Paul McCartney won the Best Solo Rock Vocal Performance award during the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards, for his performance of “Helter Skelter“, from the live album “Good Evening New York City“.

Paul was not in Los Angeles to receive his award, but in London to present another award during the BAFTAs ceremony.

From For Whom The Bell Tells, May 23, 2011:

As he made his way home from the BAFTAs aftershow party, he received a text from a friend in LA telling him he’d won the award for Best Solo Rock Vocal Performance at the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards. The award was Paul’s first solo Grammy in a staggering 39 years and went to the live version of “Helter Skelter” from Good Evening New York City, the gold-certified live album of Paul’s legendary 2009 shows at New York’s Citi Field. It was his 14th Grammy, of which ten were Beatle-related. The celebrations continued long into the night. I had a meeting with the surprisingly fresh-faced looking Paul the next day and he joked, It’s typical, the one time I don’t show up, I win a Grammy! Maybe that’s the secret formula!
