Dave Grohl is the Michael Carrick of music
Don’t worry none-football fans, this is a music post. Just setting the scene here.
Michael Carrick has missed something like two of Manchester United’s last 50-something Premier League games. He sits in midfield and performs, consistently, while bright flashes like Tom Cleverley and Jack Wilshere are lauded by everyone with an opinion on English football.
Wow, this post has been sitting in my drafts a long time. I was thinking about it quite a few weeks ago, and thought I’d jot it down, sad guy that I am.
I think about the bands Dave Grohl has been in, Nirvana and the Foo Fighters, and even though I do know a few people who love the guy he just doesn’t feel like a superstar.
When he was in Nirvana he was the drummer who took second stage to Kurt Cobain, he also looked about twelve and didn’t really make much of an impression until just after Kobain’s ‘suicide’.
In the early years of the Foos they were coming up with the rest of the alt-rock movement. When that was over they turned themselves into one of the biggest stadium bands on tour. But still they weren’t and aren’t up there with the likes of The Who and Gun N Roses and the rest of the rock royals.
Grohl and Carrick are both among the best in the business at what they do, yet seem to be overlooked by a lot of people for missing that little something that makes others stand out over them.
Just a thought I had, comparisons can be made in my opinion.
