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!Stuart Bell
