| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

Just in time for the Grammys, the show's longtime executive producer is publishing a tell-all, behind-the-scenes book about music's biggest night. ...

The new book by Ken Ehrlich, executive producer of the Grammy Awards for 30 years, is called At the Grammys: Behind the Scenes at Music's Biggest Night.

The press release says: "Ken Ehrlich has seen it all. From Barbara Streisand to Bono, he has dealt with every major supertalent in music, making key decisions, solving problems, and putting on the most spectacular awards show in the history of television. For the first time, he tells his story. He was there when Aretha Franklin stepped in for an ailing Pavarotti to perform “Nessun Dorma” at the 1998 Grammys; when Ricky Martin electrified the audience with “La Copa De La Vida” at the 2000 Grammys, his first appearance on nationwide American television; and when some of rock’s superstars — including Bruce Springsteen, Dave Grohl, and Elvis Costello — performed a blistering version of “London Calling” in tribute to Joe Strummer, shortly after his death in 2002."

It's due on shelves Feb. 10.
