Supergroups and side projects are certainly no new occurrence in the world of music and such is the case with NHC – the new band from Jane’s Addiction members Dave Navarro and Chris Chaney along with Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins. Together, the trio has announced their debut EP entitled ‘Intakes & Outtakes’ which will feature Hawkins on both vocals and drums, Chaney on bass, and Navarro on guitar.
Will Foo Fighters quit Spotify? In talking about the EP, Navarro proclaimed: “I’m really proud of this collection of songs as they really showcase the range that we like to explore collectively.” Chaney added: “This is a great batch of songs that covers an amalgamation of our combined styles and influences.”
The group has performed once before – performing during Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder’s Ohana Festival last year which took place September 24-26, 2021 at Doheny State Beach in Dana Point, CA. The group performed a seven-song setlist at the event including a cover of Red Hot Chili Peppers’ 1995 hit ‘My Friends’
In further news concerning the Foo Fighters, frontman Dave Grohl, during an interview with NPR discussed what led him to transition from drummer to singer after the death of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain. Credit to Express for the below quote.
“Honestly, after Nirvana ended, I was asked to join a few other bands as the drummer. And I didn’t really want to just sit back down on the drum stool because I thought it would remind me too much of losing Kurt and losing Nirvana. So, it’s almost like, you know, if you stare at the sun, you wind up blinding this little sunspot in your vision. I almost thought of it like that perspective from the drum set. I will always have that sunspot right there in front of me, just to the right. Like, that will be there forever.”
