Foo Fighters were welcomed into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame at last night’s induction ceremony. Paul McCartney was on-hand to introduce them, and in his speech he drew a parallel to his experience with the Beatles and Dave Grohl’s with 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?”
“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,” McCartney continued. “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?”
Foo Fighters then came out to perform a few songs of their own, including “Best Of You,” “My Hero,” and “Everlong.” After giving a speech themselves, McCartney joined the band to cover the Beatles’ “Get Back.” Watch videos from the ceremony below.
A proper filmed version of the Rock Hall inductions will air on HBO on November 20.
