Dave Grohl helped induct Rush into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this month and he says it was one of the greatest moments of his career. During a recent interview with Pulse of Radio, the Foo Fighters fronter said he even cried when first meeting drummer Neil Peart.

"When I got 2112 when I was eight years old, it f—ing changed the direction of my life. I heard the drums. It made me want to become a drummer," he explained.

"This man was as influential as any religion or any hero or any person in someone's life. He said, 'So nice to meet you. Can I make you a coffee?' And he made me a coffee, man. And later on that night, I went to dinner and had a couple glasses of wine and I started f—ing crying because my hero made me a f—ing coffee," he added.

When asked about Nirvana's eligibility for the Rock Hall next year he responded:

"Wow. I didn't even know that. Interesting. Well, hopefully they make us wait as long as Rush did, because did you see all their f—ing fans out there tonight?"
