Dave Grohl says he and Courtney Love are "family".

The 45-year-old rocker, who has had a frosty relationship with Courtney in the past, has claimed the pair have put their feud behind them and their recent hug at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony was "real".

Courtney joined former Nirvana stars Dave and Krist Novoselic onstage as the band, which was fronted by her late husband Kurt Cobain, were inducted into the Hall of Fame in April.

Dave told The Hollywood Reporter: "It was the Hall of Fame ceremony, but it meant so much to all of us personally that sometimes you forgot about the other stuff - like the arena and the trophy - and focused on real, personal things.

"I saw Courtney walking past [earlier in the night], and I just tapped her on the shoulder and we looked at each other in the eyes and that was it - we're just family.

"We've had a rocky road. We've had a bumpy past, but at the end of the day we're a big family and when we hugged each other it was a real hug."

Courtney's reconciliation with Dave comes on the 20-year anniversary of Kurt's suicide in 1994.

The star recently called her late husband's bandmates "class acts".
