Taylor Hawkins is known as an incredible drummer, but he’s also a super talented singer and multi-instrumentalist.
I kind of look forward to the end of each Foo Fighters album/tour cycle because it means Taylor will release a solo album.
The first video below is from his 2010 release with the Coattail Riders, Red Light Fever. It’s a good album featuring some guest spots by the likes of Brian May (Queen) and Elliot Easton (The Cars).
The second song is from 2016’s KOTA. I like Taylor’s voice on this song and the cheesy 80’s inspired look of the video. He doesn’t take himself that seriously apparently, but he clearly takes his music very seriously.
All along, all I’ve really wanted to be is a writer. So now I tell people that’s what I am, even though I haven’t earned a dime being a writer.
That being said, I’ll confess that once a day, every day, I wish I was still a musician. That was the one time in my life when I was cool.
