Here’s an artist that has been in the business for a long time and, until recently, has re-entered the scene with a groundbreaking album, inspired deeply by a diary that he wrote while caught in the world of drugs, sex and rock ‘n’ roll. I highly recommend everyone to check out his new album coming in stores this August 28th. This is some good stuff! Interested to see where he, along with DJ Ashba and James Michael go from here.

6 years ago today Foo Fighters cancel the remaining three dates of their U.K. and European tour after drummer Taylor Hawkins is hospitalized. Hawkins “apparently overindulged during festivities” following the Foo’s performance at the V2001 Festival in Chelmsford, England, according to a statement.

We’ve been in the studio for the past month and a half, and we’ve got about another month to go. We’ve been recording with our friend Gil Norton. He worked on our second record, he’s a good guy and he makes amazing albums.

So we’re making a really big powerful record, which I’m very excited about and I cannot wait to finish. I’m not saying I’m not having fun., I’m saying I can’t wait to jump on stage and do this stuff, it’s gonna be great.
