I spoke with Dale two years ago and he is now endorsed to Paiste. He said Zildjian quit sending him cymbals because he breaks 2 or 3 per tour. Dale's ride is a 24" 2002, 15" hit-hat, and his crash is either 20" or 22"....plus a huge china, ice bell, 2 ribbon crashers, cow bell, a medium size crash set cymbal and of course a gong.

      btw...Foo Fighters song "My Hero" is about Dale Crover. Dave Grohl, like many others, is inspired by Dale and used to talkup Dale and the Melvins in articles back during the Nirvana hey dayz. Plus the drum beat on "My Hero" is very similar the drums on the song "Night Goat" by the Melvins.

      Go Melvins!

        Dale Crover is so cool that he used to play in an "Iron Maiden" cover band before starting the Melvins.

            i heard it from no one. it's something i figured out on my own. ok, i guess it an opinion. but i'm a huge Nirvana fan and big admirer of Grohl's drumming. go back and read old Nirvana interviews. Dave has said many times that Dale Crover inspired him like none other. That Dale Crover made Dave look at music/drumming in a different light. Dale Crover inspired Dave bigtime. plus the drumming on My Hero is very, very similar to the Melvins tune Night Goat. i don't think it's a rip off...just a tribute. Dale doesn't act like a big rock star and if you ever talk with him he is very ordinary...except he's the best ****************ing drummer ever! dale is very friendly and approachable. i doubt if Dave will ever admit the song is about Dale....especially since the Melvins camp dogged Grohl for making mainstream music. something about how Dave was financial secure after Nirvana and could have easily taken some risks and created something way more challenging that Top 40 pop songs.

            that's my story and i'm sticking with it.

            Go see Dale and the Melvins on tour now!

            Dale Grohl is going on tour as the drummer for Queens of the Stone Age! i can't wait!

            two drummers worth seeing. don't miss it....yo!

                    I saw the Melvins on Tuesday night. Dale was in UNBELIEVABLE form and their new material "Hostile Ambient Takeover" comes off very well live. They've mixed in quite a few up-tempo rockers into their set. In fact out of the 3 times I've seen the Melvins, this was by far their best performance. That 26" kick is ri****************************diculous! He also had what looked like a home-made cymbal....A china with a smaller crash cymbal resting on top of it. Sounded very fast and trashy.

                      warpedig,

                      you saw them tuesday night in austin? i was at that show, too!

                      STELLAR show. first time i've seen them and i'm never missing them again!

                      i think the cymbal you're talking about (if facing him, the cymbal on the left over the gong bass drum) MIGHT be the Paiste trash-set (I think that's what it's called).. a cymbal w/ a smaller cymbal on top.

                          I just got back from seeing the Melvins in New Orleans, Tallahassee, and Orlando. AWESOME SHOW. Anyone know what that cover they played for the first encore was?

                          Finally got pics with the band. Great guys.

                            "Youth Of America" by The Wipers. Melvins recorded that song for the Electroretard CD.
