    This guy is mad on the drums. I absolutely love drumming along to Nirvana, and am a HUGE fan of the Foo Fighters....I can't believe I missed them when they came close to me 3 months ago...they put on over a 3 hour show. :(

    Love this guy. But I must admit...and shoot me if you want to...but I'm not a fan of Nirvana. He's a great drummer though, I just like him better as a front man. Foo Fighters is one of my all time favorite bands.

    Me too. Just went to see them play last month, and man what a show!


    Drum magazine put him at #2 in their list of 10 Heaviest Drummers.
    http://www.drummagazine.com/features...iest-drummers/

    Not sure I would agree with that 100% though. Anyway, they claim he writes all the drum parts for Foo Fighters which is surprising to me since the Foo's drummer is certainly accomplished in his own right.
