Neil Young won his first ever Grammy Award tonight (January 31) for Best Boxed or Special Limited Edition Package.

The veteran rocker, whose career has spanned almost half-a-century, has bad mouthed the awards ceremony for years.

Young shared the award with his co-art directors Gary Burden and Jenice Heo for the boxed set 'Neil Young Archives Vol. 1 (1963-1972)'.

When accepting the award during the pre-telecast ceremony, Young simply said, "Thanks a lot, everybody."

Young was also nominated for the Best Solo Rock Vocal Grammy Award, but lost to Bruce Springsteen, who won for 'Working On A Dream'.
