See also

We all love Dave Grohl, some of us more than others, but we also love Taylor Hawkins. Hawkins, who Grohl calls with much affection, "The Hawk," is not just the drummer of the almighty Foo Fighters, but he is an all around musician and collaborator, who has formed a few side projects of his own.

In 2004 Hawkins put together the band, Taylor Hawkins and the Coattail Riders, where he played drums and sang. Hawkins also performed in a three-piece cover band, Chevy Metal, that played the more obscure songs from ZZ Top, Aerosmith, Deep Purple, Van Halen, Queen, and Black Sabbath.

As we await the next Foo Fighters album we can enjoy some music from Taylor's latest project, The Birds of Satan. Taylor is a free spirit and it shines through in his music; his voice sends a vibe of good old fashion rock 'n' roll. Special guest artists include Foo Fighters and Nirvana guitarist Pat Smear, Keyboard player Rami Jaffee, and of course his pal, Dave Grohl.

You can stream the self-titled debut album here, a highlight is track 4, "Raspberries," a beautiful and simple melody with light chimes and drums and Hawkins' soft vocals, it rocks out a bit, but is anchored by the ballad.
