Former Nirvana Drummer Finds Out Via Text He’s Not Going Into Rock Hall


This is definitely a double-burn for the books.

Over the weekend, it was reported that former Nirvana drummer Chad Channing was going to be inducted alongside Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It turns out that that news is false.

According to, not only is Chad not going to be inducted, but he found out via text.  The Rock Hall sent a text to Nirvana’s management asking, “Can you tell whoever looks after Chad Channing that he isn’t being inducted…  It is just Dave, Krist and Kurt,” which was then forwarded to him!

First, Chad’s not going to be inducted, but then he finds out through a text message?!

Look…it was pretty controversial news that Chad was going to be included with Nirvana (especially if you’re a fan of or in KISS), but he could’ve been let down with a little more gently.
