Meanwhile, the Foo Fighters frontman lent his gentle vocals to the In Memoriam tribute at the 88th Academy Awards last night (Sunday 28 February).

While he sang a moving rendition of The Beatles track Blackbird, a montage of industry faces who lost their lives were displayed onto the screen. 

David Bowie, Alan Rickman and Christopher Lee were among those honoured, while the late Leonard Nimoy was given the final word during the dedications, with Dr. Spock saying: I have been - and always shall be - your friend".
