Following the announcement of Nirvana
's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
induction, Dave Grohl
couldn't contain the excitement as he posted a brief comment regarding the prestigious honor.
"For once ... I'm speechless,"
said Foo Fighters
mainman and Nirvana's former drummer. "From the basements, to the dingy clubs, to the broken down vans, to… the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.
"I'd like to thank the committee not only for this induction, but also for recognizing Nirvana for what we were: pure rock and roll,"
Dave noted (via Blabbermouth
). "Most of all, thank you to all of the fans that have supported rock and roll throughout the years, and to Kurt and Krist, without whom I would not be here today."
Bassist Krist Novoselic
chipped in, adding, "This is a great honor. Thank you to the people who nominated and voted for us. Thank you most of all to Kurt Cobain. And to everyone who's kept rock music going strong for 60 years and counting."
