Five Drummers Who Switched to Guitar

1. Dave Grohl (Nirvana/Foo Fighters)
2. Keith Strickland (B-52’s)
3. J. Mascis (Dinosaur Jr.)
4. Patrick Wilson (Weezer)
5. Don Henley (Eagles)

(I’m thinking of people who started out principally behind the drum kit and then moved up front with a guitar, not somebody like Lenny Kravitz, who’s been a multinstrumentalist pretty much from day one. Who else qualifies?)
