Warren native had big social media moment at Rock Hall induction
April 13, 2014 - Chris Pugh
Warren native Dave Grohl had a big part this past week at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony.
Grohl was a drummer for the 1990s megaband Nirvana and was the first up to speak when the band was introduced.
"It was about doing it for real," Grohl told the crowd at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. "And the reward was doing it right and doing it for real. I got really lucky."
The band's lead singer, Kurt Cobain, committed suicide nearly 20 years ago, and Grohl has had a frosty relationship with Cobain's widow, Courtney Love Cobain.
But the pair seemed to put aside their differences for one night as they shared a hug.
On a night of many posts on social media, their moment seemed to resonate with fans as over 5,500 of them shared a picture of the two hugging from Courtney's Twitter account.
The hug didn't quite carry the interest of Ellen's selfie shot with famous people at the Academy Awards but was a touching moment that may across the world connected with on Thursday night.
TIME TO CRACKLE? -- Looking for an inexpensive cord-cutting option instead of cable?
You can watch the movie and television show service for free on your computer and mobile devices, but there's a catch.
There are ads through the programming.
But if you don't mind, there are some gems there.
The service offers ten Seinfeld episodes per month, Jerry Seinfeld hosts his popular "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" web series and the service offers reasonably current movies and seasons of TV shows.
Give it a try and let me know what you think.
