I count Grohl as one of our national treasures.  He's about as down to earth as you can be, and taught several generations that you can just pick up an instrument and make music.  You might not make money at it, but holy shiat is it fun, and it changes your brain in some pretty healthy ways too.

The Foo Fighters and the Goo Goo Dolls became famous at roughly the same time, as far as I recall. In fact, for the first few months I thought they were the same group.

Old man voice: "Goo, foo, what's the difference?"

In my defense, I was drinking rather heavily that year.

When they get inducted into the Hall of Fame next year, the bad thing won't be that Dave Grohl is a double inductee.  No, it'll be that Pat Smear isn't.

Let me google that for you!  It comes from WW2 pilots over Europe describing phenomena.  Look it up.

F*ck that guy.

The thing I struggle with is that Grohl is a phenomenal and expressive drummer and all that talent is sitting on the sideline. Sure, he's got a million side projects where he drums, but.... come on.

I saw them like 5 years ago.  I saw them twice in 3 days.
I'm not even a huge fan, but I really enjoyed the show.

Not a fan of the FF at all, but Dave seems like such a good guy and knowing one of the things that made him inspired to get into music was seeing the great Naked Raygun, in the old Cubby Bear none the less makes me like him even more. Chicago punk for the win (always).

Why would Pat Smear have been inducted as a member of Nirvana? Wasn't he just their touring guitarist for the final part of their career? He is not a credited musician on Bleach, Nevermind or In Utero... their only three studio albums.

too bad instead of fighting HIV/AIDS  he had 8-10 years of supporting HIV denialism when it mattered.

human scum.

My understanding is Cobain had him as a full fledged member, not just a touring musician.

I always equated grohl's drumming to Ringo Starr. Not great or impressive, but every beat fits the song, nothing overdone. That said imho his best work was with tenacious d.

Yes that was a good album. I guess I have a built in bias: Been playing drums for over 30 years. A few touring bands, every style from Led Zepplin cover to electronic industrial to classic punk rock. My idea of monster is "can I do that?" I've not heard grohl do anything that makes me wonder.

I'm sure Grohl would be the first person to tell you to keep going with it; he is extremely supportive of musicians. In addition to being very talented musically, he is an extremely gracious human being.
