My wifey loves the Foo Fighters. LOVES them. She thinks Dave Grohl is a genius.
But when she overhears me listening to some metal bands, she will instinctively make fun of me and say that it’s just noise.
And that’s what I don’t get… Dave Grohl screams just as much as the singers in the metal bands I listen to. Look at every picture of Dave Grohl singing… he’s got those neck veins popping and he looks like he’s either going to pop an aneurysm in his brain.
So how is Dave Grohl’s singing, like in this concert shot in Sydney:
Any different from say, Dani Filth’s singing?
Don’t get me wrong, I do like quite a few songs from the Foo Fighters. But I’m just wondering why the wifey likes one but hates the other? Cos it couldn’t possibly be that she’s got double-standards, right?
The thing is, Dave Grohl sounds just fine when he’s not trying to make his carotid artery explode. Check out this video, also shot in Sydney… and not too far away from my high school, no less!
