Default Dave Grohl Tops List of Best Drummers of the Decade on www.ithp.org

Can't argue with this. Like the Foo Fighters, but Dave belongs behind the drums.

Gotta love that it was one by a guy who's maybe had a combined 2 years as a full-time drummer this decade.....

Who won? that link didn't work for me.



You're playing drums again. Have you regressed at all?
What the fuck is that supposed to mean? Do my knuckles drag on the floor now, is that what you're saying?

Just that it might be a little simpler than being a frontman...
You think my fucking job is simple, man? If it's so simple maybe you should try it. You go up there for an hour and a half, you do what I do and see if your knuckles are dragging.

I thought Tym was saying someone beat him to the punch for the top spot that had only had 2 years of band drumming experience. I thought 'Tops' could have meant 'in the top 3'.

Oh I see. Session work has to count for something though.

If session work counts then there's tons of drummers that deserve the title more.

Still, Dave is a beast behind the kit so he should be included somewhere if not perhaps winning it.

I was suprised by that answer when I read it. Doesn't sound very "Dave".

Dave should ONLY be a drummer.

I know right, but then again any drummer must feel annoyed when their job is made out to be simple, especially one as good as Dave.

I guess so. I thought the journalist was implying there must be less pressure than being a frontman, that sort of thing.

yeah, when i read that (btw, i think this interview is in this month's Q magazine, check fooarchive.com) i was thinking either dave was in a really, really bad mood, or he was pissed at the stupid ass questions the interviewer was asking. either way, i thought it was hilarious. good for him to not always be "the nicest guy in rock"

go Dave I hate people who think the drummer is the least important member of a band, like it would sound the same with anybody playing drums..
