None other than Paul McCartney was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last night. During his powerful introductory speech, Maca compared his experience at the Beatles to that of Dave Grohl at Nirvana.
“We had a great time with our teams, but then tragedy finally happened and my group broke up. The same thing happened to Dave: his team broke up in a tragic situation. And so the question is, what do you do now? He said. “And that question was presented to both of us. In my case, I thought, ‘Well, I’ll make an album where I’ll play all the instruments myself.’ So I did that. Dave’s team broke up – what does he do? He made an album where he played all the instruments himself. Do you think this guy is chasing me? “
After giving a short but sweet speech of their own, the Fu Fighters served “Best of You,” “My Hero,” and “Everlong” before bringing the McCartney to cover the Beatles’ “Get Back” together.
