Original Nirvana drummer Chad Channing will be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame alongside his former bandmates, it has been revealed.


Channing contributed to Nirvana's debut album 'Bleach' and also laid down parts for the song 'Polly' on the band's album 'Nevermind' before his departure from the band in 1990 when he was replaced by Dave Grohl. Now he, alongside Grohl and Krist Novoselic are set to be officially inducted for 2014.

Channing has claimed that he will be at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on April 10 for the Induction Ceremony, but has no plans to perform reports Spin. This could become a bone of contention among fellow inductees Kiss, who decided not to perform at the Induction Ceremony because of the Rock Hall's decision to exclude additional current and former members of the band.

Following the committee vote, Nirvana, Kiss, Peter Gabriel, Hall And Oates, Cat Stevens and Linda Ronstadt will be inducted, while The E Street Band will be given the Award For Musical Excellence. Artists are eligible for induction 25 years after the release of their first record, meaning Nirvana, who released debut album 'Bleach' in 1989, have been nominated at the first possible opportunity.
