Rufus Taylor, son of Queen drummer Roger Taylor and present drummer for The Darkness, may doubtlessly be behind the package for Foo Fighters on their upcoming tour.
In an in interview with BBC Radio 2, Roger Taylor was requested if Rufus may very well be becoming a member of the band on tour. Roger did not give a straight reply and famous that he “cannot say any extra” earlier than stopping speaking.
“Properly, Rufus is phenomenal. He is became this scary, nice drummer with The Darkness,” stated Roger as transcribed by Planet Radio. “I watched them the opposite day at Wembley Enviornment. Phenomenal. Completely phenomenal band, nice band stay. I really like The Darkness. My son, he is simply annoyingly highly effective and he is turn into very, excellent. I am unable to say any extra!”
When requested once more if Rufus may very well be becoming a member of Foo Fighters, Roger stated: “Properly, he does play brilliantly with them. He is aware of all their stuff, is aware of all of them very effectively. He did play ‘Better of You’ with the Foos, and it was phenomenal at Wembley, and at The Discussion board in LA. What precisely is going on now, I do not know.”
There are two details to know right here – one is that Rufus carried out with Foo Fighters for his or her Hawkins tribute present at Wembley final 12 months (and times before that), and two is that Rufus is Taylor Hawkins‘ godson. So his connection to the band is already there.
Foo Fighters didn’t supply any touch upon their present lineup both on social media or within the press launch for his or her upcoming document However Right here We Are, so it isn’t even clear who drummed within the studio.
