That's Enough Already, Dave Grohl
Lately, Grohl seems to be fixated on sucking at the teat of Paul McCartney. But if you're going to cling like a baby rhesus monkey to somebody, it might as well be the only living Beatle. (Shut up; nobody counts Ringo.) Still, Grohl seems to have been a barnacle on Sir Paul's nards ever since they got together to make a Sound City song. They've played together many times since then and just a few days ago, Grohl performed "Hey Bulldog" in that Grammys tribute to the Beatles. (Shit, Grohl could even pass for George Harrison at this point.)
Despite his many ass-kissing obligations, Grohl always seems to find a way to give back, too. His counterprotests of Westboro Baptist Church, participation in charity/awareness events and the small ways that he always seems to try to give back to fans do not go entirely unnoticed -- but sometimes it's hard to see these beautiful little gestures through the absolute blizzard of Grohl appearances.
So is Dave Grohl good? Yeah, he's fucking great. And if he is our new cultural king, then we should welcome him -- we could do much worse. But right now he's like the ex that won't stop texting you. You feel smothered. You wanna be like, "Dude, if you would just get up out of my business, like, ever, I would like you so much more." So go away, Dave Grohl. But don't stay gone forever, just enough to make us miss you. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, and we'll be ready to love you again later, but for right now you just need to get up out of my face for a while, OK?
