2013 MusiCares Lineup

This should be very interesting: Next month's annual MusiCares ceremony held in LA, in which Bruce is honored as Person Of The Year, will see many artists, young and old, paying tribute to him; Alabama Shakes, John Legend, Ben Harper, Jim James, Elton John, Emmylou Harris, Jackson Browne, Tom Morello, Natalie Maines, Sting, Patti Smith, Mavis Staples, Mumford & Sons, Eddie Vedder, and Neil Young (!). Fellow Jersey boy, Jon Stewart, will be hosting. The event will take place a few days before the Grammys, and Bruce is nominated for three awards in the rock categories (Best Rock Album for Wrecking Ball, Best Rock Song & Rock Performance for We Take Care Of Our Own). But being shut out for Album Of The Year is a travesty.
