Damn, it’s good to see Dave Grohl back behind the drum kit where he belongs. And John Paul Jones looks like he’s having a great time being in a real rock and roll band again. Been a long time, indeed. Josh Homme scares the crap out of me though. I’m pretty sure he’d beat my ass for no reason.
“Mind Eraser” didn’t come across quite as well as “New Fang” but you can see for yourself below. We’re also including the goofy skit from the same episode where Grohl plays drums in a wedding band.
Look at that waveform. No dynamic range whatsoever. It’s a good song, but imagine what it would sound like if you could actually hear the sound of the instruments. It’s as flat and squashed as a McDonald’s hamburger. For shame! Grohl’s drums still manage to sound badass though.
