LONG way to the TOP

IT TOOK OVER three decades but AC/DC finally ended their Grammys drought with the 2010 award for best hard rock performance – for War Machine off the Black Ice album. Formed in Australia in 1973, the band received their first Grammy nomination in 1991 (The Razors Edge) and another four before this year’s breakthrough. Rock music – especially their heavy genre – was effectively ignored by Grammy voters during the band’s heyday in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

No such snubs for Keith Urban, however. Already a two-time winner (2002 for You’ll Think Of Me; and 2008 for Stupid Boy) the New Zealand-born Australian made it s hat-trick with the best male country vocal performance award for Sweet Thing from his Defying Gravity album.
