Courtney Love And Dave Grohl Reconcile At Rock Hall Ceremony

The long feuding duo of Courtney Love and Dave Grohl have set aside their differences on the eve of Nirvana‘s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, showing that there was no bad blood between the two despite years of much-publicised disputes by embracing on the ceremony stage.

According to Rolling Stone, Love, a divisive and controversial figure since her marriage to Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain in 1992 and even more so following the rocker’s death in 1994, was booed during her speech, which acknowledged the harmonious and reconciliatory mood of the event.

“I have a big speech, but I’m not gonna say it. We all start bands when we’re kids and this is my family I’m looking at right now,” she said. “I just wish Kurt could have been here. Tonight he would have really appreciated it,” Love finished, before embracing both “Brother Krist” and Grohl.

The band’s subsequent performance at the induction ceremony was fronted by a group of notable female musos — Lorde, Joan Jett, St Vincent, and former Sonic Youth bass player Kim Gordon — who each lent their vocals to a selection of Nirvana classics, including Lithium and All Apologies.
