Default Who is more of a control freak? Billy or Dave Grohl

Billy or Dave? I hear Dave Grohl plays all the demo parts himself before the band even starts to work on the song.

Bill obviously

But Dave handled the whole Will Goldsmith thing pretty shitty iirc

but i mean why wouldn't he record all the demo parts, since he has the capability and wants to get the idea down asap

Billy is probably harder to deal with. But at least back in the day the band was the band. While the Foo Fighters always seemed more like Dave's employees.

so? do you honestly think The Smashing Pumpkins have fared better than Foo Fighters in the long run? not talking musically, just as an actual, healthy operation. Billy probably envies the fuck out of Dave Grohl, Trent Reznor, etc's situation & wishes he'd never given the pretense of Pumpkins being an "actual band"

For every song on every album? Definitely not leaving much room for collaboration.

it all depends on how he handles it after the demo stage, tbh

if he goes in demanding everyone involved plays the parts verbatim, you may have a case - but somehow i doubt that

No doubt Foo Fighters have been healthier and somehow managed to gain an unbelievable fanbase

but I would say SP was an actual band despite their many dysfunctions.
