Actress and comedian Kathy Griffin has shared a funny new photo of Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins kissing her.
She wrote on Instagram, “Last night, Taylor Hawkins couldn’t stop talking about my bangin’ bikini bod! I had to Foo Fight him off! Kathy Hawkins? Taylor Griffin?”
Taylor Hawkins opened up about his past struggles with drug abuse in a recent interview with Beats 1’s Matt Wilkinson, saying his overdose in 2001 almost ended the band.
Hawkins detailed that he overdosed on heroin while the band were in London in 2001, leaving him in a coma for two weeks.
“Well, I was partying a lot. I wasn’t like a junkie per se, but I was partying. There was a year where the partying just got a little too heavy.”
“Thank God on some level this guy gave me the wrong line with the wrong thing one night and I woke up going, ‘What the fuck happened?’ That was a real changing point for me.”
In the Foo Fighters documentary Back and Forth, Dave Grohl discussed being at Hawkins’ bedside while he was in the coma. Hawkins fortunately recovered and got clean, and Foo Fighters regrouped to release One By One in 2002, featuring the classic hits “All My Life” and “Times Like These”.
