“It's hard to beat Dave Grohl, isn't it? He played on this record, and as usual, he’s just incredible. The relationship that he has with Josh is pretty important – they’ve done a lot of things together and know how to play off each other well. I mean, I know a lot of it is Josh – from working with him myself, I know that it’s his ideas – but Dave interprets the stuff and does his thing.
“Dave is a great drummer to listen to. He plays with a lot of taste and creativity, and even though he does so many records and projects, he’s always got a new fill that makes you go, ‘Oh, well, I haven’t thought of that.’ He does sort of a mini solo on A Song For The Dead that’s just fantastic. But you know, whatever he tries to do, he pulls it off beautifully.”
