Foo Fighters singer Dave Grohl dedicated his award to former Nirvana bandmate, Kurt Cobain last night, after being described a ‘God-like genius’
NMEs editor, Krissi Murison described the Foo Fighter as “one of the most important rock stars alive today” as Grohl became the first ever non Brit to win the award.
Dave Grohl was part of Nirvana before Kurt Cobain committed suicide in 1994, and went on to from the Foo Fighters. He will go down as one of the most successful rock stars of all time.
Grohl, who accepted his award from The Who frontman Roger Daltrey said, “I hoped that one day I could be in a band that was big enough to f***ing play the Brixton Academy.” “This one’s for Kurt, thank you very much” before joining Daltrey on stage to kick off his set.
