2020 GRAMMY Awards nominees revealed: Experts share how much a win is worth

grammy-frangioni

The GRAMMY Awards may have released its complete list of 2020 nominees on Wednesday, but like every other year, there is discussion over surprises and snubs – which calls into question how much these gilded gramophone statues are actually worth in the music industry.

For David Frangioni, chief executive officer of professional music coaching and networking service All Access IDA, he has seen the impact of a GRAMMY win firsthand. In an interview with FOX Business, he shared a real-life project where he saw a direct boost in sales.

“When I worked with Roger Nichols and Steely Dan on a 96 kHz remix of ‘Two Against Nature,’ the group went on to win GRAMMYs for the album.  It was their first studio album in nearly two decades, and after the GRAMMY wins, ‘Two Against Nature’ saw a 747 percent surge in sales – this was during the week following their GRAMMY wins!”

Frangioni noted that the album debuted at number six on The Billboard 200 chart and was RIAA Certified Gold within a month, but it re-entered the chart at number 54 after the GRAMMY wins in 2001.

“Two Against Nature” eventually earned platinum certification from the RIAA – meaning it sold a million copies.

STOP EXPECTING MUSIC FROM MUSICIANS

musician-frangioni

You are part of an angry mob.

You might not realize it, but you, your friends, your family and everyone you know are all mob affiliates, armed with short attention spans ready to riot whenever your favorite artist decides they’re not dropping a song this week.

Don’t believe me? Just look at how Rihanna has been treated since her last studio album, Anti, in 2016.

In October, Rihanna released a self-titled “visual autobiography” weighing 15 pounds and standing over 16 inches tall, with more than 1,000 exclusive photos of her personal and professional life. And how did people react? They demanded an album. In the spring of this year, Rihanna became the first woman to create a brand for LVMH Moët Hennessy–Louis Vuitton and the first Black woman to lead a major luxury fashion house with Fenty Maison, a Paris-based line she founded with LVHM. And how did people react? They demanded an album. Last year, she unveiled her Savage X Fenty line, and in 2017, Fenty Beauty, which went on to raise $100 million in its first 40 days. Yet again, an album was requested.

Rihanna is the wealthiest woman in music, steadily expanding her business portfolio and is on her way to becoming a mogul. And yet? People are demanding an album.

Inside the Kurt Cobain Business

Two days after Kurt Cobain’s body was found in the greenhouse of their Seattle home, Courtney Love showed up late to a raucous candlelit gathering of distraught Nirvana fans. She played a grief-stricken, vulgar recording of herself reading part of his suicide note, led the crowd in a chant calling Cobain an “asshole,” and handed out some of Cobain’s clothes, which she continued to do in the weeks that followed. Twenty-five years later, one of the sweaters that Love gave to a family friend is expected to fetch $300,000 at an auction this weekend.

“Courtney couldn’t have realized that the value of these things would be worth what they are today,” Darren Julien, who is running that auction, tells Fortune. “Those are John Lennon prices.”

The most reticent of rock stars—one who agonized about his artistic truth being fed into the thresher of corporatism—now commands his own economy from beyond the grave. In 1991, the cover of Nirvana’s major-label debut, Nevermind, satirically depicted a baby chasing a dollar bill on a fishhook. In 2019, the Kurt Cobain business is big business.

Using Creative Outlets to Deal with Pressure of Life | David Frangioni

What do you do when the odds are completely against you?

He said, “Just after being introduced to the drums, I was diagnosed with retinoblastoma, which is a rare form of eye cancer … It required that in order to save my life, they had to remove my right eye … So, I’ve been blind in my right eye ever since … What they did is put a removable prosthetic in the socket, and in addition to that, when the surgeon was doing the operation to remove my eye, he made a mistake, and it happens sometimes in operations like this … and he clipped a muscle in my eye lid … So, I grew up … with my lid half-closed, without eyesight in my right eye, and a lot of hospital visits …”

DAVID FRANGIONI: FOCUSING ON YOUR STRENGTHS

"On this episode, I had the absolute pleasure of interviewing Mr. David Fragioni, who is a drumming aficionado and has found a way to support himself through his art. He started playing drums at the age of 2, which was the same age that he was diagnosed with retinoblastoma and lost his eye. Still, he pushed through all of his struggles, nurtured his talents, delved into business, and discovered his strengths along the way. 

David takes us through his journey, sharing his personal and professional truths, as one always leads into the other. He discusses the importance of nurturing your talents and focusing on what will help you grow to be who you’re supposed to be in the world, rather than focusing on the deafening outside noise that can derail your journey.

I recently had the opportunity to sit down with the rock experts at Metal Pulp and Paper to discuss the release of my book Crash: The World’s Greatest Drum Kits From Appice to Pert to Van Halen.

When asked how I was able to excel musically while dealing with such a traumatic situation, I told them that I owe my success to my parents and my faith: “I had incredibly supportive parents…I owe my career and life success to my parents, Silviano and Rita and, of course, God.”

Appearance on The Tech Blog Writer Podcast

I recently had the opportunity to sit down for a conversation with Neil C. Hughes, host of The Tech Blog Writer Podcast. Neil and I had a great conversation about my company Audio One, designing high-end A/V home systems for Steven Tyler and Ozzie Osbourne and the work of my company All Access IDA

Neil wanted to know where my love of music came from, so I started at the beginning: being introduced to the drums at two years old. I went on to explain that when I was eight I started taking drum lessons, and by twelve-years-old I was playing in multiple bands. Then I was introduced to the drum machine, and at that moment--from a production and sound stand-point--everything changed for me.
