It was a night when all the big names in Hollywood were at the Dolby Theatre… except for two. Sir Paul McCartney and Dave Grohl decided against joining the Oscars' festivities to enjoy an evening out with their wives at a vegan restaurant on Melrose Avenue.
With Nancy Shevell and pregnant Jordyn Blum on their arms, the musicians no doubt took a chance to celebrate (again) their Grammy win for Best Rock Song. McCartney, 71, and Grohl, 45, had teamed up with Ringo Starr and the other surviving members of Nirvana, bassist Krist Novoselic and touring guitarist Pat Smear, to form Sirvana and were awarded at the music ceremony for their track Cut Me Some Slack. ‘This song was two hours in my studio,’ Dave said during his Grammy acceptance speech, ‘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.’
