Don't expect to hear an abundance of drum machines on a Foo Fighters album any time soon. Dave Grohl has revealed his hatred of mixing machine and rock 'n' roll.

Grohl told The Sun: "All that s**t ruins music these days. Drum machines work for pop artists but when it comes to rock 'n' roll - don't f**k with the human element.

"I had favourite drummers because of their inconsistencies. Modern production has robbed drummers of personalities and it really p**ses me off."
