The Interweb Lies

MouseNeil Young has never won a Grammy. I know this for a fact because Neil Young might just be my favourite singer / songwriter of all-time.

Neil was honoured at the pre-Grammy MusiCares gala as their Person of the Year for his artistry in music and philanthropic contributions. I did a little reading about the event in which several artist covered Neil's biggest hits. I went to Google News, typed in Neil Young and started reading.

That's how I found this article. Below is a screen cap of the page in which it clearly states that Neil Young wasn't the only big name artist to never win a Grammy. It says The Beatles also never won a Grammy.

That factoid surprised me. I instantly tweeted about it.

It didn't take long for people to call bullshit on my erroneous tweet. That article was dead wrong. The Beatles have actually won 7 Grammy awards.

The interweb lies. Consider yourself warned.

Ringo Starr's 1972 Grammy Award(s) acceptance is really ultra cool if you ever happen to see it.

Neil Young not winning one is a crime.
Bob Marley never winning one is amazing
Has Rush ever won one?
