Everlong is my favourite Foo Fighters song. I have to say Dave has inspired many drummers. Bands wants him because he is such a good drummer bands that had him say that he's the best drummer they've ever played with and I think It's okay to say Dave Grohl is probably one of the best rock drummers out there. When it comes to Rock Dave is the man! :)
