Grohl is so great. He has created some amazing rock drum parts and I love his hard-hitting style:

From the Howard Stern interview (2011):

HS:
Is it true that you are almost deaf from playing rock music?

DG:
My left ear is almost gone.

....
HS:
Doesn't that scare you that you might be deaf?

DG:
Yeah, sometimes. But it's kinda nice....like if...you know...my kids are running around and they're going bananas I sleep on this ear 'cause this one is gone!

Upcoming biography of the band This Is A Call: The Life and Times of Dave Grohl reveals the drummer, already fed up of tensions within the band, decided he'd had enough after overhearing Cobain talking about him on a plane.

The book by Paul Brannigan, to be released on September 29, explains that by 1993, Nirvana had more or less split into two alienated camps with Grohl and bassist Krist Novoselic in one, Cobain and wife Courtney Love in the other.


In the book, Grohl says: "Kurt was kinda f---ed up. And I heard him talking about how s----y a drummer I was."

At flight's end, Grohl learned from Novoselic that Cobain wanted him to "play more like" Mudhoney drummer Dan Peters, who'd briefly occupied Nirvana's throne prior to Grohl. This was the last straw for Grohl, who called Nirvana's tour manager Alex McLeod and told him he wanted "out" of the band.
