Jeff Beck Receives Grammy Award at 53rd Annual Grammy's

   One of our very favorite Stratocaster players Jeff Beck was nominated for several awards at the 53rd annual Grammy Awards held on February 13, 2011. Jeff was nominated for a lot of different awards. In fact I was surprised at the number of nominations Jeff got this year. I guess that’s why he made the trip to the Grammy Awards show and it was good to see him. It’s too bad they didn’t have him perform this year since he had such a great release with his album Emotion & Commotion

   Here’s a list of the nominations that Jeff Beck received at this years Grammy Awards: 

  • Best Pop Collaboration With Vocals – “Imagine” with Herbie Hancock, Pink, India.Arie, Seal, Konono No 1, Jeff Beck & Oumou Sangare from The Imagine Project
  • Best Pop Instrumental Performance – “Nessun Dorma” from Jeff Beck – Emotion & Commotion
  • Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals – “I Put A Spell On You” Jeff Beck & Joss Stone from Emotion & Commotion
  • Best Rock Instrumental Performance – “Hammerhead” from Jeff Beck – Emotion & Commotion
  • Best Rock Album – Emotion & Commotion
  • Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalists – “Imagine” from The Imagine Project
  • Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical – Emotion & Commotion with Steve Lipson, engineer

   As you can see, that’s quite a list! The best nomination of course was for Best Rock Album which would represent a huge win because of the genre’s huge audience. So how did Jeff do? Well let me tell you, Jeff Beck got himself some shiny new Grammy Awards to take home with him this year. 

Here is a list of wins for Jeff Beck at the 53rd annual Grammy Awards: 

  • Best Pop Collaboration With Vocals – “Imagine” with Herbie Hancock, Pink, India.Arie, Seal, Konono No 1, Jeff Beck & Oumou Sangare from The Imagine Project
  • Best Pop Instrumental Performance – “Nessun Dorma” Jeff Beck from Emotion & Commotion
  • Best Rock Instrumental Performance – “Hammerhead” Jeff Beck from Emotion & Commotion

   So there you have it, Jeff brought home 3 brand new Grammy Awards to go with his collection of Grammy’s. The great thing for us as Stratocaster players is the fact that Jeff has given the world some more excellent playing using the Fender Stratocaster as his main instrument. I just wish he would have won Best Rock Album but the Grammy’s of course get these things wrong a lot of the time. 

   For your pleasure, here’s a video of Jeff Beck performing the Best Rock Instrumental Performance award winning song “Hammerhead” live at the Grammy Museum.
