Has U2 set some kind of record with these Grammies?

Sorry for another new thread...but I was afraid of this getting lost and I really want to know...

Has any other Rock and roll band won as many grammies as U2? With their recent wins this makes what...14???I realize some of the classic rock bands and artists were never even nominated because rock wasn't respected in the early days (I think Elvis only ever won for his work in gospel music for example)

I really don't know where to look this up...does anyone know just off the top of their head ?

BBC news just said that fourteen is the most of any rock band ever. They didn't say anything about the most for any artist though.

Still...FOURTEEN Grammys...that's just phenomenal. Wow. Words fail me...and that's a very rare occurence

And of those 14 awards, they have:

1 "Album of the Year" - very prestigious award for JT

2 "Record of the Year" - arguably the most prestigious award, for BD and WO

1 "Song of the Year" - another highly prestigious award for BD

2 "Rock Album of the Year" - not as prestigious, but still highly respected award for AB and ATYCLB

1 "Alternative Album of the Year" - another highly respected award for "Zooropa"

and numerous other "Pop Songs" and video awards. In other words, U2 have won ALL of the major Grammy awards, including the three most prestigious Grammy awards, and have numerous other Grammy awards to their name.

Didn't I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For win Record/Song of the Year?

I think U2 is the only band to have one in the "record of the year" 2 years in a row. Which I think beats the Beatles!

Then check out this link....
http://forum.interference.com/u2feed...ML/018320.html

This list is 100% accurate and was ripped directly from the official Grammy site. It lists all 14 Grammys directly awarded to U2.

It does NOT list the 1992 Grammy given to Lanois/Eno. That was for "Producer of the Year", not a U2 award per se. That's why U2 officially only has 14 instead of 15. In fact, that PotY award was even a tie since they [Lanois/Eno] shared it with Babyface.

The JT version of "I Still Haven't Found" was nominated for Record of the Year and Song of the Year in 1998, but lost.
http://www.u2faq.com also confirms the number 14.

Man, I forgot that U2 won Album of the Year for JT. If I hadn't seen it on the offical Grammy site I would have argued all night about it. Where did I dream up that Paul Simon's "Graceland" beat U2 for that award? Am I thinking about another year or another award?

I wonder if there is any album besides ATYCLB that all the singles won grammys, too. That is pretty impressive, imo. For all those who thought U2 were one hit wonders (if there were any...)

I believe Paul Simon won in 1987, the year before The Joshua Tree won Album Of The Year.

C ya!
