Foo Fighters were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame last night by none other than Paul McCartney. During his powerful introduction speech, Macca likened his experience in the Beatles to Dave Grohl‘s experience in Nirvana.
“We had a great time with our groups, but then eventually tragedy happened, and my group broke up. The same happened with Dave: His group broke up under tragic circumstances. And so then the question is, what do you do now?” he said. “And we both were presented with that question. In my case, I thought, ‘Well, I’ll make an album where I play all the instruments myself.’ So I did that. Dave’s group broke up — what’s he do? He makes an album where he plays all the instruments himself. Do you think this guy’s stalking me?”
After giving a short but sweet speech of their own, Foo Fighters performed “Best Of You,” “My Hero,” and “Everlong” before bringing McCartney out to cover the Beatles’ “Get Back” together.
