The Grammy Awards proved once again that they love Foo Fighters. The band added five awards to their career total — which now stands at 11 –during last night’s show in Los Angeles. They swept all four awards in the slimmed down rock category –Best Rock Performance, Best Rock Album, Best Rock Song and Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance.

During the only televised award, Best Rock Performance, Foos frontman Dave Grohl paused towards the end of his speech. The orchestra started playing and the announcer introduced the next presenter, but Grohl was heard yelling out “long live Rock n’ Roll!!”.

Foo Fighters were one of the acts that got to perform twice last night — they did “Walk” outside the Staples Center, and then did a live mash-up of “Rope” during a tribute to dance & electronica music.  Dave also joined Joe Walsh, Bruce Springsteen & Paul McCartney in a Beatles medley at the end of the show.

Vocal icon Whitney Houston died on Saturday. She was 48. Paramedics were called to the Beverly Hilton Hotel, where she was staying and was scheduled to attend a gala party Saturday night, but were unable to revive her. She was declared dead at 3:55 pm PT.

An autopsy was performed Sunday, but the cause of death won’t be announced until the results of a toxicology report are in — which normally takes four to six weeks. TMZ reports that she was found in a bathtub, and raised the possibility that she may have fallen asleep and drowned. Sedatives, anti-anxiety pills and sleep aids were found in her room, according to ABC News.

The town council of Birmingham, England is considering a proposal for hometown hero for Ozzy Osbourne to receive the city’s top honor. Council member Matt Bennett says Ozzy deserves the Freedom of the City of Birmingham award because he is the “world’s most famous Brummie” and a credit to his city. “A few years ago he played for the Queen, and if he is good enough for the Queen he is good enough for Birmingham.”

A poll in the Birmingham Mail found 80-percent in favor of him receiving the award and 20-percent against.
