2013, the Year of Dave Grohl
Grohl jolted us when he arose from the ashes of Nirvana as the frontman of The Foo Fighters, but no one could have predicted how far his passions would eventually take him. As the most popular and one of the most sought-after drummers around, this guy’s the Bonham of our generation. He continuously proves himself as the musician that never quits, but hey, maybe it’s just all of those fresh pots. In recent news alone, he has given word of another contribution with Queens of the Stone Age, reminded us about the true love that can exist with music as Keynote Speaker at SXSW and just finished up a tour where he shared the stage with many of his personal heroes. But above all these things, his most impressive output is his directorial debut, Sound City. As Grohl told Rolling Stone, “It’s the most important thing I’ve done, because it’s not for me.”
