Dave Grohl honored Steve Albini during Foo Fighters’ concert in Charlotte on Thursday night by dedicating the band’s performance of “My Hero” to the In Utero producer.

“Tonight I’d like to dedicate this song to a friend that we lost the other day, who I’ve known a long, long time,” Grohl said. “He left us much too soon. He’s touched all of your lives, I’m sure. I’m talking about Steve Albini. For those of you who know, you know. For those of you who don’t know, just remember that name: Steve Albini. Let’s sing this one for him.”
