splash last year, then they probably were awarded a Grammy. Not to say that Taylor Swift didn’t deserve her Grammys, but it’s giving way to more popular folks getting the awards, rather than those who actually deserve to win, strictly based on talent.

I was given a link to this nifty website, which points out the top ten musical talents who never received recognition by the recording academy.

The top ten:

  • 1. The Who
  • 2. Bob Marley
  • 3. Diana Ross
  • 4. Led Zeppelin
  • 5. Grateful Dead
  • 6. Queen
  • 7. Jimi Hendrix
  • 8. Lynyrd Skynyrd
  • 9. The Doors
  • 10. Buddy Holly

Are you surprised at this list? Some of the most prominent names in Rock N Roll today are on this list. They built the foundation for which rock music was made and yet, were never recognized by the recording academy. Yet they grant four Grammys to Taylor Swift. It just doesn’t make sense to me.

Your thoughts?
