    Default Do You Play With Your Teeth? Dave Grohl Does

    Did anyone see this interview with Dave Grohl explaining how he plays drums with his teeth? I've been doing this all my life but his is much more involved with more intricate patterns.

    Any of you guys do this? It's terrible for your teeth. It grinds them down over time.

    Done it my whole life.
    In fact my "teeth kit" sounds better than the kits I see and hear in local bars.

    To hear this weird story (especially on Howard Stern) makes me wonder about some things I have heard over the years.

    I learned on pillows and left my teeth to what they were designed for.

    Yes!! I have done this for as long as I can remember. I also grind my teeth in my sleep, and I am told it sounds horrible.

    I did this for years and years, I broke myself of it about twenty years ago at the recommendation of my dentist.

    I told my dentist that I did that and he didn't even respond. I guess he figured, if I ruin my teeth, it keeps him in business.
