Former Nirvana Drummer Chad Channing to Be Inducted Into Rock Hall With Ex-Bandmates
Former Nirvana drummer Chad Channing, who had performed on the band's debut album "Bleach," is reportedly scheduled to be inducted into the Rock Hall with his former bandmates.

Future Rock Legends broke the news, noting that Channing confirmed his attendance at the April 10 ceremony in Brooklyn, New York, but has no plans of performing.

The decision is likely to fuel the fire for the institution's bad reputation with double standards. In a similar situation, the original Rush drummer John Rutsey, who like Chad only performed on his band's debut effort, was not inducted.

Additionally, the Rock Hall refused to induct current KISS members Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer, and induct only the group's original lineup.

Apart from previously elaborating his stance in detail, frontman Paul Stanley now took an open jab at Rock Hall committee member Dave Marsh, calling him a "pompous a-s" and "an old fool" via Twitter. "Dave March is a pompous a-s who is a part of the RRHOF. The NY bands in the '70s he loved all sucked. An old fool," Stanley posted.

Marsh is known for bashing some of the ultimate rock greats during his rock critic career, earning him a reputation of "a grumpy rock and roll journalist." Dave wrote various publications for Newsday, the Village Voice and Rolling Stone magazine.

Some of Marsh's dubious critic remarks include calling Freddie Mercury a singer with a merely "passable pop voice," wondering "why anyone would indulge these creeps [Queen] and their polluting ideas." He also described Journey as "a dead end for San Francisco area rock." As far as KISS goes, the critic once noted: "KISS is not a great band, KISS was never a great band, KISS never will be a great band, and I have done my share to keep them off the [Rock Hall] ballot."
