Foo Fighters Member Is Borrowing Innovative Idea From Dave Grohl


Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins discussed his new solo project in a recent Entertainment Weekly interview.

“I like to put a little signpost in the road in between every Foo Fighters project,” Hawkins tells EW. “I don’t know why, I just have to do it. I have to get that itch to write songs out of my system.”

He also revealed that he borrowed Dave Grohl’s Sonic Highways concept for his project.

“I’ve written so many songs that mean a lot of different things, but that don’t really mean anything,” he reflects. But, to an extent, watching Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl draw on regional personas for the songs on Sonic Highways sparked a similar urge in Hawkins: “You can really write a song about anything, if you try hard enough.”
