Paul McCartney’s 2010 archive reissue of his 1973 classic Band on the Run, won a Best Historical Album at the 54th Grammy’s in Los Angeles last night.
It is the third Grammy for the album that many consider to be McCartney’s best post-Beatles effort, after he picked up Best Vocal Performance by a Duo, Group or Chorus, and engineer Geoff Emerick walked away with Best Engineered Recording, Non-Classical in 1975.
This is the second year in a row that Paul has walked off with a Grammy. Last year he won in the Best Solo Rock Vocal Performance category for his performance of Helter Skelter on the live album Good Evening New York City.
The two men were actually on stage together at the awards, when Springsteen joined McCartney as he closed the ceremony with a barnstorming performance of Golden Slumbers, Carry That Weight and The End from Abbey Road.
