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.


I don't think Frank threw his statuette in the trash. I'll bet it's still in the basement somewhere.

The names are right there. I think Steve is in the dress and Napoleon has the beard.

I am just glad ZPZ won. This exposes FZ's music to someone who might never listen to it. My daughter was amazed that something that I like was nominated and astonished that it won. well done Dweezil and all.

Sure!
(stomps up to get Grammy book. Yes I have one. I bought it new, for 75 cents. I left the pricetag on to show my feelings towards this award.)

1979 - Best Rock Performance, Male for Dancin' Fool. Beat by Bob Dylan: Gotta Serve Somebody.
1979 - Best Rock Instrumental Performance for Rat Tomago, beat by Wings - Rockestra theme
1982 - Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group With Vocal, with Moon for Valley Girl. Beat by Survivor - Eye of the Tiger.
1984 - Best New Classical Composition for The Perfect Stranger. Beat by Antony and Cleopatra by Samuel Barber.
1987 - Best Instrumental Composition for Jazz From Hell (track), beat by Call Sheet Blues by Dexter Gordon, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter, Billy Higgins
1988 - Best Rock Instrumental Performance for Guitar (album), beat by Carlos Santana - Blues for Salvador

In 1993, Zappa's Universe won a Grammy for Best Rock Instrumental Performance for Sofa.
In 1995, Civilisation Phase 3 won the Grammy for Best Album Package, Boxed.
In 1997 FZ received the Lifetime Achievement Award posthumously.

Don't diss the Grammys. Winning one has given many artists extra album sales, the average sales hike is 26 to 34%.

Well, at least Frank could say he lost to Samuel Barber.

Wait a minute...fucking Rockestra? ROCKESTRA? and EYE OF THE TIGER? Those songs would have to achieve nirvana to get up to the level of shit.

Dove: 1997. Sorry for not mentioning that.

Cal: As Eye of the Tiger is on a gazillion rock anthologies I have and as I've heard people use it on so many occasions, it's not surprising it got the most votes. And not undeserved either.
And well, the Wings... Paul McCartney, bound to get some votes.
But what about that Call Sheet Blues? Never heard of that before.
