Grammy Bosses Apologize for Dave Grohl Error
Grammy Awards bosses have apologized for suggesting Dave Grohl will be performing with A Tribe Called Quest at music’s big night later this month.
Recording Academy officials announced Grohl would join the hip hop pioneers and Anderson .Paak for a jam at the prize giving in a press release, but it appears their gig news was “premature” — and incorrect.
“Earlier this week, we announced that Dave Grohl would be performing with Anderson .Paak and A Tribe Called Quest prior to confirming all participants,” a new statement reads. “Dave Grohl will not be part of this performance.
“Unfortunately, our announcement was made prematurely. On behalf of The Recording Academy…, we sincerely apologize to all parties involved for our error.”
Reports suggest the .Paak performance with ATCQ will still go ahead. It isn’t clear if the Foo Fighters star will perform at the Grammys in any capacity.
