Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins and his band The Coattail Riders will release their third studio album, titled Get The Money, on November 8th. The band has shared a preview track called “Crossed The Line” that features guest appearances from Foos mastermind Dave Grohl and Yes vocalist Jon Davison.
In addition to Grohl and Davison, guests on the LP include Foos guitarist Pat Smear, Queen drummer Roger Taylor, the Eagles' Joe Walsh, Duff McKagan of Guns N' Roses, Nancy Wilson from Heart, the Pretenders' Chrissie Hynde, Perry Farrell, LeAnn Rimes and more.
Hawkins told us a while ago that working on other projects helps keep him in playing shape when Foo Fighters are not busy: “I'm not really the kind of guy that sits around like, 'I'm gonna go play drums by myself for two hours.' I just don't. Not interested in that. I've always only ever played in bands and with other people. And yes, I do think it keeps my ears fresh and my hands in shape and it keeps me in shape so I can go do the crazy three-hour Foo Fighters shows.”
In addition to the Coattail Riders, Hawkins has also released one album from a group called the Birds Of Satan and also issued a mini-LP in 2016 called KOTA on which he sang lead vocals and played nearly every instrument.
Foo Fighters themselves are reportedly in the early stages of work on a new album, the band's 10th, although details remain scarce.
