I think they were nominated twice for The Game. One for producing and one for rock album of the year maybe? Or record of the year?

Also, Freddie Mercury: The Untold Story was nominated for some minor category too.

Of course, they won two Grammys in 1980 (for best album "The Game" and for best group in 1980 / for "Another One Bites The Dust")

Still a shame, they should have won more Grammys ... well: Americans and their problems with QUEEN !!!


I think there's a difference between being NOMINATED, and being a WINNER.

After all, do Grammys really matter? I don't think so.

How come crap artists like Barbara Streisand and Sting have over a dozen of them while great bands like The Who, AC/DC, Queen, Guns N' Roses have never won a single award.

Queen lost Best Rock Performance to Bob Seger. Pink Floyd were nominated as well in same category. Grammies suck! Jethro Tull won for Best Metal in 1988 shows you Grammy people are DUMB!

I totally agree. I do think that even though they didn't win many awards, Queen and all previously mentioned, they touched so many lives through their music and that is award enough in my eyes.

LOL... I remember when Metallica finally won for best metal band for 'The Black Album', and Lars said:
- "First of all we'd like to thank Jethro Tull for not putting an album out this year".

The Grammys for the most part suck. Don't forget about the Milli Vanilli incident. Regardless of the fact that they returned their awards after the whole fiasco, the fact that someone thought those guys had talent was simply dumb.

Peter Cetera is correct. I remember watching Roger and John receiving it back in 1980 on tv.

In America, the Grammy's are a huge deal. They are considered the most prestigious of all music awards.

I think its great though that John received so many top bass player awards!


Wo ist das kamerahhhhhhhhhhh!!!

Although the Grammys remain as the most prestigious music award, yet they don't mean as much to artists (especially rock stars) as having their albums go multi-platinum.

Besides, it's the opinion of millions of music buyers what really matters to them, and not dozen or at the most hundreds of music critics.
