Default Re: Dave Grohl

Playing technical and busy is great and all but the question I always ask myself is, "does it fit the music? does it have the right feel?"...

Too many drummers get caught up in trying to play fancy, like they feel the need to show off for some reason. Gives me a sense of insecurity.
If what they were playing fit the song, great, but most of the time it does not.
Just sounds like a drum solo laid on top of a guitar riff.

Dave gets my respect for playing for the song. Simple, powerful, and with the right feel.
He is a good musician.
