Led Zeppelin Win Grammy

Led Zeppelin's album, Celebration Day, a live album of their 2007 one-off reunion show at London's O2 arena, has won the Grammy for Best Rock Album.

The band were nominated for two Grammy's this year, with Kashmir losing out to Imagine Dragon's Radioactive for Best Rock Performance (are  you kidding me?). The truth is, missing Kashmir in 1975 (The Eagles Lyin' Eyes won best performance by a duo or group in 1975) is such a major Grammy faux-pas that it should have been an automatic this time.

It is Led Zeppelin's first performance Grammy, although they did receive a lifetime achievement award in 2005. As well Jimmy Page and Robert Plant won a Grammy in 1988 for the song Most High off of their Walking Into Clarksdale CD. Individually, Plant won five Grammy's in 2009, including album and record of the year, for his collaboration with Alison Krauss, Raising Sand, and John Paul Jones' band Them Crooked Vultures won one Best Hard Rock Performance in 2011 for the song New Fang.
