The Best Part of the 2014 56th Grammy Awards -- Paul and Ringo

The Beatles reunion that was long anticipated and hoped for, but never confirmed until the night of the show, during the telecast of the 56th Annual Grammy Awards was Ringo Starr joining his old bandmate Sir Paul McCartney to perform Paul's composition "Queenie Eye." The rest of the Grammys was somewhat of a hot mess, with mash-ups between the no-class-ic-Robin Thicke and the truly classic rock band, Chicago. Nevertheless, the only redeeming feature of the night was The Beatles. It sounds like something an old-timer would say, but 50 years from now, no one will know or care who half of "this year's" winner are, what they've been doing or where they'll end up. The Beatles, Chicago, and bands of true class and character...are always worth seeing again. Justin Timberlake, Miley Cyrus, and even dear young Taylor Swift, well, you'll just have to wait until 2064 to see who had staying power and who was a flash in the pan. Bruno Mars is the only guy who's got a flying chance of staying interesting to this year's teenagers and young (and mature) adults in the decades ahead.
