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


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.

The band had a series of dates planned for May, July and August, as well as an additional leg that was to have started in September.

Oliver Taylor Hawkins was only 50 at the time of his death. He passed away at a hotel in Bogotá, Colombia ahead of a show the band were due to play at that night.

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

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!")
