And The Nominees Are…

Grammy season is nearly upon us, which means a brand new round of contenders for music’s most coveted award! Sure, we’re familiar with the hottest up and coming acts who are up for a Grammy or two, but what about the ones who paved the way?

Never fear: the nominations are in, and here are 5 of rock’s most iconic figures currently up for a Grammy in 2016!

1. Roger Waters

Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters is up for a Grammy not just once, but twice! The Wall was nominated for Best Music Film, while his album Amused To Death was nominated for Best Surround Sound Album. Competing against the likes of the Foo Fighters’ Sonic Highways and Amy Winehouse’s harrowing Amy, Roger’s in some pretty fantastic company this year!

2. James Taylor

The ‘Fire and Rain’ singer was also nominated twice, but for the same album! James’ Before This World has been nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical.

3. Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan stands a pretty good chance of walking away with his very own Grammy – or two, if luck allows! Shadows In the Night is up for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album, while The Basement Tapes Complete: The Bootleg Series Vol. 11  is up for Best Historical Album. Good luck Bob, we’re rooting for you!

4. The Rolling Stones

With as much fuss as Sticky Fingers caused this year, it’s no surprise that The Rolling Stones are up for a Grammy for Best Boxed Or Special Limited Edition Package! Let’s hope they get their sticky fingers on a Grammy.

5. Grateful Dead

Uh oh, The Rolling Stones have some fierce competition! Grateful Dead are also up for Best Boxed Or Special Limited Edition Package in 2016 for 30 Trips Around The Sun. For classic rock fans, though, either artist is a huge win!
