I totally agree with Chathamight on his dynamics; (Also great link by the way). Dave really shows of his ability on the drums with the Vultures, some of the tracks on that album are just pure musical brilliance. But then i would expect nothing less considering he's playing with J.P.J. and Josh Homme who are amazing musicians in their own right. I saw them at the Hammersmith Apollo a little while back before Christmas and Dave Grohl by far is one of the best live drummers i've ever seen, and i've seen a fair few now. The passion and intensity in his playing coupled with his great sense of dynamics, speed and overall ability makes him a pure kick ass drummer and also one of my musical heroes as well.
This is just one example of the kick ass drumming that Dave shows in the Vultures. Great tune as well. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P2XH5KrrPw8
