Foo Fighters legends Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins recently made their return to the Howard Stern Show on Tuesday morning. They joined Howard and co-host Robin Quivers ahead of the Foo Fighters’ new supernatural horror flick “Studio 666.”
Hawkins would like to see Soundgarden join the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2022. During the conversation, Hawkins recalled their Rock Hall acceptance speech. Hawkins notably supported the acts of Jane’s Addiction and Soundgarden getting in, and wants George Michael to one day be inducted alongside Foo Fighters.
Taylor Hawkins reflects on the matter
He went on to explain his thought process to Howard Tuesday morning, stating that the first two bands came onto the scene during a delicate time in rock ‘n’ roll history when he wasn’t sure if the genre would ever get great again.
“As soon as you heard Jane’s Addiction and as soon as you heard Soundgarden it was like … there’s rock on the horizon,” Taylor said, adding, “And then George Michael, I just think that guy has got the best voice of all time.”
Hawkins went on to say he thought King Crimson should join the Rock Hall’s esteemed ranks. This had led to him and Howard vocalizing together on an effects-heavy rendition of “In the Court of the Crimson King.” “That was really good, Howard,” Taylor said after they finished. “I want one of those effects pedals.” “Talk about horror films, what the f**k was that?” Grohl added with a laugh.
It was recently noted that Foo Fighters will perform with Stone Temple Pilots at Beale Street Music Festival. Top bands like Smashing Pumpkins, Stone Temple Pilots, and Weezer are on the lineup. Beale Street Music Festival had released the first round of artists back in December. Lil Wayne, Da Baby, Counting Crows, Death Cab For Cutie, Spoon will also be joining them. The music festival will run from April 29 to May 1.
