Foo Fighters have bagged all three rock awards at the 64th GRAMMY Awards. The event is hosted by the Recording Academy in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Nominated for Best Rock Performance (“Making A Fire”), Best Rock Song (“Waiting On A War”) and Best Rock Album (Medicine At Midnight), the band won all three categories. Unlike previous years, they did not accept their awards in person. Following the news that their longtime drummer Taylor Hawkins passed away at age 50, Foo Fighters have since pulled out of touring. According to a statement on their Twitter account, the band are “taking time to grieve.”
