AC/DC Win First Grammy Award

AC/DC have won their first Grammy.

It was a long way to the top for the Aussie rockers and tonight the band beat Linkin Park, Nickelback, Alice In Chains and Metallica to take away the Grammy for Best Hard Rock Performance.

AC/DC won the award for 'War Machine’, a song that wasn’t even an a-side. 'War Machine’, from the 'Black Ice’ album was the b-side to the 'Rock and Roll Train’ single.

However, they missed out on the Best Rock Album award. That went to Green Day.

'Black Ice’ producer Brendan O’Brien also won for Producer of the Year, Non-Classical for Black Ice, as well as his work with Pearl Jam, Mastodon, Killswitch Engage and Bruce Springsteen.

Other notable winners were guitar legend Jeff Beck, who won Best Rock Instrumental Performance for "A Day In The Life", from 'Performing This Week...Live From Ronnie Scott's'.

The Derek Trucks Band took home Best Contemporary Blues Album Honors for 'Already Free',

Booker T. Jones (Of Booker T. & The MG's fame) won Best Pop Instrumental Album for 'Potato Hole'.

British metal titans Judas Priest won Best Metal Performance for 'Dissident Aggressor' from 'A Touch Of Evil -Live'.

Delta Blues legend David "Honeyboy" Edwards, one of the last living links to Robert Johnson, was awarded a lifetime achievement award.
