Taylor Hawkins talks The Birds of Satan and Rush in new interview
Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins was recently interviewed by Canoe to discuss his new side project The Birds of Satan and their self-titled EP which released a few weeks ago. The band's prog-meets-hard-rock sound was inspired by the likes of Queen, Aerosmith and Rush. When asked about what makes him such a huge Rush fan here's what Hawkins had to say:
I love all of them. (Bassist) Geddy Lee, he's a bad motherf-er. He comes off as this kind of quiet guy. Oh, my God, you get into a corner with that guy, he is so funny and he's a smartass and he's a bad ass. He's a motherf-er, one of the funniest goofiest guys in the world, he really is, and obviously a brilliant bass player, and they're just a great f-ing true rock and roll band and I love them. I've always loved them. And I owe them so much. And obviously you will hear a lot of Rush on my record. It comes right out of the gate kind of like a Rush album.
