Grammys: Everlast, Sheryl Crow, Tito Puente, Johnny Rzeznik, Poncho Sanchez

"If I had been nominated just for my record, I probably wouldn't have shown up. I probably would have phoned it in. Winning a Grammy with [Santana], it's like you're a part of history now. This guy's on the level of Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page. There are not many guitar heroes who are still doing what he's doing. I knew who he was when I was this high [holding his hand at thigh level]." — Everlast, rapper

"I just had to look at the Grammy as a really positive recognition of trying to do something good and trying to do good work. It gives me the greatest hope that I'll be doing it that long and that I'll be that prolific and inspired at his [Santana's] age." — Singer Sheryl Crow, on her win for a cover of Guns N' Roses' "Sweet Child o' Mine," from the "Big Daddy" soundtrack, and her feelings on Santana's multiple nominations and early wins

"It's a lot of work, a lot of years. I'm celebrating 50 years as a bandleader. I feel like this might be my last Grammy. But I wanted to get to the fifth one." — Tito Puente, salsa and mambo multi-instrumentalist

"If I was going to lose, I was going to trade in my old car and get myself a [Toyota] 4Runner to console myself. And then I decided if I win, I was gonna buy a 4Runner to celebrate. Instead of waiting, I just decided to do it. So I got myself a 4Runner." — Johnny Rzeznik, Goo Goo Dolls singer/guitarist

"This is the first [Grammy]. I've been nominated four times. I've got 19 CDs out. It's about time." — Poncho Sanchez, jazz bandleader
