    He starts as drummer of the biggest band of his time, then starts his own world famous group of which he is guitarist and singer. Somewhere in there he drums for Queens of the Stone Age, and continues to dominate with the Foo Fighters.

    Now he has a project in which he makes more great music with everyone from Stevie Nicks to Corey Taylor of Slipknot, and oh, I guess I have some extra time to knock out a cover of Fortunate son for John Fogerty's new album.

    God knows what the hell else. Oh, I almost forgot, he also drummed for Tenacious D AND voiced Satan in their movie. You know why? Because he IS Satan!! It's the only explanation. Humans just don't do that.
     
  2. He also goes on yo gabba gabba and does the PB Stomp. :)

    I forgot about that. I wasn't really paying attention, because I quickly found the show to not be funny, but I remember seeing him and going "What the fuck? Another thing? He's definitely Satan."

    He has had incredible good luck.And talent to go with it.I generally find Foo Fighters videos entertaining.He sometimes strikes me as being a bit of a jock/frat all round too good to be true good guy,but I think that was just because of his boyish looks back in the early days.Maybe he did something exceptionally good in a previous life to be blessed with such good fortune.Either that or yes,he's Satan.

    I was just reminded of another possible candidate for Satan - Danny Elfman.

    He inherited a cabaret act The Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo from his brother and eventually turned into the popular band. Then he did the Simpsons theme song. Then he did The Nightmare Before Christmas including the voice of Jack Skellington. He also did all this -

    I do like Nirvana. I think Dave is a good drummer but the stuff he's done since Nirvana bores me. A friend of mine gave me his 'Probot' album to listen to, and although his dry work was pretty good the songs as a whole seem mediocre. As with many compilation albums it seemed forced.
