LOS ANGELES, CA - FEBRUARY 12: Musician Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters performs onstage at the 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards held at Staples Center on February 12, 2012 in Los Angeles, California.

Dave Grohl has issued a clarification about his Grammy acceptance speech, essentially Auto-Tuning the message he was sending about keeping things imperfect. 

While accepting the Foo Fighters' award for Best Rock Performance at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday, Grohl caused a beeping-mad backlash with the following pro-analog pomp:

"To me this award means a lot because it shows that the human element of music is what's important. Singing into a microphone and learning to play an instrument and learning to do your craft, that's the most important thing for people to do... It's not about being perfect, it's not about sounding absolutely correct, it's not about what goes on in a computer. It's about what goes on in here [your heart] and what goes on in here [your head]."

In a statement on Friday, Grohl calls the 33-second chatter "not the Gettysburg Address" and attempts to make amends with the electronically offended.
