im only saying Dave cause he's my fave drummer and Taylors my second fave
but its really hard to choose cause the're both naturals and there both as good as each other but they do have different styles. Shit the're like brothers. i want to see them play together, i havnt seen that before!

Hmmm......


Dave's got a hard hitting style with all the rage......


....And Taylor's got a lighter, airery, expression of drum style......




............ They're BOTH great drummers in the own right, they both have the very own unique style of drumming not ever seen or heard,and to me the simple fact that they are not at all alike drumming makes them better than norm....



so, neither?

I get goosebumps just THINKING about hearing him play the drums....I think that seeing him play drums on Monday, even for one song, was one of the coolest things I've ever been lucky enough to witness. I was moving the whole show, but as soon as he got behind that kit, I lost the ability to move any muscle in my body and I just stood there, dead still, in shock, I think. It was weird, but in a good way.

Thumbs up Re: Dave vs Taylor......Whos the better drummer?

you know dave isnt ACTUALLY a drummer is was just the off-chance that he had a natural talent for drumming, one night after he was jamming with Dain Bramage dave started knocking out a drum beat so they decided to fire the drummer and keep him.

anyway in answer to your question i think taylor is a better drummer, dave is a well better frontman

"I've taken one drumming lesson in my life, and quit because I had to relearn everything I knew, I had really stupid bad habits. I don't know . . . I'm just not the drummer eveyone seems to think I am and I do not understand a lot of what's said about me for one minute. Taylor's just unbelievable - he knows how to do fancy rolls and shit. It's wierd, if taylor does an interview, and whenever William (Goldsmith) did an interview, the first question would be 'whats it like being a drummer for Dave Grohl' - as if I'm some fucking drum institution or something. It makes no sense because Taylor's a way better drummer than I'll ever be. I'm a completely minimalistic drummer." - Dave Grohl

Taylor Hawkins.

Though we're comparing two very creative drum machines, who drums more nowadays? Taylor.

Have you seen how many solos Taylor performs during a live show?

Do you know how fucking much Taylor smokes? It's rare to see him without a cigarette. Now, imagine if he didn't smoke at all -- his drum feats would be unstoppable; his endurance: bar none.

Until Dave goes back to drumming full-time, I'm not going to concern myself with the skills he currently possesses. Taylor's one of the best drummers on Earth. Dave's his frontman. Stacked Actors featuring these two rock gods is both a musical and sexual harmony -- LIVE -- on stage. Though, I wouldn't mind another motherfucking drum duel. At all. God DAMN I miss those days...

-Pat

I don't like to choose sides, but Dave is very sought after. He's been doing work with Queens of the Stone Age, NIN, Tenacious D etc.... you decide.

After hearing Dave's drumming with NIN, I vote for Dave. That doesn't mean I think Taylor sucks, though. Tay is still a phenomenal drummer.

I think they are both awesome drummers, but if I had to choose, I would pick Taylor, because Dave is the front man and and doesn't play the drums as often as in his old days (Nirvana). So I think that today Taylor is the better drummer
