Various estimates place the legendary drummer’s market value between between $40 million and $57 million. Taylor Hawkins is most known for his work with Alanis Morissette, Foo Fighters, and Coattail Riders, but he also has a lucrative solo career.
On February 17, 1972 in Fort Worth, Texas, a boy named Oliver Taylor Hawkins was born to a family of musicians. 1976 was the year that he and his family made the move to Laguna Beach, California. Jason and Heather Hawkins are Hawkins’ two younger siblings. To put it another way, he went to Laguna Beach High School. While growing up, he was influenced by Stewart Copeland and Roger Taylor of Queen, as well as Jane’s Addiction and Janet Jackson of Janet Jackson.
The current Genesis vocalist, Jon Davison, was a boyhood buddy of Hawkins’. Yes. After playing in a number of bands together since they were kids, the Heavy Industry tribute band was the most notable one they’d ever been in. Both high school dances and wedding receptions featured the band. Following their performances in Heavy Industry in high school, Hawkins and Davison’s careers diverged. Many of Hawkins’ bands sought to sound like Jane’s Addiction, as he described it. Sylvia was his first band, but he departed to join Sass Jordan as a drummer. After that, he went on tour with Alanis Morissette, abandoning Sass Jordan in his wake.
Alanis Morissette Career:
On the “Can’t Not” tour in 1995 and 1996, Hawkins was the drummer for Canadian singer Alanis Morissette. The videos for “You Oughta Know,” “All I Truly Want,” and “You Learn” all featured him. A terrible phone call from Dave Grohl broke the heart of Hawkins after 18 months of dating Alanis Morissette.
The Color and the Shape, the second album by the Foo Fighters, was recorded in 1996. They had a disagreement throughout the recording process of the album. Having heard Goldsmith’s drum sounds, Grohl decided to re-record the album with Grohl on the drums instead. Thus, Goldsmith was compelled to leave the band for personal reasons. Taylor Hawkins was contacted by Dave Grohl seeking advice on a drummer. Grohl had no clue Hawkins would leave Alanis Morissette’s tour to join the Foo Fighters at the time. Grohl was surprised by Hawkins’ excitement for the job. On March 18, 1997, Taylor Hawkins joined Foo Fighters.
With The Foo Fighters I’ve had a long and Successful Career:
Alanis Morissette predicted Hawkins’ future move, hilariously While on tour in support of her critically acclaimed debut album, Jagged Little Pill, they ran into the Foo Fighters. After the meeting, she told Hawkins, “Dave is going to invite you to join them at some time.” After a year, Grohl phoned Hawkins again.
As a new band in 1997, the Foo Fighters performed in clubs and opened for more renowned artists like the Red Hot Chili Peppers. At Wembley Stadium for two nights in 2008, Foo Fighters sold out an estimated 86,000 fans each night, making them one of the most successful rock bands of all time.
Hawkins is also a rock vocalist. In addition, he plays the guitar and the piano. “Have a Cigar,” from Pink Floyd, was his first solo effort with the Foo Fighters. “Cold Day in the Sun” from the album In Your Honor has him on lead vocals; it was written just for him. In 2017, he delivered lead vocals on the Foo Fighters’ “Sunday Rain” from Concrete and Gold as part of his most recent work. At least one Foo Fighters cover song is sung by Hawkins throughout every live performance of the band. He also has a hand in writing the band’s songs. Only Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins have sang lead vocals for the Foo Fighters.
It was in 2006 when Taylor Hawkins and the Coattail Riders released their self-titled album. Roger Taylor of Queen and Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers were part of the SOS Allstars that performed at Live Earth in 2007.
In 2005, Hawkins married Alison, the love of his life.
Oliver, Annabelle, and Everleigh were all born as a result of this relationship.. In 2012, they moved from Topanga Canyon, California, to Hidden Hills.
In August 2001, Hawkins overdosed on heroin and went into a two-week coma.
I used to go out a lot, Hawkins told Beats 1 broadcaster Matt Wilkinson about the event in 2018. Partying was my vice, but I was not a typical junkie. The drinking got a little out of hand one year. “What the heck happened?” I awakened one night after this man gave me an improper statement with an inaccurate object. That was a pivotal moment in my life.”
