To see Dweezil and co accept the award, go to THIS LINK and skip to 2 hours 53 minutes. Make sure you have a box of Kleenex handy, it gets a little emotional.
In a post on the ZPZ website, Dweezil says:
Would you Bleev it? We actually won a Grammy last night. I’m quite pleased that “Peaches En Regalia” has finally received some significant recognition from the music industry itself.
This is just my opinion but I believe our note for note performance of the “Hot Rats” version gave voting members a chance to reflect on the real impact the original “Peaches” made to the world of music and the science of recording 40 years ago. They seized the opportunity to create a tiny tastefully decorated condominium sized place for it in music history.
I am honored to have been able to bring it to their attention and even more grateful that they saw fit reward the efforts of all of the exceptionally talented musicians in my band as well as the contributions from our special guests. Without all of their hard work and dedication this perverse twist of fate could not have happened.
Thank you kindly to all the voting members who gave us the nod.
Congratulations Dweezil! You’re doing a great job in getting your dad’s music out there for everyone to discover.
