It's true Taylor is an amazing drummer but Dave has a longer time of experience on his side, lets not forget he also drummed for one of the most amazing bands ever-Nirvana, and Q.O.T.S.A, I would have to say Dave is the slightly better drummer but it's not fair to compare them.

My opinion as a drummer:
Taylor is a better drummer than Dave when it comes to technique and dynamics.

My opinion as a fan:
Dave is very powerful and to be honest, I get more exited watching Dave play than Taylor...

Damn, I couldn't edit my post! I wanted to say more

Taylor and Dave are both unique in their own style.
It IS hard to compare them.
Can you imagine putting the two together?
Now THAT would be an awsome style!!!

Taylor is technically a better drummer than Dave, so i voted for Taylor
but personally I enjoy watching Dave playing more than Taylor, Dave just has that thing about him when he's playing and it totally shines trought no matter how simple the beat he's playing is

Talking Re: Dave vs Taylor......Whos the better drummer?

The force that Dave plays with wins it for me, although Taylor is a quality drummer as well. Some of the songs are really hard to play on the drums,but Dave wins it for me......just.....

Why everyone always compares this two guys. Both are great drummer and it's senseless to say that dave is the better drummer or taylor.

Simply enjoy their drumming and get on jumping.

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

er Taylor drums in probably the worlds coolest band but daves drummed in the worlds coolest band NIRVANA oh wait QOTSA, NIN, fuck he even drummed foo fighters. if this doesnt convince you that dave rocks as a drummer lets look at the history

Dave Grohl : NIRVANA

Taylor Hawkins : Alanis Morisette

Enough said i think

But Dave was only drumming for Nirvana for like 3 and a half years in total.

Taylor has been drumming for the foos for 8 years.

How long you have been drumming doesn't mean alot. Ringo Star has been drumming for like 40 years and besides good ability to keep time he's got nothing on Dave and Taylor.

I'd say Dave... but ive heard Dave's Nirvana, Foo, Pocket watch, and Queens stuff. ive only heard Taylors Foo stuff which is amazing but im saying dave.

i wish i could have seen one of the shows where Dave and Taylor did a drum duel that i heard about.
