    Oh is that when you're moving to the Great Southern or it is still Perth area?
     
    OccaQuokka: Yeah i move away on the 15, chronic pain makes for low energy. If I get a burst of mania, no one could stop me haha. Bet security is lax ;)

    Always been a bit in-different to the Foo Fighters. They've done some great stuff (Everlong is a classic), but then a lot of forgettable songs too. And don't ask me for examples because I've forgotten them!:p Think Groul is better as a drummer than frontman.

    Saw the other day than their headlining Glastonbury this year for the first time. Will be interesting to see what sort of set they play.

    Unpopular opinion but people tend to overrate Dave Grohl on the drums. His style is quite simplistic. It's all power, all the time. At least Taylor Hawkins has some light and shade. I prefer him over Dave.
    I like Dave much better as a frontman and think he's way more talented on guitar than drums by far.
     
    Bluebird: Taylor doesn't get his props, he's good!

    I play both the guitar and the drums and Dave is a far better drummer than he is guitar player. His style is simple, but he's incredibly precise. You can listen to his Everlong drum track (the picture shows Taylor, but it's Dave). That is some seriously good and consistent drumming. Of course he's not the most technical drummer ever, but why would he need to be? He's more of a John Bonham kind of drummer. Taylor is a little more versatile than Dave, though.
    But most of all, I think Dave's an insanely good songwriter.
     
    Bluebird and GwenRaiden like this.

    Disagree on Groul as a drummer. Thing is he has played drums for other artists too such as Cat Power. If you listen to his drumming on her own album You R Free it proves that he is more than a one trick pony.

    As a front man I find him a bit overbearing, and he does that thing a lot of just shouting random shit instead of singing the lines. If the songs are good enough, it doesn't matter too much.
