This a great way to measure talents of rock musicians who make multi-platinum recordings each time they make a record. Your guitarist who has been playing guitar for a year can play 3- chord rock... Wow amazing. Listen up, Dave Grohl plays rock music. He isn't leading an orchestra. Last time I checked rock was about playing your instrument loud and having a good time. Also when does rock drumming have to be about fills? Most good rock drummers know when to lay back and keep the beat. Think Phil Rudd of ACDC. Rock for the most part isn't about improvisation. Another thing, what's wrong with Dave's voice? He sings in key doesn't he? Your arguments are not very convincing. You may not like Dave Grohl and that's fine. However, he is a very respected and talented musican with a lot of accomplishments. He didn't get where he is today because he isn't talented.
