Let’s face it, there is no love lost between Courtney Love and Foo Fighters frontman / Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl. In the trailer for her new YouTube Channel, Love recently went as far as asking her public, “Is there anybody on the planet who would be watching this that doesn’t know that Dave Grohl and I don’t get along?” The two have had some very public spats throughout the years, stemming back to the rights held by Love and subsequent use of Nirvana music in the wake of Kurt Cobain’s passing.
Last night (Feb. 9), a momentous television event aired on CBS celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' arrival to the United States. The band's performance on 'The Ed Sullivan Show' introduced America to the Beatles, beginning the biggest rock and roll revolution of all time. In tribute to that day, 'The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles' aired featuring performances from Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, along with Foo Fighters / Nirvana rocker Dave Grohl.
Already a two-time Grammy Award winner before the end of the night, Dave Grohl almost finished the Grammys on another high note. The Foo Fighters frontman joined Queens of the Stone Age, Nine Inch Nails and Fleetwood Mac legend Lindsey Buckingham for the show's closing performance -- at least what we got to see of it.
Dave Grohl took home his second Grammy of the day, this time winning for Best Rock Song at the 2014 Grammy Awards for 'Cut Me Some Slack' with his collaborators Paul McCartney, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear. The song comes from the 'Sound City: Real to Reel' soundtrack, which won earlier in the day for Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media.
As announced late last night, Nirvana have been voted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. This was the first year that the iconic grunge band was eligible for a nomination, and along with Kiss, Peter Gabriel, Hall & Oates, Linda Ronstadt and Cat Stevens, Nirvana will be immortalized at the Hall's 2014 induction ceremony. In response, Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic and drummer Dave Grohl have responded to the honor.
On Nov. 18, 1993, Nirvana took a trip to New York City and taped their iconic 'Unplugged' set for MTV. The special aired less than a month later on Dec. 14, adding yet another immortal moment to Nirvana's vast list of achievements. However, 20 years later, MTV has revealed that at the insistence of Kurt Cobain, drummer Dave Grohl almost didn't perform at the 'Unplugged' set.
