(Classic Rock) Jane's Addiction frontman Perry Farrell says the band's nomination for the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame came about thanks to Foo Fighters' leader Dave Grohl.

Earlier this week, Jane's Addiction were confirmed as one of the nominees for next year's event, along with artists including Yes, Pearl Jam and Bad Brains. And Farrell reports that Grohl tipped him off about the news before it became public knowledge - and that the Foos' man had a helping hand in their inclusion.

Farrell tells Eddie Trunk: "I'm very excited about it. When I heard about it, I was on the phone texting, but my feet were clapping. Just recently, Dave Grohl had a fundraiser for his children's school and he invited me to participate. When I was there, he took me in the corner, and said, 'Hey, man, I just want to let you know something. I've been working with the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame - and I got you on the ballot. I hope it all goes well.'" Read more here.
