Foo Fighters' Chris Shiflett On Possibly Entering The Rock Hall Of Fame

April 4, 2017

With the 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony only days away, the controversy surrounding Pearl Jam and former drummer Dave Abbruzzese getting snubbed from the awards has stood at the forefront of the organization's annual drama.

While speaking with Alternative NationFoo Fighters guitarist Chris Shiflett commented on the Pearl Jam situation and the Foos possible induction after 2020. "I said to Dave [Grohl] when all of that stuff was going on, ‘Look, I didn’t play on the first three f**kin’ Foo Fighters records, but you better get me into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame if that ever happens! I’m going in baby!" said Shiflett.

When asked if being inducted was something he looked forward to, Shiflett said it would definitely be exciting, though it's not something he thinks about frequently. “It’s something I honestly have never thought about at all, but I mean sure of course, that would be amazing. It’s like when you go to the Grammys. I didn’t grow up dreaming of winning Grammys, but we’ve won some over the years, and it’s great. It’s a super fun night, you put your nice suit on, it’s a big party. It’s like the one time in your life your parents go, ‘Wow, wait to go, you’re really doing something good!’"

Shiflett continued, saying, "It’s just good, it sort of validates your crazy life choices to your family I think in the long run, those kind of events. I don’t know what the rules are for going into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, I don’t know how any of that s**t works. I really don’t pay any attention to it, but if it ever happened, I would not complain.”
