Dave Grohl tooks on the last 10-minute slot and he delivered an emotional eulogy. Grohl briefly said:
“He’s my hero. He’s the one true rock and roller that bridged my love of AC/DC, and Sabbath, and Zeppelin, with my love of GBH, the Ramones, and Black Flag. So I walked up, and said, ‘Excuse me Lemmy, I don’t want to bother you, but you’ve influenced me so much. You’re my musical hero. I’m a musician, I play in the Foo Fighters, and I was in Nirvana.’ He looked up to me from the video game, and the first think he ever said to me, he said, ‘I’m sorry about your friend Kurt.’”
