David Berman and Mark Hollis missing from 2020 Grammys ‘In Memoriam’

This year’s Grammys “In Memoriam” segment left out — or misspelled — a few key names.

Among those snubbed for their montage moment were Talk Talk frontman Mark Hollis and Silver Jews founder David Berman. Sunday’s edit also featured “Rick” — as opposed to the correct “Ric” — Ocasek, the late leader of Boston rock band the Cars, who died in September at age 75.

Hollis and Berman died in February at age 64 and August at age 52, respectively. This year’s Grammys ceremony also included more extensive tributes to beloved L.A. rapper Nipsey Hussle and Lakers legend Kobe Bryant, who died Sunday morning in a Calabasas helicopter crash along with his 13-year-old daughter.
