Haha. I wish I were Dave Grohl!
No, I play a lot of punk rock, and it's very difficult for me to play that fast on the hats and still get enough power out of my snare without raising the hats higher than I normally would. It really helps to add the extra space.
I used to play with my hats super low before I started playing the fast punk stuff, actually. Almost obnoxiously low.
