Dave Grohl at last night's Shockwaves NME Awards in London.
At last night's Shockwaves NME Awards in London, Dave Grohl was crowned a Godlike Genius, the first non-Brit to win the honor. While accepting the award at London's O2 Academy Brixton, Grohl was given a standing ovation, and stated, "You guys realize they gave this one to a drummer, right? This one's for the drummers!"
He reminisced about sneaking his way into the O2 years ago with Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic to see the Pixies, and then dedicated his award to Cobain, saying,
"This one's for Kurt, thank you very much."
The Godlike Genius himself will, of course, grace Washington state this May when the Foo Fighters headline Sasquatch!
In the meantime, check out Foo Fighters performing the Who's "Young Man Blues" last night with Roger Daltrey.
