They have a chance since Jethro Tull wasn't nominated in this category.

The Grammys is probably the most overrated awards show ever, but at least it's good that Frank's music is getting out there.

I suppose you have to be gracious if you are nominated for an award - with a notable exception being 'The Rock & Roll of Fame' which I detest, but what are the chances of winning a MacArthur Fellowship? How do you win a MacArthur Fellowship? How prestigious is a MacArthur Fellowship?

Not released yet.
I believe ZPZ performances of G-Spot Tornado did not commence until the second year of touring
but officially documented performances will minimally be available soon on YCFOSA downloads and future ZPZ releases .

Realistically, ZPZ and NIN are the only two pieces there that are worth the time. And, being a fan of both, I was actually given pause for a split second. Of course "Peaches" is my choice, but Trent did an amazing job on "Ghosts". Good on him for that, but ZPZ deserves their day.

Frank Z. would have been ashamed of been nominated to a Grammy. It's kind of the opposite of what he stood for.

Why? I think any composer is happy for some recognition. Even though many spend lots of time explaining that it doesn't mean anything.

Well he was nominated 7 times, and won once (for Jazz from Hell, in the same category, the track "Wipe Out" was nominated, by Herbie Hancock and DZ (and somebody else)). I'll get the exact quote for you, but I don't think he was ashamed of his nominations; more like he couldn't care less.

Thanks BBP, I didn't know he was nominated so many times.
I agree, he probably didn't care.

Well... i agree, he couldn't care less. But I also think that his philosophy was constantly attacking the mainstream media (back and forth). Frank's attitude was never passive regarding all of his enemies (the media, the church, the republicans...). I think it would have been a big statement to reject an award like that, just like Jean Paul Sartre did with the Nobel prize in literature.
... I'm not arguing with you, i just fucking hate the grammy awards, i just think they have no authority to say what music is "good" and what music "sucks".

From the book "The Grammys; The ultimate unofficial guide to Music's Highest Honor" by Thomas O'Neil:

Zappa won 1 Grammy for Jazz From Hell (the album) in the category Best Rock Performance (orchestra, group or soloist).
DZ was nominated in the same year 1988, same category:
Herbie Hancock, Dweezil Zappa and Terry Bozzio "Wipe Out", track from Back to the Beach soundtrack. I apologize for forgetting Terry.

Quote:
One of Springsteen's three losing bids was for Best Rock Instrumental Performance, which was claimed by an electric rocker who loved to shock his fans fith outrageous titles like "Why Does It Hurt When I Pee?" Frank Zappa's victorious work was Jazz From Hell, which he discussed with The Cleveland Plain Dealer one week before the Grammycast: "My nomination must have been an accident. Either that or a lot of people have a perverse sense of humour. I'm convinced that nobody ever heard [it]. I have no ambiguous feelings about the Grammys at all. I know they're fake. I find it difficult to believe that Whitney Houston is the answer to all of America's music needs."


Notes:
-How many of us fans were actually shocked with titles like "Why Does It Hurt When I Pee"?
-The only person to ever refuse a Grammy was Sinead O'Connor.
-Browsing through the nomination lists, it looks like there are/were a relative lot of members in the Academy with a more alternative taste.
