Foo Fighters announce they will continue

The Foo Fighters announced that they will continue as a band but they still didn’t reveal who will be their new drummer. Their classic and beloved drummer Taylor Hawkins died last March, 2022 at the age of 50 hours before a concert of the band in Bogotá, Colombia. The group paid tribute to the late musicians with two historical concerts made in London and Los Angeles, that featured many legendary artists like Paul McCartney, Brian May, Roger Taylor, Geezer Butler, Brian Johnson and more.


The band was founded by Dave Grohl after the end of Nirvana and besides him the group is formed by Pat Smear (Guitar – since 1995), Chris Shiflett (Guitar – since 1999), Nate Mendel (Bass – since 1995) and Rami Jaffee (Keyboards – since 2005).

Foo Fighters announce they will continue

“Foo Fighters were formed 27 years ago to represent the healing power of music and a continuation of life. And for the past 27 years our fans have built a worldwide community, a devoted support system that has helped us all get through the darkest of times together.”

“A place to share our joy and our pain, our hopes and fears, and to join in a chorus of life together through music. Without Taylor, we never would have become the band that we were — and without Taylor, we know that we’re going to be a different band going forward”.

The band had released 10 studio albums, the most recent one being “Medicine At Midnight” in 2021.

Curiously, the self-titled debut from 1995 was only recorded by Dave Grohl, who did the vocals and played all the instruments. Besides the two mentioned albums, the band also released “The Colour and the Shape” (1997), “There Is Nothing Left to Lose” (1999), “One by One” (2002), “In Your Honor” (2005), “Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace” (2007), “Wasting Light” (2011), “Sonic Highways” (2014) and “Concrete and Gold” (2017).

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
