Re: Dave Grohl
I think the reason Dave Grohl is such a GOOD and influential drummer is that he simply gets 'music' overall.
His beats, although not super super technical, are always perfect for the type of music he is drumming for. He is also very versatile.
An album to check out is the recent self titled Killing Joke album which Dave provides drums on (because of the whole Nirvana plagarisim thing).
Im not really into Killing Joke's semi-metal sound, but Daves driving drums just sound so damn good at it.
As for Songs for the Deaf. I can never do any sort of work listening to that album, as i find myself compulsively air drumming till i injure my shoulders.
I should really check out that NIN record, sounds interesting.
