Tom Sutcliffe: Time to have confidence in the future

The great aphorist Ambrose Bierce defined an aphorism as "pre-digested wisdom" in his Devil's Dictionary – a blankly unaphoristic definition which contains more than a hint of self-criticism. He was right to be suspicious, with the memorability and neatness of aphorisms so often seducing us into forgetting everything that contradicts them. But sometimes you encounter an aphoristic phrasing of an idea that requires you to do all the digesting, so neatly does it encapsulate a much larger thought.

Greg Ladanyi: Grammy-winning record producer noted for his work with Jackson Browne and Toto

The American recording engineer and producer Greg Ladanyi helped make some of the biggest records of the Seventies and Eighties, by such California-based acts as Jackson Browne, Don Henley and Toto, the group of top Los Angeles session players turned performers. Indeed, his excellence as an engineer was recognised when the multi-million selling Toto IV, including the transatlantic hits "Africa" and "Rosanna", won the Best Engineered Recording – (Non Classical) Grammy in 1982, and Toto received a further seven Grammies individually and collectively for the album.

David 'Pop' Winans: Patriarch of the Winans family gospel group

David "Pop" Winans was the patriarch of a family of gospel singers whose far-reaching influence has by no means been confined to the world of spiritual music, but has also crossed over into the worlds of pop, R&B and rap. In 1988, four of his seven sons – the twins Carvin and Marvin, along with Ronald and Michael, better known as The Winans – backed up Michael Jackson on his hit "Man in the Mirror".

Caught in the net - The award goes to... Rosanna

It was perhaps when they awarded the Best Polka Album gong that ?uestlove's mind started to wander. In attendance at Sunday's Grammy Awards, the drummer and spearhead of rap band The Roots surveyed those around him and observed, coarsely, "rosanna arquette is 50 and can get it. SERIOUSLY." We know this because he listed it as one of his highlights of Grammys night, during regular updates from the event on his Twitter account, http://twitter.com/ qoolquest. It makes for some enjoyable, if surreal reading. "Robert Plant just kicked me outta his seat lol," he writes at one stage. He wasn't the only guest using Twitter to provide a unique insight into the Grammys. Diplo, the influential producer/DJ, a co-nominee for his work on MIA's "Paper Planes", got in on the act too ( http://twitter.com/ diplo). "Jonas broz go home," he declared in one of his many postings. He also, earlier, gave a snapshot of his preparation for the long night ahead, "Went no tie.. But shoulda got haircut.. 175 dollar whiskey in 5 oz flask ready to go."
