Dave Grohl Dedicated His NME Award to Kurt Cobain


Grohl paid a tribute to Kurt Cobain by dedicating his Godlike Genius Award to Cobain at the NME in London on Wednesday night, February 23.

Foo Fighters' frontman Dave Grohl dedicated his NME Godlike Genius Award to his late Nirvana bandmate Kurt Cobain in London on Wednesday night, February 23.

The drummer was handed the accolade during the star-studded ceremony at the O2 Academy in Brixton, where famous friends like Sir Paul McCartney, Jack Black and his Them Crooked Vultures bandmates Josh Homme and John Paul Jones paid tribute to the rocker in video messages.

After letting a standing ovation subside, Grohl joked, "You guys realize they gave this one to a drummer, right? This one's for the drummers!" He then recalled an incident when he once sneaked into the venue, previously called the Brixton Academy, with his Nirvana bandmates to watch the Pixies perform. He finished his acceptance speech by dedicating his award to Cobain, who died in 1994. Grohl told the crowd, "This one's for Kurt."

The Foo Fighters then took to the stage and launched into a full set, inviting The Who's Roger Daltrey onstage to join them for a rendition of "Young Man Blues". Grohl announced, "Oh, and by the way, they asked us to play tonight and we thought, 'Yeah, ok sure'. And they said, 'Why don't you do four or five songs?' and I said, 'F**k that, why don't we play for two f**kin' hours!' And I also said, 'Why don't we play a song with an actual godlike genius, Mr Roger Daltrey?' "
