Paul McCartney will induct the FOO FIGHTERS into Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame during the 36th annual Induction event on October 30.

McCartney met Dave Grohl in 2002 and the pair have gone on to become friends, according to the FOOS frontman, who recently shared a story with UK television host Graham Norton about the time BEATLE and his wife stopped by his house for a visit while in Los Angeles.

In 2012, McCartney performed the track, "Give Me Some Slack", with the surviving members of NIRVANA at the 12-12-12 benefit concert in New York City and, once again, days later during an appearance on Saturday Night Live; a studio version was released and included on the soundtrack to Grohl's 2013 documentary, "Sound City."
The Rock Hall has announced some of the other presenters for the 201 event: Angela Bassett will welcome Tina Turner; Taylor Swift will recognize Carole King; Drew Barrymore will introduce THE GO-GO's; and, Lionel Richie will induct Clarence Avant for the Ahmet Ertegun Award.
