Taylor Hawkins’ son Shane once again honoured his late father as Foo Fighters embark on their summer tour.
On Friday, the 17-year-old joined the band onstage to perform their 1995 hit I’ll Stick Around during the band’s headlining performance at the Boston Calling music festival.
Midway through the 20-song set, Foo Fighters welcomed Violet Grohl to sit in on “Shame Shame”, which included a snippet of Van Halen’s “Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love”, and “Rope”. Dave Grohl then dedicated a heartfelt solo rendition of “Cold Day in the Sun” to Taylor’s family and Taylor before introducing Shane Hawkins. The young Hawkins sat in on drums during “I’ll Stick Around”.
“He just said, ‘Say something. I gotta fix the snare,’” Grohl said laughingly as the young Hawkins took the stage. After stalling for a minute, Grohl introduced the song, saying, “This is an old song from our first record.” He was unable to finish the introduction, though, as he was cut off by the eager drummer, who launched into the song with intense energy reminiscent of his father’s playing.
This was not the first time Shane has sat in with the Foo Fighters. He previously played “My Hero” with the band at the Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concerts.
