You’re trolling with that stuff about Grohl being one of the five best drummers in rock history, right? He’s good, yeah, he keeps time well, but he’s kind of monodynamic, and he doesn’t exactly swing. He has very little soul, as a drummer, and a very limited range.
And he’s never been any of the “drummers whose playing can achieve a frontman-level presence”. That’s a short, short list. Arguably Budgie, definitely Moon and Bonham and Peart (you may not like him, but if what he does isn’t “frontman-level presence”, nothing any drummer ever did ever was — and Grohl’s a huge Rush fan btw). Then… let’s see… drawing a blank here. That’s about it.
But greater drummers than Grohl? Watts, Moon, Bonham, Peart, Budgie, Paul Thompson, Martin Chambers, Bruford, Orestes Morfin,. Jim Sclavunos, Nick Simms from Cornershop, SCOTTY FUCKING ASHETON, Nicky Headon, Eddie Kalwa, Andy Newmark, Tom Bazylak, at least half a dozen others that don’t spring to mind right now.
All of them are more musical, more interesting, funkier, and have more personality than Grohl. NEIL PEART is funkier than Grohl.
I doubt Grohl would disagree with much of that list either, if any. The guy’s not an idiot.
Ten most annoying ways Amanda Palmer has reminded us that she’s a lot better at self-promotion than music. NTTAWWT.
Also, wtf with the tranny eyebrows?
Also, I lived in Harvard Sq around the time she was whoring for attention as a living statue. I always ignored those retards, so I like to think I did my small part for cosmic justice by ignoring her, specifically. Except everybody else, even tourists, ignored them too. So it’s nothing to brag about.
Your white privilege is showing.
It took the poor man 35 years to find a shirt to wear. LEAVE IGGY ALONE!
Perfect fucking timing.
Williamson, holy shit. The first reunion lineup should’ve been the Raw Power band.
And Scotty is instantly recognizable. What a great, great man.
Where did I say they’re not? I sympathize with Kim Gordon.
I mean, they never do grow up emotionally, but they’re definitely human, in their own funny little way. Hell, I live with one. They’re fun to have around, and the good ones are lovable little critters as long as you keep them in line. Just don’t take them too seriously, or they think you’re desperate and not worth their time.
Oh, dear God, what was she thinking posing for that picture? She looks good for her age, but… no. Not with those legs. She looks like Courtney Love. I understand the urge to try to compete with nubile hotties under the circumstances, but she didn’t have to highlight a feature where she simply can’t.
Stay thirsty, my desperate little friend.
@Thlaylia James — What do you mean, he was lucky to have her when she was 28? Do you mean that she had options? Maybe she did, but at that age they were already starting to narrow down. And hey, they lasted 27 years together. Sounds like she thought she got a pretty good deal, don’t you think? I’m guessing she knows what she had better than you.
Anyway, he’s got all the options now, and at 59, she was damned lucky to have him.
Not lucky enough to keep him, as it turns out. But seriously, assuming they were both faithful all these years (yeah, right), you can’t throw endless rounds of young star-struck pussy at a man for three decades and expect him not to sample a few. I personally think he should’ve kept the side pieces on a strictly impersonal basis, but I’m an old-fashioned sentimentalist.
