Taylor Hawkins Says He’ll Be “Last to Know” If Foo Fighters Are Playing Glastonbury

FilmMagic/FilmMagicRumors have been circulating about Foo Fighters headlining the 2017 version of England’s legendary Glastonbury festival, but drummer Taylor Hawkins says he’s not the one to ask.

Hawkins tells NME, “I’m always the last to know. I have a big mouth so they don’t tell me anything. That’s a rule in Foo Fighters; ‘don’t tell Taylor, he’ll tell everybody.’”

The Foos were forced to cancel their scheduled appearance at Glastonbury 2015, as well as shows at London’s Wembley Stadium, after frontman Dave Grohl broke his leg. Hawkins recalls, “It was a bummer when we had to pull out the other year…We were set to go and then Dave broke his leg like that it was a kick in the f****** nuts.”

The band did manage to eventually get back on the road, with Grohl performing while seated on a specially designed throne. Hawkins explains, “They were some of the best shows we ever played…The last thing Dave ever wants is to cancel a show, but we made lemonade. We got lemons and made lemonade.”

Glastonbury 2017 will take place June 21 through 25.

The Foo Fighters, along with Radiohead, Linkin Park, Arcade Fire, System of a Down and Blink 182 are already confirmed to appear at the Rock Werchter festival, set for June 29 through July 1 in Werchter, Belgium.

As previously reported, Hawkins recently issued a six-song solo album titled KOTA.
