Dave Grohl Is Glad Foo Fighters Are Competing With Adele At Grammy Awards
Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has commented he feels "honoured" that his band are to go head to head with Adele at this years Grammy Awards.
Adele and the Foo Fighters have both been nominated for six categories and will battle for the title of 'Album of the Year'; along with Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars and Rihanna.
Grohl told the Associated Press "I'm glad that we're with Adele in the same category. It means we've done something right. I think she gives us all hope. She's made an incredible record, and she's an incredibly talented artist, so maybe it is true that the cream actually rises to the top."
When asked about the lack of rock musicians nominated at this years awards, Grohl responded "I feel the same way about it as how I felt at this massive car show in Pomona last weekend that I entered my 1965 Ford Falcon van into. I've never entered a car show before, and I don't really know a lot about it, but we put the van into the competition. My friend Troy, who built the thing, said to me, "I think we're gonna win." I asked him, "Why's that?" He said, "Because there are no other vans here." I ended up winning first in class. It's kind of the same feeling."
The 54th Grammy Awards take place from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on February 12th [February 13th in New Zealand]. Once again, it looks like no New Zealand network will be screening the awards show. E! will be screening the Red Carpet build up from 11 am Monday February 13th.
