We're going to the Grammy's!

That is actually not true, we are most definitely not going to the Grammy's, BUT the dude that produced Oxbow's 2007 release, The Narcotic Story, most definitely is. And we suspect one of the guys from the band will go as well...which means that Eugene might actually get to smack Anthony Kiedis just the way he says he wants to (disclaimer: we do not condone the smacking of Anthony Kiedis because he is pretty much Mark's childhood idol). Joe Chiccarelli is nominated for Producer of the Year for his work on 'Narcotic Story' and three other titles. He faces some stiff competition from the likes of Mark Ronson, Timbaland and Howard Benson...but, quite honestly, we couldn't care less whether he wins or loses...its the fact that 'The Narcotic Story' is finally receiving some much due acclaim that tickles our pink...

Soooooo....if you can vote in the Grammy's, we suggest you vote Chiccarelli.
