Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins was the recent guest of the SiriusXM and revealed a never-told-before Queen story about Bohemian Rhapsody.


“You serve as a vehicle for younger generations of rock music fans. You realize when you’re doing Chevy Metal, you’re paying homage by covering the music that you grew up listening, you are now introducing them to those bands…”

Taylor Hawkins:

“I think, in a way, that’s what was so great about that Queen movie this year [‘Bohemian Rhapsody’]. I mean, whether you think it was the greatest movie in the world ornot, all I know is: I took my two older kids to go see it.

“First, I asked my friends in Queen; I said, ‘Hey, is there, like, a bunch of crazy sex and coke and shit like that?’. They were, like, ‘No.’ I said, ‘So I can bring my 11-year-old to go see it?’, and they’re, like, ‘Absolutely.’

“You know what I think was really nice? It introduced kids to music. … You know who my son is totally infatuated with now? Nirvana.”
