At the 2012 Grammy Awards, millions of people tuned in to see Foo Fighters conquer the rock awards by winning five trophies during the ceremony. One of their five golden gramophones was for the Best Hard Rock / Metal Performance category -- as the band beat out fellow nominees Megadeth, Mastodon, Dream Theater and Sum 41.
As the 2012 Grammy Awards slowly become a spotlit memory, one of the most successful and featured winners of "music's biggest night" were Foo Fighters. With his band having captured five Grammy awards (only one less than pop star Adele), including Best Hard Rock / Metal Performance, frontman Dave Grohl revealed to MTV that he feels bad for beating out Dream Theater for that very award.
As the Grammy Awards are quickly approaching this Sunday (Feb. 12), the nominees for the 'Best Hard Rock / Metal Performance' category are readying their tuxedos and preparing their speeches. Foo Fighters, Dream Theater, Mastodon, Megadeth and Sum 41 are all nominated for the precious prize and have been sharing their excitement with a cluster of new quotes.
Dream Theater vocalist James LaBrie is currently working on his next solo album, which will be his third release under the James LaBrie name. After Dream Theater's monster year in 2011, which included their first ever Grammy nomination, LaBrie spoke with Attention Deficit Delirium about the progression of his latest project.
Progressive metal giants Dream Theater are premiering their brand new lyric video for the single 'Build Me Up, Break Me Down,' from the band's 11th studio album 'A Dramatic Turn of Events' right here on Loudwire. 'Build Me Up, Break Me Down' sets a new bar for lyric videos, nearly capturing the production quality of a full-on music video.
Dream Theater founder and guitarist John Petrucci is undoubtedly one of metal's most admired and beloved musicians. Although the band has been around since 1985, Dream Theater continue to prove that they walk the thin line of experimental creativity. Petrucci recently spoke with Pollstar about why the band is bigger overseas, their replacement for longtime drummer Mike Portnoy and much more.
Dream Theater and Trivium were touring together last year, and although the tour has ended, it seems to be the gift that keeps on giving. During the tour, Trivium’s Matt Heafy and Dream Theater’s John Petrucci teamed up for a four part web series for guitar players. The first segment of ‘Talking With John Petrucci of Dream Theater and Matt Heafy of Trivium’ is now available for guitar geeks and music enthusiasts alike!
New Year's resolutions: Most people don't live up to them, but everyone makes 'em -- even your favorite hard rockers. How do we know?
