As the 2012 Grammy Awards slowly become a spotlit memory, one of the most successful and featured winners of “music’s biggest night” were Foo Fighters. With his band having captured five Grammy awards (only one less than pop star Adele), including Best Hard Rock / Metal Performance, frontman Dave Grohl revealed to MTV that he feels bad for beating out Dream Theater for that very award.
So far at tonight’s 2012 Grammy Awards, Foo Fighters have taken home four awards, bringing their all-time Grammy wins from six to 10. During the pre-telecast ceremony, the band won for Best Long Form Music Video, Best Hard Rock / Metal Performance, Best Rock Song and Best Rock Album.
We recently had the pleasure of interviewing former Black Sabbath / Dio / Heaven and Hell drummer and current Kill Devil Hill stickman Vinny Appice. One of the topics we discussed with Appice was the current drama surrounding original Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward‘s threat to drop out of the band’s reunion and the rest of Sabbath’s decision to continue without him.
More unfortunate news coming from the Black Sabbath camp regarding their 2012 reunion. Drummer Bill Ward has released an official statement, threatening to nix the Black Sabbath reunion due to his belief that he isn’t being financially compensated fairly for his presence and abilities.

Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian was forced to sit out of last night’s (Jan. 26) show in Kansas City, Mo., after taking ill.

Australian rock ‘n’ roll legends AC/DC are hoping to hit the studio again sometime this year to record the follow-up to their 2008 release ‘Black Ice.’ AC/DC singer Brian Johnson recently appeared on the ‘Cowhead’ radio show to speak about health issues within the band and his desire to write again.
A longtime representative for Ibanez guitars may have accidentally confirmed that Slipknot will be headlining the 2012 Rockstar Mayhem Festival this year. The official lineup is supposed to be revealed tomorrow (Jan. 25), but it looks like we may have gotten a sneak peak a little early.
