The Foo Fighters add more live dates. But who will be the drummer?

The Foo Fighters are going back on the road this year with the first gig (we think) scheduled for May 24 in Gilford, New Hampshire, making it the first full show without Tayor Hawkins. That will be followed by a string of dates throughout the summer.

Still no word on who will be being the drums, though, although I do have some suspicions. But who knows?

  • We all have our suspicions of who we think is gonna sit back there but that’s all we got I honestly don’t have a clue. Taylor is the only one ever. No one like him ever ever . Having said that I don’t know any drummers that have the third of energy and charisma to turn heads to see who the drummer is instead of watching the band play. That’s wat Taylor did i remember the first time I seen him play live I spend 2hrs of the show focus on him and the band got maybe 20 minutes of me watching them but when I heard Taylor back there my head just turned towards curiosity of who that hell is that monster back there playing like someone else wanted his seat 😂😂😂 god I can spend an entire life talking abt Taylor but that’s another episode stay tuned 😂😂😂

  • Could be Dave Grohl? After all, he’s a drummer too. Time will tell. I’m just so thankful the Foo’s didn’t retire after Taylor passed. It won’t be the same, but the show must go one. I truly believe Taylor would want that. Rock on Foo Fighters. 🤘

  • My guess is Josh Freese or Rufus Taylor who is Roger Taylor from Queen son .

    • We all know no one can replace Taylor! Simply someone will be stepping in for Taylor! 😉❤️😉
