Grohl picked for Rock Hall with Nirvana

December 17, 2013 - Andy Gray
Nirvana, featuring Warren native Dave Grohl on drums, is among six acts that will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014.

Joining Nirvana will be KISS, Peter Gabriel, Linda Ronstadt, Cat Stevens and Hall & Oates. The Rock Hall announced the Class of 2014 early this morning. Beatles' manager Brian Epstein and producer Andrew Loog Oldman will receive the Ahmet Ertegun Award for Lifetime Achievement, and the E Street Band will be inducted under the Award for Musical Excellence.

In a statement released this morning by his publicist, Grohl said, “For once... I'm speechless. 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. 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.”

This year’s induction ceremony will be April 10 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
