Foo Fighters’ well-known drummer, Taylor Hawkins was the latest interview guest of Louder Sound, and he revealed an untold story of how did he reject Guns N’ Roses’ invitation to join the band.
As you might read Taylor’s statements below, he shared how ‘someone’ from the Guns’ N Roses management tried to reach him to make an offer.
Here is that rare story:
“Axl was trying to get together a new version of Guns N’ Roses, and I think he was checking around for people. They wanted to know if I would come in and try out or whatever. It was kind of otherworldly.
I called Roger Taylor for advice. He said, ‘Mate, let me tell you a story…’
I see you and Dave onstage and there’s something you can’t buy there. There’s something between you guys that might not be there with Axl Rose.’
And he was right. For all our trials and tribulations, Dave is like a brother. When we walk out on stage, every time we nod and look at each other and go, ‘Alright, here we go.’ We’re getting in the ring together.”
