Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters talks about what he once thought was the end of the band and Liam Gallagher

Foo Fighters seem really tight as friends in the band, so it would hard to see them ever breaking up.  However, Taylor recently revealed a time in 2001 when he thought was the end of the band.

According to NME, Taylor said it was around the time in in 2001 when he was in coma for two weeks after overdosing on heroin.  Taylor says he was partying heavily around this time and said:

“Thank God on some level this guy gave me the wrong line with the wrong thing one night and I woke up going, ‘What the fuck happened?’ That was a real changing point for me.”

Soon after that was when Dave Grohl started playing with Queens Of The Stone Age and even though they tried making “One By One” around then, he said “it looked like the end.”

NME also reports that Taylor would like to play drums and write a song for Liam Gallagher.  Taylor called him “a character” but was never invited by Gallagher to collaborate yet.

The Foo Fighters had played shows with Liam and Dave Grohl also said nice things about him in the past when he was asked if he liked Liam or Noel better.  He didn’t want to pick sides, but raved about Liam.  He also said he loves reading Noel interviews, even when he talked shit about the Foo Fighters.

In other news, Dave talked about who his favorite is out of all the bands that opened for them in the past.  They have had great openers such as Cage The Elephant, Social Distortion, Death Cab For Cutie, and Biffy Clyro to name some.  However, Dave said his favorite is their current opener The Struts.  This is what he said about them according to Nova:

‘I guess they don’t get a lot of love in England, but in America, they’re the best opening band we’ve ever had’.

‘That kid Luke, the singer, it’s unbelievable. He’ll walk out in front of an audience in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where nobody has ever heard of them and by the end of the show he’ll have the entire audience in the palm of his hand. I love seeing that. To see an audience turn like that is not easy.’
