    Most of us know of and/or remember the hilarious outcome of the Grammy award for Best Hard Rock / Heavy Metal Album going to Jethro Tull for Crest of a Knave.

    My question: who else was nominated?


    NP: Grammy award winning album Crest of a Knave.

    The thing that made that whole process so funny was that Metallica was there, in-person and did a number that knocked the crowd dead. They really had the audience in the palm of their hand. When the presenter named all the groups and announced Jethro Tull as the winner, Tull was not present to accept the award and as they were cutting away to commercial the place erupted in boos from the entire gathering. A really uncomfortable feeling for all that were there.

    The funny thing is that Metallica didn't win it next time around, for the Black album, or even for Load (nor Reload) after that. It wasn't until 2000, when they won for "Whiskey in the Jar."

    I tried doing a search for other nominees that year but I couldn't find anything, nor anything on grammy.com.

    Just did a quick Google search and found that the nominees were:
    Jethro Tull
    Metallica
    Iggy Pop
    Jane's Addiction
    AC/DC
    I never minded so much that Jethro Tull actually won something, but Metallica were probably the deserving group that year (considering what the Grammies think is rock, Crest Of A Knave was definitely "hard" in comparison). At the time they were one of the few bands able to crack the charts with no video support and then when they released their first video of "One", it really was quite the thing...

    Of course Metallica was nominated in '88 for And Justice For All.... That was the album that got Metallica noticed by a lot of people who knew nothing about metal. I went to a Metallica concert in March of '88 at The Spectrum in Philly when they were on the Justice tour. This was shortly after Tull had won the Grammy. I still remember two kids down on the floor in the Spectrum (in the "mosh pit") running through the crowd before the start of the concert with a sign that read, "Death to Jethro Tull". That got quite a favorable reaction from the crowd. It was great. [​IMG]
    By the way, Queensryche opened for Metallica that night. Queensryche was on their Operation Mindcrime tour. That was quite an opener. [​IMG]
