Speaking in an interview with Fuse, Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins explained his thoughts about music world and undiscovered musicians. He said:
“I think there’s good stuff out there, but you really have to go hunt for it.
When I was in high school, Guns N’ Roses were the biggest band in the world, and the biggest thing on the radio. Obviously that’s not the kind of thing that’s happening right now.
I always like to think that there’s a Kurt Cobain somewhere in his parents’ basement, hating his parents, hating the world, getting ready to rewrite rock and roll with a guitar, bass, and a drum set. Because I love rock and roll, and I like the feel, I know we both do, and our band in general, we like a human feel to music. I feel, no pun intended, that’s kind of missing a lot.
It just so happens right now that hip hop and sort of throwaway pop music, I call it throwaway pop music, my kids wouldn’t, but I do.
It just happens to be at the top of the charts for the most part, except for a couple of weeks ago when we had a number one record.”
