The Foo Fighters continue to claw their way back from the grief that surrounded Taylor Hawkins’ death almost a year ago. While about half a dozen festival dates have been booked, there’s still no word on who will play drums.
One thing the Foos can do is make an album with the personnel they have because the boss is rumoured to be a pretty good drummer. Which begs this question: Could the Foos have quietly recorded a new album over the last few months?
It could happen. Dave is a workaholic. I can seem him working through his grief by diving into music. The Foos have their own state-of-the-art recording studio (I’ve been there) so they can record whenever they want in complete secrecy. And then there’s this from a British DJ this week.
Chris Moyles works at Radio X in London. After playing the Foos’ “Walk,” he said this: “I love that song so much – Foo Fighters, and ‘Walk.’ They’ve got a new album coming out in, er, March, Foo Fighters… which I’m very much looking forward to.”
Then, perhaps realizing that he just said something he wasn’t supposed to, he quickly switched subjects. Hear for yourself.
Hmm. Interesting. This could be (a) a new studio album or (b) live recordings from the two Taylor Hawkins’ tribute shows from last September. Might either be released on the first anniversary of his death? Or is that a big ham-handed?
We’ll see, I guess.
