When an All-Star Grammy Finale With Lindsey Buckingham Got Cut Short by Ads

Fleetwood Mac star Lindsey Buckingham joined two of today’s most popular rock bands, Nine Inch Nails and Queens of the Stone Age, for the final performance of the 2014 Grammy Awards.

Buckingham appeared alongside Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor on a starkly lit stage to recreate his role on the song “Copy of A” from the group’s recent Hesitation Marks album. If that seems like an odd combination, it turns out that the two are actually neighbors and have clearly struck up a mutual musical admiration society.

Buckingham then hung around to join Queens of the Stone Age for a performance of “My God is the Sun,” from their Grammy-nominated album … Like Clockwork. Foo Fighters leader and sometime QOTSA drummer Dave Grohl joined in for this part as well. Unfortunately, their performance was cut off by promotional messages for Hilton hotels and various other sponsors.

That led to a memorable retort from Rezner:

Understandable. After all, we sat through your pop songs. How about waiting until the rock and roll is over before starting the ads next time, huh?
