When was the first Grammy awarded to a rock and roller?


In 1966, for example, Frank Sinatra and Barbara Streisand won in the Pop category,. Neither was a rock and roller and there was no category for rock and roll.

    Best Rock Album - 1995 - The Rolling Stones - "Voodoo Lounge"

    Best Hard Rock Performance - 1990 - Living Color "Cult of Personality"  this category ended in 2011 and subsequently changed for 2012 to Best Rock Performance which the Foo Fighters won the award for the newly named award.
