59th Grammy Awards 2017 Rock & Metal acts

The 59th Grammy awards 2017 just took place at Staple center in Los Angeles The ceremony recognized the best recordings, compositions, and artists of the eligibility year, which runs from October 1, 2015 to September 30, 2016. The nominations were announced on December 6, 2016.

To me it was interesting and and bit bitter in some places, Specially while Metallica performing with lady gaga with a troublesome mic on the song moth into flame , and the girls dancing and so called spinning heads on stage was weird to look at to many critics. Metallica also loosed their nomination for best ROCK SONG, while loudwire writes “METALLICA NOT METAL?”

Check out the abc News update regarding this !


Best part was Megadeth winning best metal performance award for “DYSTOPIA” released in 2016 , I was just saying someone 2 days back it was one of the best till death from Megadeth. While they won the award on the 12th shot, the house band was playing Metallica’s Master of puppets, meanwhile Dave replied to a fan and said: “Ah, you can’t blame ’em for not being able to play @Megadeth.” To me the precise time to call out their name and re actions were funny, check that out yourself on you tube and say lol!

David Bowie won Best Rock Performance, Best Rock Song and Best Alternative Music Album and in total 5 awards all from the album Blackstar.He completely dominated everything he had with the latest album. Sadly he passed away right after releasing the album on Jan 8th,2016 . His  only son Duncan Jones tweeted “So proud of you dad! Would hold you up forever. ♥ #grammys2017,”
