Dave Grohl Reveals His Favourite David Bowie Album
Dave Grohl has revealed that his favorite David Bowie album is … drum roll, please: Let’s Dance. As reported by NME.com, the Foo Fighters frontman told BBC6 Music the 1983 Bowie album is especially conducive to “air drumming.”
“People will think I’m crazy for this, as there are a lot of Bowie eras and they’re all great, but I really like the Let’s Dance period,” Grohl said. “Because, as a drummer, that’s one of the best air drumming albums of all time.”
Grohl later added: “I can appreciate technical drumming, sure. But to me there’s nothing better than being in a bar full of people dancing and air drumming when none of them know how to play the drums. [Let’s Dance] and Back In Black — anyone will air drum to those albums.”
Let’s Dance remains Bowie’ most commercially successful album. The LP is notable for helping launch the career of Stevie Ray Vaughan, who played guitar on several tracks.
