London (ANI): British rocker Mick Jagger has revealed is delighted that so many English bands are doing well in America, especially after they picked up 16 top gongs at the Grammys this year. The lead vocalist of The Rolling Stones praised the new generation of musicians, and said that he was happy to see them being accepted so well in the US and elsewhere.
“With British acts doing so well at the Grammys last week it"s proving to be a great period for home-grown talent right now," the Sun quoted him as saying. “And what is so refreshing is the different styles that have been recognised — Coldplay, Duffy, Adele and Radiohead make up an eclectic bunch, proving there"s a lot of fresh British talent out there.
“I like that these acts have paid their dues in the way we had to. There is certainly an upsurge of diverse Brit acts breaking through in the US and overseas — good to see it. Long may it continue," he added.
