I have read a great deal about last night’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2014 Induction. Thanks to the eye of the camera lens which captured two wonderful “emotional” moments that took place for Nirvana. How could the music of our heart not be consoled and glad for all.

“I’m probably going to cry. I’m already crying because he’d be so proud. He’d say he wasn’t, but he would be. I just miss him so much. He was such an angel,” said Kurt Cobain’s mother, Wendy O’Connor, after Nirvana was inducted. Cobain was 27 when he died.

Many Nirvana fans were probably holding their breath last night when Courtney Love walked up to the podium. She’s done little to mask her feelings about Dave Grohl over the years and one never know what she’ll say in front of an open microphone. But Courtney seemed overwhelmed by the moment — particularly after watching Kurt Cobain’s mother cry — and she completely abandoned a long speech she prepared and used the time to pay tribute to her Nirvana “family,” speaking for no more than a minute. When she got to “Mr. Grohl,” she teared up, walked over and gave him an enormous bear hug. It was one of the emotional high points of an extremely emotional night, and a very classy move for Courtney.
