Great accomplishment! And they're the first band!

They won two Grammys for Rumours? I thought it was just Album of the Year?

It was the one and then 2003 Grammy Hall of Fame (Rumours again). I can't be certain but as I recall that's how the press get at more than one.

ETA: apologies, ignore me, reread the press release & see I was incorrect. There have been threads on this in the past and I recalled the possibility being hall of fame or a production award.

^and by production I mean that someone, here I think, once suggested that FM members each received two Grammy's, one as artist and one as producer as the award goes to both. I can't confirm that but thought I'd pass it along. The Grammy site lists two wins but I don't see where it has specifics on the second.

This is interesting. The award is given not only for musical recognition, but for charitable works (ie, MusicCARES), which is why it's not been given to a band before. Bands typically don't do charitable works as a unit.

I wonder what philanthropic works FM have done as a band to warrant this award? Or are they just adding up the individuals' acts together?

Not sure. There was a thread a few months ago where we were discussing the band's scant philanthropic efforts. But what do we know?

I've seen these concerts on AXS TV. One more thing to look forward to in 2018.
