Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl says he’s been practicing playing drums for as long as he can remember; even before he could afford drums. In those days, he often practiced keeping a beat by clanking his teeth together, Grohl says.
While the unusual style of rehearsing appears to have worked out for the ultra-successful Grohl, it didn’t seem to go over well with his dentist, he remembers. “I started doing it when I was a kid,” Grohl says. “I was at the dentist and he’s looking at my teeth. He says, ‘Do you chew a lot of ice?’ And I said, ‘I don’t think so. Why?'”

When the dentist told him he’d noticed a high amount of deterioration, a light bulb went off over Grohl’s head, he recalls. “I’m like, ‘Oh, wait! I can play drums with my teeth!’ I made him put his ear close to my mouth … and then he kicked me out.”
