Bruce Springsteen: Free Speech
The annual MusiCares Person of the Year ceremony, tied in with the Grammy Awards, is an industry event, but the Recording Academy is making an effort to let fans see what goes on. Tributes to James Taylor (2006), Neil Young (2010) and Barbra Streisand (2011) have been made available for public consumption.
We don’t know if this year’s ceremony honoring Bruce Springsteen will follow suit, but he’s not waiting to find out. The Boss’s website already has the night’s video tribute to him as well as his 12-minute acceptance speech.
Last week’s charity event included musical tributes from Neil Young, Jackson Browne, Elton John and many others.
