Dave Grohl Wants To Drum in Led Zeppelin Master Forum Posted January 6, 2008 I am a huge Dave Grohl fan, however, if he does keep banging on about wanting to play drums for Zeppelin, I'm gonna get pissed off with him real soon. Jason is THE ONLY man worthy of playing with Zeppelin. If we are going to go out and look further afield for a drummer, Grohl would not be at the top of my list. Carmine Appice (who was a big influence on John Bonham) would be top IMO, with Mike Portnoy coming a close second (listen to his Zeppelin tribute "Hammer Of The Gods") - he REALLY re-creates that Bonham sound. Although it's probably only the media anyway, but if not, shut up Grohl - Taylor Hawkins owns you on drums anyway!!
