Rick Rubin Gets Grammys in Silence

Published: 2007-02-20
Yes, the Dixie Chicks walked away with all five Grammy Awards but there is another who took home just as many. Long time musical genius, Rick Rubin has finally been awarded for the hand he has had in creating so many great albums.

The five Grammy's that Rubin rightfully won are the following; Producer of the Year, Album of the Year, Country Album of the Year, Record of the Year and Best Rock Album of the Year. On top of those entire acknowledgements he was also involved in five other award-winning projects that night.

Being the quiet man that Rubin is said to be, he did not attend the award ceremony but he did release a statement. "It feels so good to know our work touched listeners. During the process, we are making our own favorite music. These awards are confirmation that what is true and real in the emotion of music is contagious."

After an insane year of non-stop projects Rick Rubin sees no break in sight. He is currently attached to the following projects; Linkin Park, Metallica, Weezer, U2, Dan Wilson (of Semisonic), The International Noise Conspiracy and a very personal compilation of peace songs.
