  • Drum Workshop Snags Big-Name Drummers

    Jay-sus, man. Lots of changing musical drum thrones lately in terms of endorsements. Sonor and Tama are the big losers here as Thomas Lang and Dave Grohl jump ship to sign on with DW. Also joining them in Drum Workshop’s ample, woody bosom are extreme metal master Derek Roddy, Creed stickman Scott Phillips, studio legend John J. R. Robinson, and Muse drummer Dominick Howard.

  • Dave Grohl for President?

    Former Nirvana bassist and current blogging renegade Krist Novoselic makes the case in this post from the Seattle Weekly. Grohl’s relevant qualifications and experience:

    • “His ability to lead is without question.”
    • “The Foo Fighters have rocked the world with their message of compassion and hope.”
    • “He’s a straight shooter both with drum fills and policy proposals.”

    Hell yeah! Send us a form to sign, and we’ll make sure the i’s are dotted, the t’s are crossed, and there ain’t a hanging chad in sight. Of course, we’re not quite sure how Grohl is going to survive this video, but if Bush can get away with being a rank jackass for eight years, anything is possible.

  • Dave Grohl to Play With Zeppelin?

    After last month’s one-off Led Zep gig, the reunion rumors kicked in with full force, and now Dave Grohl is reportedly interested in taking over the drum chair….Well, yeah, who the fuck wouldn’t want that gig? It seems likely, though, that Jason Bonham will handle the stick swinging duties should Zeppelin actually tour. Grohl himself said as much to NME.com in this interview:

    I am at their beck and call, but Jason should be the one….It should be Jason and everyone knows that, it should be Jason. And Jason’s a fucking phenomenal drummer, you know? And he’s a really sweet guy, he’s a really good guy. They seem like a family, they feel like a family that have been around for a long time.
