From paulmccartney.com, February 2012:

Paul McCartney & Wings’ Band on the Run: Paul McCartney Archive Collection Deluxe Edition (Hear Music/Concord)  has won the Award for Best Historical Album at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards.
The honor ups Paul McCartney’s career Grammy tally to 15, plus a Recording Academy Trustees Award (1972), a Lifetime Achievement Award (1990), and a President’s Award (2004).

Paul McCartney also performed (twice) during the Grammy ceremony.

The participation in the Grammy event was part of a very busy week for Paul McCartney in Los Angeles. As remembered by his publicist Stuart Bell:

Once he touched down in LA, it was quite astonishing what Paul packed into just one week And the coverage? Well, in the space of a week Paul enjoyed the sort of media attention a normal artist could only dream about getting during their entire career. During the trip, Paul was presented with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, performed a special concert which was streamed globally on iTunes, was honoured as the MusiCares Person of the Year (with the likes of Neil Young, Foo Fighters, Coldplay, James Taylor and Katy Perry paying tribute to Paul), won a Grammy and performed twice on the show. The first performance was of ‘My Valentine’ along with Diana Krall, with Joe Walsh on guitar. Then Paul closed the prestigious ceremony with ‘Golden Slumbers’, which ended with an onstage jam with Rusty, Brian, Joe Walsh, Dave Grohl and Bruce Springsteen! A true one-off moment which takes my breath away just remembering it.

Stuart Bell.
