I'm gonna revive this thread and say Radiohead was the best band of the 90s. Pablo Honey, The Bends and OK Computer prove that to me.
But this is a Dave Grohl thread and I'll put forth the he doesn't get nearly the credit he deserves as a drummer. I just caught some of the Foo Fighters at the Wembley concert and he hopped on the kit and played while Taylor Hawkins sang and they were joined by Page and Jones. They did Rock & Roll by Zep and he just killed. Not to mention his drumming contributions to QOST, Probot, Garbage, The Prodigy and on and on.
I think he has the kind of talent that Prince has. Songwriting, singing, multi-instrumentalist and great performer. That's rare. As others said, he just "gets" music.
