Some of the best Grammy Awards of this year were for musicians I love! Oh! Ya, I just can't live without music.

So, let's see! Arcade Fire won 'Best Album of the Year' for SubursHerbie Hancock  for his Imagine won 'Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals' and 'Best Improvised Jazz Solo', Esperanza Spalding won 'Best New Artist'. 

I wrote about Spalding last sunday, afternoon. She is absolutely incredible!

And today, my musical hit goes to Jeff Beck the legendary rock guitarist. He won three awards.

Jeff Beck, rock guitarist extraordinaire, captured three Grammy® awards at the star-studded ceremony held February 23 2011 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

His latest studio album, Emotion&Commotion, was nominated for five Grammy awards, making him the most nominated artist rock artist this year. 

Beck won 'Best Rock Instrumental Performance' for 'Hammerhead' and 'Best Pop Instrumental' performance for 'Nessun Dorma', both from Emotion&Commotion.

This marks only the second time an artist has won Grammys in both of these categories in the same year. The first time was in 2006 by guitar legend and Beck mentor Les Paul. 

Beck also won for 'Best Pop Collaboration With Vocals' for 'Imagine', his collaboration with Herbie Hancock, Pink, India Arie, Seal, Konono No. 1& Oumou Sangare. Beck has previously won five Grammy awards.

Jeff Beck and his performance for 'Nessum Dorma' is absolutely crashing! Among the differents perfomances on YouTube, I really prefer this one.
