Dave Grohl vs. Animal from the Muppets! DRUM OFF!

It’s a battle nearly 30 years in the making..  There have been some amazing drummers that have come across the airwaves in my time.  Lars Ulrich, Travis Barker, Josh Freese, and of course Dave Grohl.  But there’s a name that many people leave off the list of the amazing drummers in our time, and that would be the beast ripping it up for Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem on the Muppet Show.

Of course, I’m talking about ANIMAL

LOS ANGELES - MAR 11:  Fozzie, Walter, Animal at the "Muppets Most Wanted" - Los Angeles Premiere at the El Capitan Theater on March 11, 2014 in Los Angeles, CA

ANIMAL with Walter and Scooter!


Animal was the ORIGINAL crazy drummer.  I mean, for Hell sake, back in the 70’s they had to CHAIN him to his kit!  Did you see them doing that shit to Ringo back in the day?  I don’t think so!

So when Dave Grohl threw down the gauntlet and challenged Animal to a drum off, I can only imagine he was legitimately terrified when that challenge was accepted..

The results?  Well I’ll just come out and say it.  The results were amazing.  See below!
