Exclusive: Nirvana’s Ex-Drummer Chad Channing Won’t Be Inducted Into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
By Brian Ives
Last week, Future Rock Legends (a blog that follows all things related to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s inductions) posted a story that former Nirvana drummer, Chad Channing who played on their classic debut album, Bleach, would be inducted into the Rock Hall along with Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and Channing’s eventual replacement, Dave Grohl. Unfortunately, that has turned out to be untrue.
Radio.com reached out to Channing over the weekend, for the interview below. At that point he seemed unsure whether or not he was officially being inducted.
Sadly, as we went to press, he emailed us, informing us that he will not be inducted with his former bandmates. He forwarded the text of a message that the Hall of Fame sent to Nirvana’s management saying, “Can you tell whoever looks after Chad Channing that he isn’t being inducted… It is just Dave, Krist and Kurt.”
