Mumford & Sons React To Their Big Grammy Night

Mumford & Sons
Days after their Grammy win for Album of the Year for their sophomore record Babel, Mumford & Sons have had time to reflect on their big night. Speaking to Rolling Stone, keyboardist Ben Lovett revealed he'd jokingly told Adele, "she should read out our name no matter who it was." Bassist Ted Dwane added, "It felt really weird. We'd been [to the Grammys] a few times. The physiological experience of sitting there and being shortlisted and calling out someone else's name was rehearsed. But this third time, we won. They called us up. And it was the big one, as well. Really crazy."

As for the rest of the night's performers, singer/guitarist Marcus Mumford said, "Bruno Mars was f---ing amazing. He's a badass. When he played with Sting, that was sick. I've heard so many things about Frank Ocean. Now I really want to go hear his record."

Dwane added, "I remember seeing the Black Keys at a venue twice the size of this dressing room. I was a die-hard fan. It's just so weird being in a category with them. Sitting next to them, these people I've had posters of. I was in tears." Banjo player Winston Marshall said his highlight of the night was meeting Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello. He told Rolling Stone, "It meant a lot to me. I was a bit too young to see Rage before their hiatus, but I went to every single Audioslave show in London. I went to three in a row once. I f---ing loved that band. I loved Tom Morello. To have him liking our music – apparently he'd been to our gigs – for me was just f---ing surreal. We talk to these people, and whether it's f---ing Jack White or Elton John, they're just lovely people who love music as much as you do."
