RNR News and Notes

Back on January 28th  (seems like 22 years ago, doesn't it?), two days after their awards ceremony, the GRAMMY's hosted a massive Prince tribute concert featuring performances by Beck, Foo Fighters, St. Vincent, Coldplay’s Chris Martin, Earth Wind & Fire, Mavis Staples, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Usher, and Juanes - plus former Prince collaborators like Morris Day and the Time, Susanna Hoffs, and Prince’s old band the Revolution
