They’re not the only ones because there’s an impressive number of rock and heavy metal artists who received nods from the Grammys.
AC/DC, Paul McCartney, Mammoth WVH, Dream Theater, Mastodon, Rob Zombie, George Harrison, Jimi Hendrix and Chris Cornell also received nominations.
Meanwhile, in a recent interview, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl spoke about his musical journey starting with his first punk show — Naked Raygun in Chicago in 1982.
“They knew four chords and the singer was, like, on top of my head, and I was against the stage, and it was life-affirming,” he recalled, “because I thought … ‘Oh my God! This is what I want to do.'”
“This was that hyperactive energy that I had my entire life, but I was kind of channeling all of that into the way that I played drums,” he said. “It felt so good.”
