Daft Punk Win Album Of The Year

January 26, 2014 -- 9:31 pm PST

(Daft Punk, Nile Rodgers, Paul Williams, and Pharrell Williams accept the GRAMMY for Album Of The Year at the 56th GRAMMY Awards on Jan. 26, 2014, in Los Angeles.)

Paul Williams: Pharrell!

Nile Rodgers: Wow, this is what?

Williams: This is beyond ...

Rodgers: The most insane thing ever.

Williams: Back when I was drinking and using, I used to imagine things that weren't there that were frightening, and then I got sober and two robots called me and asked me to make an album. We are Random Access Memories, some of us more random than others. You know I just got a message from the robots and what they wanted me to say is that as elegant and as classy as the GRAMMY has ever been is the moment when we saw those wonderful marriages and that "Same Love" is as fantastic … and it was the height of fairness and love and the power of love for all people at any time in any combination, is what they wanted me to say. They sail — you know that Captain Kirk uses the Enterprise — they sail on a ship called Generosity. They are generous of spirit. Everybody up here. Pharrell has just been spectacular in the things that he said. This is a labor of love. We are all so grateful. God bless you. Thank you to The Academy. Thank you, Toma.
