Paul McCartney ‘shocked’ to win 17th Grammy
Sir Paul McCartney was “shocked” to win a Grammy for ‘Kisses on the Bottom’.
The 70-year-old former Beatles musician received the Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album award for ‘Kisses on the Bottom’, released last year, at the ceremony in Los Angeles on February 11.
The trophy was his first Grammy for new material in 42 years and he was surprised to learn his 17th overall.
He told BBC Radio 6 Music: “It came as a big shock to me to know there were 17 to tell you the truth. I don’t keep count, I suppose that’s somewhat flash – people know my figures better than I do.
“I don’t think a lot of the best musicians in the world got Grammys, it only goes to select few, and so to be one of those for the 17th time is phenomenal.” BANG!
