Writtn by sidhanta

Recognizable for his flailing limbs, surfer’s good looks and wide, childlike grin, Mr. Hawkins became a member of the band led by Dave Grohl for its third album,

“There Is Nothing Left to Lose,” released in 1999, and played on the group’s subsequent seven albums.

He drew on two distinct styles: the fundamentals of Roger Taylor from Queen and the intricacy of Stewart Copeland from the Police. 

 He added the muscle of punk and metal, the precision of drum machines and a gift for explosive momentum.

Foo Fighters’ most recent album, “Medicine at Midnight,” arrived last year as the group was celebrating its 25th anniversary, 

 Mr. Hawkins was direct about his hopes for its future. “I want to be the biggest band in the world,” he said.

Mr. Hawkins was born in Fort Worth on Feb. 17, 1972, and raised in Southern California. He started to play drums at age 10, and said that his mother gave him the confidence to dream big:
