    What do you define as “modern instruments”? Computers? If yes then yes.

    I'm a musician. I play guitar and keyboards. These days when I compose a song I have two choices:

    1. Create my song by playing musical instruments along with other musicians (or if I'm Dave Grohl play all the instruments myself).

    or

    2. Embace technology and draw the entire song all by myself on a computer screen.

    I've done both and I've been happy with the results in both cases. And either way the song ends up in a computer. Both methods have their pros and cons.

    But guess which way is a hell of a lot more fun?

    Little bit of singing and soloing and it'd be perfect. Gonna go for vinyl anyway

    I think Dave should play a nose flute out of his ****.

    I love Nirvana (my 2nd favorite group after The Beatles), and I think that Dave is a genuinely good guy. I just don't care for his music. He's a great drummer-and a hard hitting one; he helped take Nirvana to the next level by giving them that extra crunch that they needed. I think that most of his stuff is indistinguishable from each other. It has nothing to do with talent; I mean, he played all of the instruments (aside from one guitar track) on the FF debut album (which I love). It just feels bland to me.

    I like this project and Dave, but i'm starting to wonder if he is gonna become the Phil Collins' of the modern era and will become hated.

    Dave just appears to becoming everybody's darling... similar to the way Phil did in the mid-80's. I would say that 'Play' is that point where Collins' released 'Both Sides' (where PC also played every instrument on the album). Unfortunately that had a big negative effect on Collins' career - he left Genesis, and he didn't have the hits anymore.

    I just hope DG doesn't go down the same route - just because he has done 'play'.

    Overexposure possibly. People just might be tired of seeing him everywhere being asked to pontificate on all things rock. Dave seems like a genuinely nice guy, but anyone can wear out their welcome.

    The TCV record has a large amount of Josh Homme’s influence in terms of the writing. If you’re lukewarm on his output, it’s no surprise you didn’t connect with TCV.

    I think it's a good way to see how the first album was recorded. Don't forget, with the exception of one song, he played everything on the first album.
