Who Will Be Foo Fighters Next Drummer

Foo Fighters will kick the year off with a bang, they will be performing at Boston Calling Music Festival Friday May 26th!

Plus they've announced several festival dates for later this year. But who will be playing drums?

Variety ran down a few possible candidates to fill in for the late Taylor Hawkins - starting with the list of drummers who took part in last year's Hawkins tribute shows.

  • Veteran drummer Josh Freese - who's played with acts like Guns N' Roses, A Perfect Circle, and Nine Inch Nails - is seen as the frontrunner.
  • Rufus Taylor, drummer for The Darkness and son of Queen's Roger Taylor, is another possibility.
  • Other candidates include Taylor's son Shane Hawkins or 12-year-old drum prodigy Nandi Bushnell.  Or the Foos could recruit a celebrity like Travis Barker, Stewart Copeland, or even Metallica's Lars Ulrich. 
  • And let's not forget that frontman Dave Grohl is a legendary drummer in his own right! Though it might be hard to sing and play the drums haha.

I wonder who will be on the drums for this performance? Shane again?

Who would you recommend the group get to join the band on the drums now?
