Foo Fighters get new drummer a year after Taylor Hawkins’ death

Foo Fighters have said a new drummer will be joining them for their upcoming tour dates.
During their Foo Fighters: Preparing Music for Concerts livestream, reports that the band broke the news that Josh Freese would be filling in as their new drummer.
It’s fair to say Freese has a lot of experience under his belt, having worked as a drummer for several decades, touring with the likes of Guns N’ Roses, Nine Inch Nails and Devo.
The outlet however adds that it is not yet known whether Freese will be permanently joining the group or if he is just filling in for their upcoming tour dates.
This comes just over a year after former Foo Fighters drummer,
Taylor Hawkins sadly passed away
at the age of 50 while the group was on tour in Colombia.
Hawkins first joined the band in 1997 and remained with until his death in March 2022.
His passing came as a huge shock to fans and a pair of star-studded tribute concert took place at Wembley Stadium in London in September last year to remember the late drummer.
During these shows, both Freese and Hawkins’ son, Oliver Shand, appeared onstage to perform.
