When Benjamin Franklin reportedly said, many moons ago, that “if you want something done, ask a busy person,” he could easily have been referring to Taylor Hawkins.
The Foo Fighter and his bandmates will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame during a ceremony Oct. 30. But first, the rockers are out on the road, smashing out more than a quarter century of hits.
With all that going on, Hawkins couldn’t help but be part of a new triumvirate with Jane’s Addiction’s Dave Navarro and Chris Chaney.
The new “supergroup” goes by the name of NHC (that’s N for Navarro; H for Hawkins; and C for Chaney), with Hawkins taking duties for lead vocals and drums, Navarro wielding the axe and Chaney playing bass.
NHC, reads a statement, is the result of “pure, unharnessed creativity and the world’s biggest Mutual Appreciation Society,” guys who’ve been in each other’s orbit in the Los Angeles rock scene for longer than any of them can recall.
The trio announce themselves to the music world with the release of two tracks, the speed-thrills “Feed The Cruel” and the laid-back “Better Move On.”
They’ll play the songs, and others, when they make their live debut at this year’s Ohana Festival, to be held Oct. 2 in Dana Point, CA.
