Dave Grohl's hometown of Warren, Ohio recently honored the musician with record breaking 900-lb. drumsticks. Grohl, who got his start in Nirvana, is considered by many to be an amazing drummer, but he is also a powerhouse frontman for the Foo Fighters. That leads me to wonder, do you prefer Grohl behind a drum set or behind a mic? I'm having a hard time deciding myself.

    He will always be a drummer, and still calls himself so.... Personally, it doesn't matter to me, as I love the man no matter what he does. As long as he makes great music for me to listen to. It's all good. mmmmmmmmm..... Dave.

    He'll always be a drummer in my mind because I've listened to Nirvana my whole life but on the other Hero is an awsome song.

    I loved Nirvana back in the day, Dave kicked ass on them drums too, but he has earned his stripes and like Phil Collins can leave the drums behind

    Foo Fighters are alright, but Nirvana's records were game-changing groundbreakers thanks in part to his intense drum work. Also, the best QOTSA CD was Songs For The Deaf, again largely because of his drum work. Everlong notwithstanding, there aren't a whole lot of Foo songs that I consider iconic...

    ... except for THE BEST! THE BEST! THE BEST! THE BEST! THE BEST! THE BEST! THE BEST! THE BEST! THE BEST! THE BEST! THE BEST! THE BEST! THE BEST! THE BEST! THE BEST! THE BEST! THE BEST! THE BEST!

    Go see them in concert. Watch him draw the people in the nose-bleed seats of an NHL arena, into the show, like they're the only ones in the room. Listen to they lyrics and enjoy the show. If you see them live, I'll bet you become a Foo Fan.

    I love that this is basically tied!! Grohl is an amazing musician all around, but I had to go with frontman, because there are a lot of amazing drummers, but not many frontman can captivate their audiences and win over the crowd like I've witnessed Grohl do. I pity any band that has to go on after Foo Fighters.

    I like him as a drummer because he is great at it and I love Nirvana, and Im just not that big of a fan of Foo Fighters, I think he is a sale-out as a frontman, Foo Fighters were the total opposite of The underground low profile go with the flow band, Like Nirvana Was.

    He was the drummer for one Nirvana album compared to being a frontman for an even more successful band with 11 times as many albums. Hmmmm.... which should he be honored for more?

    Go listen to every song you can find on YouTube, from Nirvana and Foo Fighters, then come back.
    This should get you started.

    He makes a really good front man in a Pop band, but he was also really good in Nirvana.

    Pop is boy-bands, bubble-gum princeses, and very VERY light rock. Foo is a rock band. Everyone had Metalica and the Rolling Stones too, but I don't think anyone would have called either of them "pop". The style is very obviously rock.
