The first thing I remember hearing about Foo Fighters was “the lead singer used to play drums on Nirvana”, and I thought that it was going to be a flop! Then I watched Everlong Music Video and I completely regretted saying that! At some point I even tried to convince my wife for string quarter at our wedding to play Everlong. Never happened!
A lot of people have a love-hate relationship with Foo Fighters, but you can’t deny the level of energy between Dave Grohl’s guitar and voice and Taylor Hawkins’ drumming: it must been tough for him to fill the shoes of Nirvana’s drummer!
Rest in Peace, Taylor!
