One of the most consistently impressive things about the Foo Fighters is the dedication each member has to side projects. Not content to merely ride the wave of being part of one of the most successful rock and roll bands ever assembled, each guy has his own passion project that fills up just about all “time off” from the “main job.”
Drummer Taylor Hawkins is no exception, and on Nov. 8 he will release Get the Money, another album under the Taylor Hawkins and the Coattail Riders name. This will be the third album from this project, and the first since 2010’s Red Light Fever. Hawkins also released a solo EP in 2016 and an album with yet another side band, The Birds of Satan, in 2014.

Here’s “Cross the Line” as a preview of Get the Money — a track featuring guest spots from Hawkins’ pal, Dave Grohl, as well as Yes’ Jon Davison.
Some more details about this record, which sounds like a rock and roll party:
Produced by John Lousteau and Taylor himself, and mixed by Sylvia Massy, Get The Money follows Taylor’s 2016 six-song mini-LP KOTA by three years almost to the day, and features a scope far wider than KOTA’s takes on suburbia’s bizarro underbelly. The new album finds Taylor and Coattail Riders Chris Chaney, Brent Woods and John Lousteau accompanied by an all-star supporting cast including Taylor’s fellow Foo Fighters Dave Grohl and Pat Smear, Roger Taylor, Joe Walsh, Duff McKagan, Nancy Wilson, Chrissie Hynde, Perry Farrell, LeAnn Rimes and more, collectively creating a staggering, epic sprawl that swerves from classic rock to prog and glam and all points between.
Sounds fun, huh?
