More Talented: Dave Grohl vs Corey Taylor

I figure that Grohl will win this due to his musicianship, however songwriting has to goto Taylor hands down and I really do think he is the better singer. Grohl can scream like nobody else, but Taylor has the ability to convey emotion in his songs which gives him a far more impressive range.

A quick google search reveals him to be the lead singer of Slipknot. As such, Dave Grohl wins by default.

more talented is easyily grohl. he is a pure natural musician. i know most people here know i love dave grohl but i love him so much becuase he is so great.

songwriting is probably taylor but dave grohl is easily more talented. he is a world class drummer and the guitarist/song writer of a huge band currently.

hes played bass, drums, guitar, and sang on many albums and made several albums by himself. if you ask who is more talented it has to be grohl. i think alot of people will vote taylor because they dont like nirvana foo fighters queens of the stone age or whatever but dave grohl is one of the most talented musicians out there

Taylor is also the frontman for Stone Sour.

This pretty much sums up why I think Grohl will win. Grohl has a level of musicianship only rivalled by Noel Gallagher, which is a huge boost. I personally put more stock into songwriting, but Grohl's ability to play pretty much any instrument is a good reason to choose him.

In terms of musicianship Trent Reznor would enter the convesation. Like Dave, Trent is also Mr. Everything in putting songs together.

I see my hopes of a mature conversation were too ambitious. So many people who have never heard of Taylor are simply voting for Grohl because Taylor fronts Slipknot. There are many reasons to vote for Grohl, but voting for Grohl because he wasn't in slipknot is not one of them. I personally hate Slipknot, however Taylor's work in that band, and in Stone Sour specifically, is mor eimpressive than Grohl. This may be because I put a large emphasis on vocal range and songwriting, as opposed to musicianship, but at least I have provided a reason. One could argue that Grohl's superiority when it comes to musicianship is enough to overcome Taylor's advanatges in the other areas.

i think a good voice is more of somethin you are born with but while yes being musically talented is also a natural trait, i think it takes more talent to be great at many instruments than it is to just have to write lyrics and sing. dave does both anyway. daves voice i think even as a huge fan is his only blemish musically. i dont think its bad and over the yeats has become much more raspier but he doesnt have a distinct voice. he is a great singer as far as being able to scream and not crack his voice or whatever but his voice isnt very disticnt or a natural singers voice. ive always put more emphasis on the music anyway and the voice just being another intrument

FOTS, if you want a mature debate pick mature musicians to talk about not people that run around in masks.

Corey Taylor is a mature musician. You obviously know very little about him. Since nobody here really seems to know anything about Taylor other than he is the frontman of Slipknot, let me post some of his other contributions.

Grohl's versatility as a musican easily wins this poll for me. I know who Taylor is and I even appreciate his work but its really not even close.

I like Corey Taylor, but Grohl can play guitar, bass, and drums and is also a very adept singer. Grohl wins this for me for sure.

The drums on In Utero and Songs For The Deaf, the first two Foo Fighters albums, and Probot.

Grohl is more talented, but I prefer Corey Taylor's music.

More "talented" I go with Grohl mainly because you could clone him, send a clone out to fulfill each roll of the band and you would have a great everything.

Grohl will win due to the lack of people knowing who Corey is.
