Congrats to Grandmaster Flash

This happened a few weeks ago but there is so much music news out there it’s hard to stay on top of everything. This was too interesting to pass up.

Grandmaster Flash has just become the first DJ to win the Polar Music Prize aka Nobel Prize for Music. Other winners from this award include Led Zeppelin, Metallica, BB King and others.

Flash had this to say:

“(I accepted this) in honor of every DJ, every rapper, every graffiti artist, and every breakdancer. This thing that I did had not existed before, and I am one of many where I come from. It ended up being called hip-hop, taking the drum break from pop, rock, jazz, blues, funk, disco, R+B, and using duplicate copies of records. I would take one section and repeat it over and over again.”

Bob Dylan To Get Medal

No he’s not going Metal, but he is getting an actual medal. The Presidential Medal of Freedom to be exact. He is among 13 recipients to get this award in the spring of this year at the White House.

The award is the nations highest civilian honor to individuals who “have made especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors.”

President Obama stated in a press release

“These extraordinary honorees come from different backgrounds and different walks of life, but each of them has made a lasting contribution to the life of our Nation They’ve challenged us, they’ve inspired us, and they’ve made the world a better place. I look forward to recognizing them with this award.”

Page Will Be Knighted!

Oh boy here we go again. Louise Mensch from the The British Parliament is looking into making Jimmy Page a knight. Louise has some connection in music being that her husband Peter Mensch manages Metallica, Muse and others. She says

“Clearly there is nobody more worthy of a knighthood and I am glad to say I have gathered support from every major record label in the U.K.”

I feel like they are handing out knighthood like candy during Halloween.
