During the Grammy’s pre-award gala artists and executives alike remember the now late Whitney Houston. One of them being Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl who had the following to say to The Hollywood Reporter:

“She’ll be remembered as one of the most iconic vocalists of all time. Not only did she sell 800 bazillion records, but she’s a f—ing amazing singer.”

Bio: Mike Mazarone graduated from the Connecticut School of Broadcasting in 2011 with a degree in communications, basically relegating him to better then you status (Except for boss Brett Buchanan). Before joining the AlternativeNation staff he was a contributor and producer to Brett Buchanan’s pro wrestling/MMA/comedy radio show – Barbaric Wrestling Radio, from 2006 to 2009. Mazzarone’s job there was to be a contributor and book interviews. After the show ended Buchanan hired Mazzarone right away to be AlternativeNation's head reporter.

    word to Dave: suddenly you are everywhere and sometimes people start getting sick of you!

    just to show GRammy hypocrisy, they whipped up some tribute stuff to Whitney Houston last year. pretty much ignored the drug evidence as much as possible.

    yet the GRammys after Layne died did not even mention his name. a POX UPON THEM!

    Dave loves well produced “pop” music. I’m not surprised by his comment. Whitney could actually sing (vs Spears). Too bad she didn’t care enough about herself or her daughter to stop doing drugs. I was never a fan of her work but one can’t deny she did have a powerful singing voice.

    Whitney had a set of pipes in her for sure, even if you didn’t like her music. I think she damaged her voice a lot from smoking cocaine for a long time though. Her last few years of singing were nothing like her earlier days. Still a gifted voice she was though.

    I watched an interview with her mother, and she seemed like a fairly rigid, my way or the highway sort of lady. I found myself wondering if that contributed to Whitney’s drug use. Who really knows though. Not that I don’t feel bad for her in losing her daughter. She did seem to really love her, and I am sure wanted the best for Whitney.
