From single-handedly saving modern rock music’s integrity by making sure we all never rely on technology too much with his movie Sound City, to giving one of the most motivational speeches of all time at last year’s SXSW, The Grohl’s work speaks for itself.

Quite simply, there isn’t another musician alive today who’s made more of an impact on the rock n’ roll landscape since the turn of the century. Even those who aren’t fans of his music know who Dave Grohl is; he’s literally been everywhere and done everything.

Multiple GRAMMYs, numerous outstanding collaborations and a shedload of classic albums already in his back catalogue, the guy’s done it all. Sure, he may have started out as ‘that drummer from Nirvana’, but boy has Dave come a long way since joining the band way back in 1990.

Still not convinced he’s simply the best? Well here are ten reasons why you should probably change your mind.

 

10. He’s A Guinness World Record Holder

Sure, Dave’s sold millions of records but so have hundreds of other artists. When it comes down to the nitty-gritty, those massive achievements that set musicians apart from one another, how many can count themselves as Guinness World Record Holders?

Yep, you’ve guessed it, Dave’s got one of those on his CV too. The good folk of Warren, Ohio decided to carve two 900 pound drumsticks to honour their hometown hero, which just so happened to break the Guinness World Record.

And if that wasn’t enough, the citizens of Warren also decided to name an alley after the maestro himself, so if you ever fancy a trip to Ohio, make sure you pay Dave Grohl Alley a visit.
