One person not stoked about Halestorm winning the Grammy for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance on Sunday night? Shadows Fall drummer Jason Bittner. The outspoken skinsman posted the following, no-holds-barred note on his Facebook page:
“Well I know I’m gonna get a lot of shit for this but I just don’t care anymore…. How the FUCK does Maiden, Megadeth, LOG, and my “other family” ANTHRAX lose the Grammys to ________ (not gonna say the name)!!!! Shit is rotten in the music business and this proves it!!! And I thought the Jethro Tull thing in 1989 was bad enough but this beats it hands down!!! “
