Dave Grohl Pushed For Lemmy Tribute At Grammys (A Top Story)
Alice Cooper's Hollywood Vampires performed a version of Ace Of Spades to a surprised audience of pop and rap fans during the gala event in Los Angeles. But Ken Ehrlich - who was struggling to include an unusually large number of artists' deaths in the weeks beforehand - hadn't planned anything special.
Ehlrich tells Billboard: "I will confess I didn't have a lot of Motorhead on my iPad. The metalheads have Dave Grohl to thank for that, because when I asked Dave if he would introduce that segment, he said, 'I'll do it - if you do something for Lemmy.'"
Grohl said on stage: "Many of us play rock'n'roll but a rare few among us are rock'n'roll. Lemmy was rock'n'roll. He was a rebel, an outsider, one of a kind, and a way of life. He was Motorhead. He was a legend and I was proud to call him my friend." Read more - here.
