DAVE GROHL ON MEETING RUSH: ?I STARTED F?ING CRYING?

I love to read stories like this when famous people like Dave Grohl meet their Idols!  This is from Jeff Giles from the website "Ultimate Classic Rock" It's a great read.

No matter how successful a person might be in his chosen field, he can still have heroes who make him feel like a kid again. Just ask Dave Grohl, who had what sounds like a deeply emotional experience when meeting up with the members of Rush for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony.

Speaking with the Pulse of Radio, Grohl admitted that inducting Rush into the Hall — and later performing with them on stage for a version of ’2112′ — was “one of the most special nights of my life.”

Calling the performance “terrifying” and “amazing” in equal measure, Grohl recalled, “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.” Naturally, all that history meant meeting Rush drummer Neil Peart proved particularly special; as Grohl put it, “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.”

A conversation about Dave Grohl inducting Rush into the Rock Hall seemed like as good a time as any to point out that his former band Nirvana will be eligible for that honor next year. “Wow. I didn’t even know that. Interesting,” he responded. “Well, hopefully they make us wait as long as Rush did, because did you see all their f—ing fans out there tonight?”
