"All music must have vocals! If it ain't rock, it ain't right!"

That's kind of all I heard..

Although I agree with him on
learning to play an instrument and learning to do your craft, that's the most important thing for people to do.

It's just that he fails to realize that hardware and software synthesizers and DAWs are instruments in their own right. And considerably more complex than his guitar or drum set.

It's not about being perfect, it's not about sounding absolutely correct, it's not about what goes on in a computer. It's about what goes on in here [your heart] and what goes on in here [your head].


And you could say the exact same thing about playing guitar or drums. That sentiment would be exactly the same if I said "It's not about being perfect, it's not about sounding absolutely correct, it's not about what goes on in your guitar. It's about what goes on in here [your heart] and what goes on in here [your head]."

i think yall missed the point.  he was refering to studio magic that bands use to make their music sound better as opposed to him recording his album in his garage.  i dont think he was slighting edm at all.  more slighting bands that rely too much on making everything on there album sound studio perfect.

Dave Grohl on any instrument is pretty much as accurate as any piece of hardware.  He's basically saying everyone is a bitch.  Considering he's dave Grohl, I'll ride with that.

It's clearly not RE: EDM, from my reading of what he said.

LA Weekly seems to have some of the dumbest writers out there.

Ha, I like how Grohl made a totally logical clarification, and the writer still took it the wrong way.  What a dolt.
