Entertainment Taylor Hawkins: 'Foo Fighters debut blew me away'
JAY-Z, Foo Fighters, Tina Turner and The Go-Go's Nominated for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
This year's nominees is a female-heavy list of 16 acts.Artists are eligible for a nomination 25 years after the release of their first official recording. There are two newly eligible acts in JAY-Z and Foo Fighters while artists nominated for the first time include Blige, The Go-Go's, Iron Maiden, Warwick and Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti.
Taylor Hawkins jumped at the chance to become the drummer in the Foo Fighters after hearing the band's impressive debut album.
Dave Grohl released his post-Nirvana album in 1995 and Hawkins, who was performing with Alanis Morissette at the time, was "blown to smithereens" by the record, so when he got the chance to join the group two years later, he didn't hesitate.
Hosting a Medicine At Midnight Radio session on Apple Music Hits, the rocker says, "I just couldn’t believe how perfect it was. It was Dave's voice. Obviously, his drumming was great and his guitar playing was awesome, and the songs were fun and energetic and funny without being jokey and fun without being light.

I’m going to f**king do my thing'. Everyone that heard that first Foo Fighters record, if you are a rock fan, just went, 'Oh yeah, this guy’s got a second act'. And I was lucky enough to jump on that second act."
