Dave Grohl on Nirvana's Hall of Fame Induction: 'For Once, I'm Speechless'
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." Nirvana are scheduled to be inducted on April 10 ceremony Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York alongside KISS, Peter Gabriel, Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band, Cat Stevens, Hall and Oates, Linda Ronstadt, Andrew Loog Oldham and Brian Epstein.
