Earlier this month, we learned Dave Grohl would be on hand at the 2016 Oscars for a special performance. It turned out to be a touching, subtle cover of The Beatles' "Blackbird" to soundtrack the show's 2016 in memoriam tribute reel.
Paul McCartney originally wrote the White Album song to salute the 1960s civil rights movement, but in this instance, it took on a somewhat different meaning. Playing just his acoustic guitar, the Foo Fighters frontman sang "Blackbird" while the Oscars' big screen highlighted members of the industry who died over the past twelve months. This included Christopher Lee, Leonard Nimoy, Alan Rickman, and of course, David Bowie.
