If you recall, the all-star superjam featuring Homme, Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor, Dave Grohl, and Lindsey Buckingham was cut short in favor of commercials. Reznor responded almost immediately, writing on Twitter, “Music’s biggest night… to be disrespected. A heartfelt FUCK YOU guys.” While the Grammys Executive Producer has since apologized, there still appears to be ill will among the rockers.
Case in point: during QOTSA’s concert in Houston on Sunday night, Homme took a shot at the awards show as well as Imagine Dragons, who beat out QOSTA for “Best Rock Performance” at the Grammys. Homme introduced the band’s performance of “I Appear Missing” by telling the audience that it was written by Imagine Dragons. Met with heckles, he added, “Fuck everything. Fuck the man. Fuck Imagine Dragons and fuck the Grammys.”
