Grohl has shared his love of AC/DC in the past, telling Forbes that his “dream person” to play drums for was “AC/DC. That’s my last one, that’s it. Phil Rudd is back, though. If you dive back into their back catalog, that early shit, there was a little bit more dynamic, then they settled into the groove. That’s the thing. And it’s because of Phil Rudd. It’s AC/DC, but that guy holds the key.”
