Dylan Double Grammy Win

Dylan Double Grammy Win

Bob Dylan's "Modern Times" won the Grammy for best contemporary folk/Americana album, at the 49th Grammy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles, last night (February 11).

Dylan's 32nd studio LP "Modern Times" debuted at No 1 in the US Pop charts at the time of it's release last autumn, making the singer, at 65 years-old, the oldest living musician to do so.

Dylan, who did not attend the event, also picked up a Grammy for best solo rock vocal performance for the song "Someday Baby." The track from "Modern Times" was featured in an Apple Ipod commercial, starring Dylan himself.

The song's form is based on that of Muddy Waters' "Trouble No More", and was originally made famous by the Allman Brothers Band.

"Someday Baby" was also nominated for best rock song, but lost out to Red Hot Chili Pepper's "Dani California."

Dylan has picked up ten Grammys in his career, he won best album for 2002's "Love And Theft" and the contemporary folk award for 1998's "Time Out Of Mind."
