Foo Fighters Will Continue as "a Different Band" without Taylor Hawkins

hduwekflosidjfjkdjkf

Foo Fighters will continue to make music after the passing of their drummer Taylor Hawkins. But they'll be a, quote, "different band going forward."

In a statement, they said, quote, "As we say goodbye to the most difficult and tragic year that our band has ever known, we are reminded of how thankful we are for the people that we love and cherish most . . .

"And for the loved ones who are no longer with us. Without Taylor, we never would have become the band that we were . . . we know that when we see you again, and we will soon, he'll be there in spirit with all of us every night."

Foo Fighters celebrated Hawkins with a pair of tribute concerts held in Los Angeles and London in September. The star-studded shows both ended with the Foos performing with a variety of guest drummers.

ffdgbe
Dave Grohl joined Billie Eilish on stage during her show at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles last Thursday (December 15th) to perform "My Hero" in tribute to late drummer Taylor Hawkins.

"Earlier this year all of the Foo Fighters and our families gathered together at my house to watch the Grammys, and when Billie came out for her performance in a Taylor Hawkins t-shirt, the room was filled with real tears of love and gratitude. So, from our families who aren't here tonight, and the Hawkins family and everyone, we'd like to thank you very much. So let's sing it for Taylor." - Dave Grohl

Joe Walsh, multi-GRAMMY Award winning musician and Kennedy Center Honor recipient and VetsAid, his national 501(c)3 non-profit veterans organization, announce the global livestream of their sixth annual festival offering. VetsAid 2022 will feature sets from a newly reunited James Gang (Joe Walsh, Jimmy Fox and Dale Peters) for a final performance, or "One Last Ride," with special guest Dave Grohl as well as from Nine Inch Nails, The Black Keys and The Breeders. The show will be hosted for the third time by Cleveland native Drew Carey and will stream live at 6pm Eastern on Sunday, November 13, 2022, from Nationwide Arena in Columbus, OH. VetsAid has partnered once again with Veeps to facilitate the livestream as they have for the past two iterations of the online festival; however, this will be the first live arena concert streaming offering. The livestream will be available for restream for 48 hours following the live performance. 

"The arena show sold so fast that we just had to find a way to share the James Gang reunion and this historic night of Ohio rock and roll with more fans across America and the world," Walsh shares. "We at VetsAid learned how to livestream over the past two years so I'm proud to partner again with Veeps to bring this show directly to fans whether it's in their living rooms, in their local VFW halls or even just watching on their mobile phones so that we can raise even more money for Ohio vets and their families. And, thanks to our new partnerships with Fandiem and Bandsintown, one lucky donor will even win an all-expenses trip to Columbus to come to the show as my special guest and even grab a cup of joe with Joe! That's me!"

Livestream passes priced at $19.99 and limited edition merch bundles are available now at vetsaid.veeps.com. All net proceeds will go directly to veterans services groups with ties to Ohio. 

VetsAid is also partnering with digital fundraising platform Fandiem and live music discovery platform Bandsintown to inspire fans to give back and 'Be Joe Walsh's Guest at VetsAid2022.' Fans can Donate To Win online via fandiem.com/vetsaid for a chance at an all-expenses paid trip to VetsAid 2022 in Columbus, which will include: round trip airfare and lodging, two seats in the Friends and Family section and VIP access to the Friends and Family Lounge, dinner for two, and a coffee date with Joe Walsh the day before the show. 

Fans participating in the livestream can also donate directly to VetsAid from their screens during the broadcast and one lucky donor will be selected to receive a guitar signed by all the performing artists. 

As every year, all net proceeds from the concert will go directly to the veterans' services charities selected through a vetting process coordinated in tandem with the Combined Arms Institute. To date, VetsAid has disbursed $2,000,000 in grants. In 2022 VetsAid plans to disburse grants exclusively to organizations based in Ohio or with operations on the ground in Ohio; grant applications are open now via the VetsAid website at vetsaid.org/grants

Now in its sixth year, VetsAid hosted its inaugural show on September 20, 2017 with a concert at the EagleBank Arena in Fairfax, VA featuring performances by Walsh, Zac Brown Band, Keith Urban and Gary Clark Jr. In 2018, VetsAid traveled to Tacoma, WA with a sell-out event featuring Walsh, Don Henley, James Taylor, Chris Stapleton, Haim and special guest Ringo Starr. In 2019, Houston, TX welcomed VetsAid for a blockbuster show with Walsh, ZZ Top, The Doobie Brothers, Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit, Sheryl Crow and Brad Paisley. The pandemic moved the festival online in 2020 and 2021 with intimate performances from Eddie Vedder, James Hetfield, Gwen Stefani and nearly 40 other artists from across the United States as well as the debut of new music from Walsh in his studio available via livestream. 

Veterans and their wellbeing have always been important to Walsh, a Gold Star son himself. His father was a flight instructor for the first US operational jet powered aircraft, the Lockheed F-80 Shooting Star, and died while stationed and on active duty on Okinawa when Walsh was 20 months old. Walsh aims to use this platform to raise funds and awareness for the still urgent and significant needs of our returning soldiers and their families. Through the establishment of VetsAid and this annual benefit concert, he aims to give back to those who have given so much in sacrifice for this country.

Dave Grohl is a huge fan of "Hot Ones", finally gets on the show and "Has a lil' Spit Up" Hilarious!

edipjxdckldzfokogtdfs
One of theeee most requested guests that they've ever had to enter the ring of fire on YouTube's 'Hot Ones' finally appears on latest episode, that's 5 years in the making! As a huge fan of 'Hot Ones', this is a Bucket List item for Dave "Let's Do A Shot" Grohl, that he can now check off! FIRST WE FEAST, I think not...He even brought dranks' Pantera style....Black Tooth Grin to Begin! 

One of the most entertaining shows out there, 'Hot Ones' Host Sean Evans asks celebrity guests a variety of questions as they attempt to eat hot wings that increase in heat as they go and that "Last Dab'll Do ya..IN"!

Dave is a bit of a BBQ expert in his own right and seemed to handle the heat level as he shared stories about being a UFO Nerd and how The Foo's got their name, bong hits, the upcoming Foo Fighters movie Studio 666 (out 2/25), his collection of injuries from performing onstage and so much more! The best 30 minutes of entertainment EVER! 

Grohl, who is a Grammy Winner, Author, Actor (and somewhat of a Comedian), revealed that he's a huge 'Hot Ones' fan, and compared the experience of appearing on the series to playing Saturday Night Live and David Letterman's show, saying "For years, I've watched Hot Ones, and I finally walked onto this set and saw those sauces and saw your face, I was, like, 'Yes! Bucket list, bam! The only thing I have left to do in my life is jam with AC/DC." 

WATCH HERE...ALL THE WAY TO THE VERY END! HILARIOUS! ("Sometimes my Burps Get more applause then Our Songs", "Let's Do A Shot!", "The Key To A Good Rub", "Come ON Let's Do ANOTHER SHOT!", "Wing Chaser", "Dude Yer' dRuNk!")
