Default Is Dave Grohl's voice fine again?

I've heard some people online complain about the Foo's SNL performance last Saturday, because they thought Dave's voice wasn't fine. I know November was a while ago, but remember he had laryngitis at Des Moines last month? Has he recovered? His voice seems fine to me.

I haven't watched SNL yet but when you loose your voice it can take bloody ages to come back properly. I'm exhibit A! Been two weeks and I keep slipping back to croaksville if I talk too much, never mind perform a 3 hour gig screaming!!

if you watched SNL, you know as much as anyone here!

still sounded fairly rough to me. Which is not surprising, recovery will take even longer if you scream for 3 hours several times a week... Hopefully he'll have time to rest over the Xmas break.

he'd better be on peak form by the time I see them in June

Sounds better than it did in Cincinnati in October, but doesn't sound normal. I hope the guys are able to get a bit of a break.

I agree that his voice is kinda rough but not really bad.

I think SNL was fine, IMO his voice was the same it's been for the last decade or so.

I saw him last month in Madison and Champaign and his voice was off. I was planning on Des Moines and Sioux Falls as well but decided to wait until his voice was a little better. I am definitely hoping his voice is back for Foo Years Eve!!!

Dave with a bad voice is still amazing, and I am shocked that they still played for over 3 hours both nights!
