In its ongoing quest to disrespect the rock genre, the Recording Academy left late Pantera and Hellyeah drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott off the “In Memoriam” segment of the 61st annual Grammy Awards telecast, which aired on CBS from Los Angeles on Sunday night (February 10th). Also left off the segment were fellow hard rock artists Oli Herbert of All That Remains and Kyle Pavone of We Are Romans, who both passed away last year like Abbott. Although the three were listed on the Grammy website’s memorial page, one of the many rockers who called out the Academy for blatantly skipping the three on the telecast was Halestorm singer Lzzy Hale, who was a presenter at the event. Hale pointed out that Abbott was nominated for four Grammy Awards over the course of his career, which ended with his death last July at the age of 54. Other rock artists slammed the Grammys on social media for excluding Abbott and the others, as well as for the Academy’s disregard for rock. No rock awards were given out on the televised ceremony Sunday night — they were all handed out during a pre-telecast ceremony — while the only rock act to perform was Red Hot Chili Peppers.
