    Seems like gay orgy should be moved to Gossip.

    Randy, seriously, I usually get along with you just fine, but STFU. Whether you or MJA realize it Grace Jones is one of the most iconic performers of the 80s. A woman who had not released an album in two decades and rarely ever performed in the last 20 years suddenly reappeared still looking amazing for her 60s, still sounding fantastic, still making great music with producers like Tricky and still putting on captivating live shows that had little in the way of spectacle other than couture costumes, massive wind fans and lighting. But that's all she needs because unlike so many other (no doubt talented) performers today, she had and still has incredible stage presence. When this woman steps on stage she owns it. I saw her at the Bowl this past summer and was pretty far away but it didn't matter. It could have been an intimate 1,000 person venue because she is so damn magnetic; she just draws you in.

    AND, the other reason we're upset is that while she's been playing the UK, Europe and Australia almost constantly for the last two years she's played a total of TWO shows in the US -- Hollywood Bowl and NY. That's it. This was what looked to be a rare opportunity to see Grace in the US. So just shut up and let us whine, God damn it! There is so much bitching, moaning and hand wringing on this bloody site. FOR ONCE, it's fucking justified.

    For you, try and imagine if the Yeah Yeah Yeahs went away for two decades, suddenly re-emerged, released an album that was just as strong as the stuff they released in their early career, toured all over the world except the US, then got added to the Coachella lineup and then got removed. I imagine that you would not care for that. Now just go smoke an electric cigarette and chill and let the rest of us take care of this thread. And MJA, shouldn't you be reading about Constitutional law or something?
    you are fucking delusional. and ignorant.

    From these posts and the grandeur with which he discusses Grace Jones's musical career, I'd HAVE to say yes.

    No. There are also Grace Jones fans, several of which have contributed to this thread.

    gossip would be a good plan b for the gay orgy, me thinks.

    (and GJ was dumped because she is black and a gay icon...the rare double whammy. it's true because the company that owns GV hates them both....i read it on the interwebs)

    I think we deserve an explanation for this...

    my biggest excitement over grace jones was hearing (after the fact) how "mind blowing" her set was @ coachella and how many converts she has..

    Whats "Ignorant and Delusional" are judgements made with out knowing what your talking about..

    I took friends who werent neccessarily fans of Grace Jones to the Hollywood bowl and they were blown away. It really comes down to her stage show. Costume after Costume (I think she changed 8 times?) and her exceptional band.. Let me dumb it down for you, she had a amazing session band (including her son) and they really excellent..Sly and Robbie produced her most popular albums and the shit was funky..

    So yeah haters are haters but what i thought would speak for itself would have been her performance itself, which is really what its all about. Right?

    so jew face..at least we got to see her once!..failure to convert doesnt mean a failure trying..

    Side note: I think the reason she bailed is because her set is really large and they probobly wanted to put her in the sahara or the outdoor , which from all accounts just wouldnt fit. Thats my guess.. No i might actually get to see LCD , Fever Ray, and PiL.. With Grace i would have missed one of those acts for sure..

    I had not heard of her before, but after hearing some tracks, it seems like it would have been a fun act. Sorry to those of you who were looking forward to her.

    EDIT: After listening to even more, I am bummed about this. It sounds like it would have been really fun in the hot desert.
