Rock categories at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards dominated by Classic Rock legends

Led Zeppelin scored their first performance Grammy in the Best Rock Album category for "Celebration Day."

Dave Grohl and Paul McCartney Accept the Best Rock Song Grammy
Dave Grohl and Paul McCartney took Best Rock Song for "Cut Me Some Slack" from "Sound City: Real To Reel."
"We wouldn't be here if it weren't for Paul and for Ringo," Dave Grohl said while accepting the award. "This song was two hours in my studio. I called up Paul and said, 'Hey, man, do you want to come jam with some friends of mine?' He came over, we knocked this out in a couple of hours, and to me, that’s what rock'n'roll is all about."
McCartney chimed in, adding, "He said, 'Do you want to come over and do a jam on 'Long Tall Sally?' I said, 'No, we've been there, done that. We should make something up, and that's what this is."
Paul & Ringo
Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr did share a stage at Sunday's Grammy Awards, performing McCartney's 2013 release "Queenie Eye." Not exactly a Beatles reunion, but it was cool to see them together again.
Metallica Gets Revenge
After being on the losing end of one of Grammy’s most notorious awards — Jethro Tull‘s 1989 win for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance — Metallica returned to the stage to rock the song that should have earned them an award a quarter century ago.
