I’m not a huge fan of the Grammy’s but it’s one of the better known music awards around these days, and Tool today won the gong for Best Metal Performance with 7empest. Justin Chancellor and Danny Carey were both on handy to accept the award – I haven’t seen any footage yet, however reportedly Danny paid tribute to Neil Peart. Update: video added!
For those interested, also in the running for the award were Candlemass featuring Tony Iommi (“Astrolus – The Great Octopus”), Death Angel (“Humanicide”), I Prevail (“Bow Down”), and Killswitch Engage (“Unleashed.”)
And a quick followup video with a few more words of thanks:
