NOFX’s Fat Mike To Open Punk Rock Museum In Las Vegas, NV

According to Spin. NOFX’s Mike “Fat Mike” Burkett will be opening a 12,000-square-foot Punk Rock Museum in Las Vegas, NV on January 13. The facility will feature items from Debbie Harry, Devo, Rise Against, Sum 41, and more. It will also include various interactive exhibits.

Burkett recruited a 10-person “punk-rock collective” to create this “church of punk rock.” It included musicians and investors such as Pat Smear (Foo Fighters), Brett Gurewitz (Bad Religion), Kevin Lyman, (Vans Warped Tour), and pro-skater Tony Hawk. Burkett said the following:

“If you’re a punk band, you’re fucking in. It’s that simple.”

“We want people to come from Indonesia and see the flier of their band on the wall. You know how proud they would feel? I want anyone in a punk band around the world to have that opportunity.”

Vinnie Fiorello (ex-Less Than Jake) also commented:

“This is a love letter to punk rock. We want to show this common passion amongst so many different people for this form of music.”

Fletcher Dragge (Pennywise) added:

“[Punk] becomes the soundtrack of your life. It’s such a dedicated fanbase and these people are in it for fucking life. When people get into punk rock, they really sink their teeth into it and don’t let go. We wanted to create a place for these people and for people who don’t know much about it.”

Watch Pro-Shot Footage Of Rush Performing “Working Man” With Chad Smith At Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concert In Los Angeles, CA

Rush have shared pro-shot footage of themselves performing “Working Man” with Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith during their September 27 set at the Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters) tribute show in Los Angeles, CA. You can check that out below. The band commented:

“For the first time since August 1st, 2015 we returned to the stage at the LA Forum, scene of the very last performance with our lost brother Neil. This time it was for the second Taylor Hawkins Tribute and sitting behind the throne were 3 wonderful human beings, who also happen to be spectacular drummers.. Dave Grohl, Chad Smith and Danny Carey…. Talk about being spoiled… but the best, yet bittersweet part of this whole deal is that no one would have loved witnessing that more Taylor himself. Rest In Peace Hawk, as we keep Alison, Shane, Annabelle and Everleigh Hawkins along with the entire Foos Family in our thoughts.”

Foo Fighters Guitarist Chris Shiflett Blasts Taylor Hawkins Conspiracy Theorists

During a recent appearance on “The Plug With Justin Jay,” Foo Fighters’ Chris Shiflett opened up about the death of the band’s beloved drummer Taylor Hawkins. The guitarist also took some time to call out various conspiracy theorists who have been making idiotic claims about Hawkins’ death.

Shiflett said the following when asked if the press have been bringing up Hawkins’ death in interviews:

“Most people that I’ve encountered have been respectful about it or try to avoid it. It probably will be [more of a thing] when we ever get around to putting out another Foo Fighters record and go back into the promo boogie woogie.

I remember that when I joined Foo Fighters, it was 1999 so it was a while after Kurt Cobain had died but I would watch interviewers twist themselves in knots trying to ask Dave [Grohl, Foo Fighters vocalist/guitarist] about it but not ask. I would think it would turn into that kinda thing.”

He also added:

“People are pretty respectful but it’s made me reconsider everything I thought I knew about Jim Morrison dying, or Randy Rhoads or any of those rock & roll tragedies. Taylor was this big character and he meant a lot to millions of people so I get that fascination with [his death] but so much of what I’ve seen out there is so completely wrong.

There’s people out there saying shit like Dave killed Taylor by making him get the COVID vaccine. You’re going to turn it into that? Fuck you. I try not to pay attention to it but it does make you angry because that shit is just disrespectful.”

Heart’s Nancy Wilson Pays Tribute To Late Foo Fighters Drummer Taylor Hawkins With New Song “Amigo Amiga”

Heart’s Nancy Wilson has released a new song, titled “Amigo Amiga,” in honor of late Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins. Proceeds from the track will go towards MusiCares. Wilson told Consequence the following:

“I heard myself in tears saying ‘too soon too soon’ which became a refrain in the song. I spent quite a few sleepless nights trying to express it all. He was a wonderful friend and we always had funny pet names for each other like ‘Amigo’ and ‘Amiga’ as well as ‘Luv’ and ‘Dahling’.”

She also added:

“It is such a painful loss — but it also feels like Taylor has galvanized and re-energized rock ‘n’ roll with so many of his musician friends and fans coming together. It’s a new renaissance Taylor and the FOO family have gifted us all.”
