Grammy Weekend


Byline: Christian Toto, THE WASHINGTON TIMES

Grammy weekend

Never mind that the Who never earned a Grammy or that it took the Rolling Stones until 1994 to win their first - plenty of music fans will still watch the 46th annual music awards show this weekend.

The live Grammy telecast, beginning at 8 p.m. Sunday on CBS, will include a tribute to the late Warren Zevon by Jackson Browne, Emmylou Harris, Timothy B. Schmit, Dwight Yoakam, Jorge Calderon and Billy Bob Thornton.

Yes, that Billy Bob Thornton.

The telecast also will look back at the Beatles' first appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show."

Performers lined up to sing between award presentations include Prince; Christina Aguilera; George Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic; Chick Corea; Celine Dion; Earth, Wind & Fire; 50 Cent; the Foo Fighters; Alicia Keys; Martina McBride; OutKast; Sting; the White Stripes; and Beyonce Knowles.
