WORST: R.I.P. Fails

No one would argue that Songs: Ohia and Magnolia Electric Co. singer-songwriter Jason Molina was ever more than a cult favorite, but anyone who's ever heard his searing, searching music will never forget it. That, among other reasons, was why those who knew Molina's work felt his loss, last March, so deeply. And that's also why it's utterly inexplicable that Molina didn't garner a mention during the telecast's In Memoriam tribute. Also hard to understand was the failure to acknowledge the passing of Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman, a true giant of thrash metal, as well as Trevor Bolder, the bassist in David Bowie's epochal Spiders From Mars backing band. And Cory Monteith's name appeared with a typo (as Montieth).
