About

From paulmccartney.com, January 19, 2012:

It has been confirmed that Paul will perform at this year’s GRAMMY Awards. It will be the 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards ceremony, taking place in Los Angeles on 12th February. […] The ceremony will be hosted by LL Cool J and will also feature performances from the likes of Foo Fighters, Rihanna and Coldplay.

Paul McCartney also received the Award for Best Historical Album, for the re-edition of “Band On The Run“.

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.
