Watch Dave Grohl pay tribute to David Bowie and Alan Rickman with Beatles cover at Oscars 2016

Foo Fighters star also offered support to ANOHNI prior to performance

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl paid tribute to an array of late stars at the Oscars ceremony last night, performing a cover of The Beatles‘ ‘Blackbird’ for the annual ‘In Memoriam’ segment.

Grohl played the 1968 Beatles track, which first appeared on ‘The White Album’, while a backdrop showed Hollywood stars that passed away over the last 12 months. The clips included tributes to David Bowie and Harry Potter actor Alan Rickman. Watch in full beneath.

Prior to Grohl’s performance, a message on Foo Fighters’ Twitter page offered support to ANOHNI (formerly known as Antony Hegarty), whose scheduled performance at the event was cut due to “time constraints”. ANOHNI later said that the snub reminded her of “inadequacy as a transperson”.
