Original Nirvana drummer to be inducted with band

March 14, 2014

Today, SPIN reported that Nirvana‘s original drummer, Chad Channing, will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year, alongside Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl.  

Channing played drums on Nirvana’s first album, Bleach in 1989. He would be replaced by Dave Grohl shortly after.

The Spin article brings up a question as to whether Channing should be inducted into the Hall of Fame with the band. I say yes, because he actually recorded with the band on its first album. This is not a Pete Best situation, where he did not actually record an album with The Beatles. If it were that case, I would say leave him out. Channing did attribute to the recordings of one of the most successful bands in history, he deserves some recognition.

Rock question of the week:

Do you think Chad Channing should be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?
