Lou Brutus returned as host of The Rock Radio Awards in Las Vegas, NV during the Radio Contraband Rock Radio Convention back on February 12, 2016.
The awards ceremony was held for the very first time in Vinyl at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
LB was nominated as Best Nationally Syndicated Host of the Year. It was the third year running for this award and Lou has not won it on each occassion.
The ceremony began with Houston, TX based band Hounds of Jezebel back Brutus on a song he wrote for the occassion, dedicated to all of the nomineeds, entitled “If I Don’t Win My Award Tonight (You Can All Go F*ck Yourselves).” Hilarity ensured. You can see video of the performance here.
After being handed the award by his friend Jesse James Dupree of Jackyl and Full Throttle Saloon Lou said, The only thing that has ever truly mattered to me in life is music. Without music, life itself is impossible. People come and go, but a great song remains loyal to you forever. I have killed for music. I am willing to kill for it again.”
