The 11-year-old son of Taylor Hawkings, the Foo Fighters drummers, has also shown talent. He played drums alongside father, Dave Grohl and Mötley Crüe at a charity event.


Oliver Shane Hawkings performed with his father and cover band Chevy Metal. The song featured was a version of “The Miss You” by The Rolling Stones.

Dave Grohl also played the song and many others, such as Rolling Stones’ “Bitch”, Thin Lizzy’s “Jailbreak” and Black Sabbath’s “The Wizard”.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
