The 64th Annual Grammy Awards Winners have been revealed in a lengthy list of categories and we’ve discussed that over on “The Chronicles of Piercing Ken” earlier this morning. This post is to shine a keen focus on the categories that interest our demographic of readers the most and those are the Rock and Metal ones. Since it was easy to present in this fashion, I’ve once again included all the nominees for these same categories but I omitted the “Best Music Video” in the winner list since ACDC did NOT go home with the trophy. Now let’s take a look at these winners, may I have the envelope please.

Best Rock Performance: For new vocal or instrumental solo, duo/group or collaborative rock recordings.

Shot In The Dark – AC/DC
Know You Better (Live From Capitol Studio A) – Black Pumas

The band Dream Theater have made an announcement regarding the 2021 tour dates and while I’ve embedded the graphic of the statement, I have the text down below for those who can’t read it.

The Announcement:
Dream Theater have made the difficult decision to move their October-December 2021 North American tour dates to early 2022.

In light of current instabilities to touring that remain due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we feel confident that this is the right decision. Know that we are as disappointed as you are that we will have to wait a little longer to bring Dream Theater music to you live.
