Adele wins BBC best live act without playing a gig!!

No doubt some of you have read my recent post about Adele.  I don’t get her and cannot understand why she is currently smashing every record known to may with her new album “25.”

I personally find Adele boring, bland and safe but it takes all sorts and thankfully we all enjoy different things.

I’m not a fan of the annual industry back slapping that goes on in awards season any more than I am a fan of Adele.  Sometimes something happens that just makes you shake your head in despair.

Last night saw the second version of the BBC’s music awards and we saw Adele crowned the “best live act.”  Can someone explain how this has happened because Adele has not played a live show during the course of this year.  In fact Adele hasn’t toured since 2011, so please someone please explain how the f**k this was allowed to happen.

I have seen well over 300 live performances this year and one thing is for certain, every single one of them was better than the gigs Adele didn’t play.

I confess that any respect I had for Adele has now gone out the window.  this is an absolute disgrace.  Adele should have refused to accept an award she is clearly not qualified for.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
