Foo Fighters guitarist Chris Shiflett hopes the band will make another album

Foo Fighters guitarist Chris Shiflett hopes the band will make another album.

The band’s future was uncertain following the death of drummer Taylor Hawkins in March. The Foo Fighters canceled all of their scheduled concerts after the loss and have avoided discussing plans beyond a few Hawkins tribute concerts.

However, in a new interview, guitarist Chris Shiflett has said that he hopes there will be a new album from the band at some point.

On The Plug With Justin Jay, Shiflett (who recently released singles ‘Born & Raised’ and ‘Long, Long Year’) was asked if other interviewers had brought up Hawkins’ death or if he was “a elephant in the room”.

“Most of the people I’ve come across are respectful of the subject or have tried to avoid it,” Shiflett said. “It probably will [algo más] when we get another record of Foo Fighters and return to boogie woogie promotion.

“I remember when I joined the Foo Fighters, it was in 1999, so it was a while after Kurt Cobain’s death, but I would see the interviewers scrambling to ask Dave. [Grohl] about it, but don’t ask. I thought it would turn into something like this.”

He said that “people have a lot of respect, but it made me rethink everything I thought I knew about the death of Jim Morrison, or Randy Rhoads or any of those rock & roll tragedies.”

“Taylor was a great character and meant a lot to millions of people, so I understand that interest in him [su muerte]but a lot of what I’ve seen is completely wrong,” Shiflett said.

“People are out there saying shit like Dave Taylor killed trying to get him on the COVID shot. Are you going to turn him into that? Fuck you. I try to ignore it, but it makes me mad you because shit is just disrespectful.” “.

Tonight the second Taylor Hawkins tribute concert will take place in Los Angeles, in which Alanis Morissette and Miley Cyrus will perform alongside members of Queen and Red Hot Chili Peppers, Krist Novoselic of Nirvana, ex-Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones, Pink and Nandi Bushell.

The Los Angeles concert will be broadcast live worldwide on the Paramount streaming service in the United States and MTV’s YouTube channel worldwide. More information here.

It follows on from a Wembley Stadium tribute concert earlier this month which featured a star-studded line-up including Liam Gallagher, Mark Ronson, Josh Homme and AC/DC’s Brian Johnson. Read NME’s cover story on how the night unfolded here.
