We take a moment to revisit the cutest guy in rock – aka the legendary Dave Grohl – and his best moments behind the drums of Nirvana. After being challenged by 10-year-old Nandi Bushell to a drum-off, we thought we brought you one of the reasons she challenged him in the first place, as we listen to Grohl’s lonely drums on Nirvana’s’ In bloom’.
The second track from Nirvana’s iconic album no matter seems the perfect piece to show us all the expert precision and power of the world’s finest percussionist, Dave Grohl. Although he can always have a smile on his face, he has thunder in his sticks.
While Grohl has continued to be a part of some of the best rock bands of recent times, QOTSA and Foo Fighters to name just two, most people have held a special place in their hearts for the drummer and singer ever since. that Grohl made a name for himself with Nirvana. . The youngest member of the group, Grohl often provided a welcome chorus of disengaged Kurt Cobain and somewhat antagonistic Krist Novoselic.
Joining the band at the start of their meteoric rise to the top, Grohl had a rather unenviable task when he became a drummer in 1990. With much of no matter already written, Grohl should take the drums from previous drummer, Chad Channing, and add his own touch with aplomb. It’s not better seen than on the group no matter track, ‘In Bloom’.
The arrangements for ‘In Bloom’ and the other songs previously recorded with producer Butcher Vig in 1990 were largely unchanged but, under instruction, began to be re-recorded. This meant that recently hired drummer Dave Grohl mostly stuck with his predecessor’s models, but he added so much more to the song’s last place in the hearts and minds of Nirvana fans.
The song was, for all intents and purposes, Nirvana providing the growing set of fans who started showing up at their previously uncrowded shows with a grunge track doused in sweet pop and a heavy dose of sarcasm.
Like a chewable vitamin, it was all the nutrients you needed, but with a pallet-friendly coating to override the kids.
Bassist Novoselic recalled that it “originally sounded like a Bad Brains song. Then Kurt turned it into a pop song ”. Not much of this would have been possible without Grohl’s drums, as the percussionist keeps a tight line while delivering a heavy dose of pounding rhythm wherever possible.
Grohl brings a whole new level of precision and power to the case and pushes the song to the upper echelons of the trio’s work. It’s a track that even inspired the youngest of drummers like nine-year-old Nandi Bushell, which we picked up last year for his very passionate rendition of the song Nirvana.
For now, sit back and enjoy some of Dave Grohl’s best work.
