Foo Fighters win Best Rock Album, Best Rock Song, and Best Rock Performance at this year's Grammys

In the midst of the tragic death of Foo Fighter’s drummer Tyler Hawkins, the band was just awarded 3 Grammys: Best rock performance, Best rock song for “Making a fire”, and Best Album for “Medicine at Midnight“, as expected the band was not present to receive the award.

Their latest album “Medicine at Midnight” was well received by the critics, they the band mentioned that this was their “Let’s Dance” album, paying homage to late rock legend David Bowie for its raw, energetic sound, straight no chaser guitar riffs and crusty guitar sounds, pivoting on their well-known arena rock style; they committed so much to the style of the Bowie 1983 smash hit that they invited percussionist and drummer Omar Hakim to be a part of the recording sessions of the album.

Since the 2000 Grammy edition, the band has constantly won awards for these categories, with this year’s awards they now have 14 Grammys. Their first award came in 2000 winning Best Rock Album for their “Nothing left to lose” record, the LP included the hit song “Learn to Fly” which also won the Grammy for Best Video.

For now, they are out of the spotlight; the last official communication from the band came via their official Twitter account, the Foo Fighters made an announcement saying that have canceled all dates in their current world tour.

“It is with great sadness that Foo Fighters confirm the cancellation of all upcoming tour dates in light of the staggering loss of our brother Taylor Hawkins,” the band commented.

We’re sorry for and share in the disappointment that we won’t be seeing one another as planned. Instead, let’s take this time to grieve, to heal, to pull our loved ones close, and to appreciate all the music and memories we’ve made together.”
