Foo Fighters address Glastonbury rumours
Rock band Foo Fighters have spoken out about the speculation that suggests they might land a spot on the Glastonbury bill next summer.
The band's drummer, Taylor Hawkins, chatted to the NME about the rumours and confessed that he is usually kept out of the loop because he has a tendency to say things he shouldn't before official announcements are made:
"Not yet man but I’m always the last to know. I have a big mouth so they don’t tell me anything. That’s a rule in Foo Fighters; ‘don’t tell Taylor, he’ll tell everybody.'"
He spoke about being forced to axe UK shows in 2015 after frontman Dave Grohl broke his leg and admitted they're keen to return for some gigs: “It was a bummer when we had to pull out the other year. It was a bummer all round. I mean, Dave almost pulverised his entire fucking leg – and missing Glastonbury was part of that bummer."
“We were excited to get out there and do our march through Wembley then Glastonbury headlining. We were set to pop, we were set to go and then Dave broke his leg like that it was a kick in the fucking nuts. But like Dave said, ‘we will go on, even if I have to sit in this throne I have in my mind’. We were all like ‘that’s crazy – it’s crazy to think anyone’s going to want to see you sitting in a throne’, and we did, and they were some of the best shows we ever played.”
