Young Man Nominated

The 5CD set "Young Man With The Big Beat: The Complete '56 Elvis Presley Masters" has been nominated for Best Historical Album. Let's hope the album wins! The trouble is that Paul McCartney always seems to win everything he is nominated for as he always appears to collect the Award in person and that adds kudos to the show.

Forget about this box, Elvis should be given a special grammy in recognition of his contributuions to music. To think that he only has grammys for gospel is nonsense. Its long overdue.

Fantastic news. Elvis should win this one. Apparently this Award will NOT be part of the televised Grammy Show on 12th February, 2012 so it is more than likely McCartney will not be in the frame for attending.

Thank you Bill Rauhuff, for clarifying that. Scotty is indeed in there, where he belongs, after all he is the guitar man who changed the world, so should be higher up, maybe number eleven, eh!!. I still cant find Jerry Reed, i've never seen anyone play acoustic as fast and as good as him.

ok, getting away from Cool Paul ( haven't laughed so much in ages ). It's a good release and i really hopes it wins an award but i think MRS have shown things can be done a lot better and at a fraction of the price. The concert should have been released as an FTD without the addition of the official 56 recordings which are already out there.

Actually James Burton and Scotty Moore are in the top 100 list. I believe 19th and 29th but I could be wrong on the numbers but they are in the top 100 but it is still bogus as Willie Nelson is in it at 77th but know John Fogerty, Brian Seltzer, Glen Campbell or Johnny Rivers. I do hope Elvis wins the grammy but Paul McCartney is tough competition. I have seen him in concert and he was great but Elvis is much better.

Yeah, it's the Grammy's. Sir Paul is nominated for the "Band On The Run"-reissue.

Is this the Grammys we are talking about, well then i wouldn't hold my breath. They only ever handed him out begrudgingly three in his lifetime in what they considered a novelty nice genre. A good example of this is Rolling Stone magazines list of 100 greatest guitarists. George Harrison is number 11, while Rory Gallagher is no. 57 and Johnny Winters is no. 63. Just two examples, no Scotty Hank or James Burton on the list. Its a club and they vote for their own payola.

No "trouble". Sir Paul is cool. His latest (classical) record "Ocean's Kingdom" is awesome!
