Glen Campbell, currently on a farewell tour after his recent announcement that he is suffering from Alzheimer's disease, will perform at the Grammy Awards with contemporary country stars Blake Shelton and The Band Perry. The Grammys will take place February 12th in Los Angeles.

Campbell, a Country Music Hall of Famer, made history in 1967 when he won Grammys in both the country and pop categories – two country & western awards for the song "Gentle on My Mind" and two pop for "By the Time I get to Phoenix." Shelton is up for two awards at this year's Grammys, including Best Country Album for Red River Blue. The Band Perry is nominated for a Best New Artist Grammy.

“Vicious”

Lou Reed | 1972

Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
