Default Re: Dave Grohl on "Wasting Light"

I'm going for the hijack here to say that I can't stand Steve Albini's idea of the idea live drum sound. Call me a sell-out, but I'll take Butch Vig any day; at least he's a drummer who appreciates getting good drum sounds - not just a bunch of room mics scattered around the room to pick up the kit from every angle but none closer than 6 feet to the actual kit.

You couldn't pay me to have Albini trash my drum sound. He should have stuck to the drum machine that made him famous to begin with (Big Black).
