Lindsey Buckingham to Perform Grammy Awards Finale with Dave Grohl and Nine Inch Nails #FleetwoodMac

Nine Inch Nails, QOTSA, Dave Grohl and Lindsey Buckingham to Perform Grammy Awards Finale
Grohl is the connective tissue for SMH pairing of alt-rock icons with Fleetwood Mac man

Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age, Dave Grohl, and special guest Lindsey Buckingham will give the closing performance at the 56th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night, SPIN can exclusively reveal. 

"We're incredibly excited about this number," Grammy executive producer Ken Ehrlich said in a statement. "There's nothing better than when the Grammys can rock out, and to have these artists all together on one stage, doing a number that, when they presented it to us, knocked us out, is going to turn out to be one of those Grammy moments that people talk about for a long time. Long live Trent, Josh, Dave and Lindsey and these great bands!" It will be the first-ever Grammy telecast performance for Nine Inch Nails and QOTSA.

Thirteen-time Grammy winner Grohl, as usual, is the connective tissue, having performed extensively with both bands, most prominently on QOTSA's 2002 LP Songs for the Deaf and Nine Inch Nails' 2005 album With Teeth. Fleetwood Mac guitarist/singer Buckingham, of course, is the wild card, and his role — singing a kickass version of "Tusk" or "The Chain," maybe his solo hit "Go Insane"? — remains to be seen. Buckingham appears in Sound City: Real to Reel, the Grohl-directed documentary about the legendary, now-shuttered L.A. studio where many classic albums were recorded; his Fleetwood-Mac-mate, Stevie Nicks, appears in the film and also joined Grohl on the Sound City Players album and tour last year.

The Grammy Awards will be broadcast live at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.

He should do "Tusk". It's a song young people don't even know and was such an odd song to be a hit in the first place. It would knock out the Grammy audience.

This is really awesome! Looking forward to this.
One more reason I love Dave Grohl (and Lindsey of course).

Disappointed that considering it is Dave Grohl, Stevie isn't included as well!!! Just not reason enough to watch the Grammiys anymore... Too much cookie cutter music and auto-tune...


Why Fleetwood Mac not come to Puerto Rico? The forgotten place.
