A Few Classic Rockers Get Grammy Nominations

Paul McCartney and Wings Band On The Run
Apple Records

The Grammy nominations show was on last night, and although some classic rocker were nominated they weren’t mentioned on the show. Now that kinda hurts! We did find out that Paul McCartney is nominated for ‘Best Historical Record’  for the deluxe re-issue of his ‘Band on the Run’.  Bruce Springsteen, Sting and Keith Richards all  got a nods for Best Boxed Set or Limited Edition Series.

Van Halen had been rumored to be there, but that WAS a rumor, because they were a no show.
