In one posthumous night, David Bowie figured out how to pile on four circumstances the same number of Grammy Awards as he'd already collected in the aggregate of his profession. Sunday night, the late artist was granted in every one of the four classes in which he'd been designated - alternative album and best engineered album, for Blackstar, in addition to best rock performance and rock song, for the title track - and that is not including a fifth classification, best recording bundle, which went to the album’s graphic designer.
For fans, that scope practically - nearly - made up not just for the scorns of the past 45 or more years, however for the way that Bowie was likewise ignored for the current year in the top collection of the year class.
Before Blackstar, Bowie had just earned one Grammy in 1985, for best short-form video for Jazzin' for Blue Jean. Before his five Blackstar wins, he got an aggregate of 12 Grammy nominations all through his five-decade vocation.
"This is his first music Grammy of any of his projects, so it's kind of shocking" for someone who "had such an amazing presence in the business," engineer Kevin Killen told reporters Sunday afternoon. "But these things happen and I'm sure most of us that work in the business don't necessarily think about getting awards. It's just about the joy of making music and I'm sure it was for him, too."
“I was very surprised to learn that he’d only won one Grammy, for a video -- that was shocking to me,” said saxophonist Donny McCaslin, the jazz band leader Bowie brought in to help lead the sessions for Blackstar. “I just feel this is such a deep record, regardless of my involvement in it, and I’m just so happy for his family and his fans. We’re fans too, so this is really cool.”
