Foo Fighters perform The Beatles’ ‘Get Back’ live with Paul McCartney at Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame induction

The Foo Fighters were inducted into the 2021 Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame over the weekend.

During the ceremony, Dave Grohl and co. performed The Beatles’ “Get Back” with none other than Paul McCartney. The performance closed out the night, as Foo Fighters were brought on stage by McCartney. First, the band performed a medley of “Best Of You,” “My Hero,” and “Everlong.” Then, McCartney returned to the stage for a performance of “Get Back.”

McCartney also inducted the Foo Fighters into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. In his speech, McCartney likened Grohl’s career trajectory to his own. “I fell into rock & roll, I joined a group,” McCartney explained. “My group was the Beatles. Like I say, the world changed. Dave did a similar kind of thing. he joined a group, Nirvana.”

Paul McCartney’s Speech:

“We had a great time with our groups, but eventually tragedy happened and my group broke up. Same happened with Dave,” McCartney continued at his Rock and Roll Hall of Fame speech. “His group broke up under tragic circumstances. So the question is, what do you do now? We both were presented with that question.”

“In my case, I said, ‘Well, I’ll make an album where I play all the instruments myself.’ So I did that. Dave’s group broke up, what’s he do? He makes an album where he plays all the instruments himself. Do you think this guy’s stalking me?”
