Josh Freese Unveiled as the New Live Drummer for Foo Fighters

Foo Fighters introduced Josh Freese as their new live drummer during a special streaming event titled "Foo Fighters: Preparing Music For Concerts." The band showcased their fresh touring lineup, marking a significant change for the group.
Before revealing Freese as their newest member, Foo Fighters teased fans with a humorous skit that featured appearances from Chad Smith of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Danny Carey of Tool, and Tommy Lee from Mötley Crüe. However, it was Freese who emerged as the chosen replacement for the late Taylor Hawkins, the band's longtime drummer, who tragically passed away in March 2022 at the age of 50 in Bogotá, Colombia. 

Foo Fighters' latest album, titled "But Here We Are," is dedicated to the memory of Hawkins.
Freese's appointment as the new live drummer for Foo Fighters is a natural choice, given his remarkable drumming skills and impressive career. As a true "drummer's drummer," Freese has an unparalleled resume, having played with notable bands and artists such as Vandals, Devo, Nine Inch Nails, and Sting. His versatility was showcased during Coachella 2022, where he performed with both 100 gecs and Danny Elfman on the same day, demonstrating his ability to adapt to various musical styles.

Freese's connection with Foo Fighters began last year when he participated in the band's tribute shows honoring Hawkins. During those memorable performances, Freese joined the group on drums for renditions of their beloved tracks, including "Times Like These" and "All My Life."

  Foo Fighters fans are eagerly anticipating the band's upcoming concerts, where they will witness the talents of their new live drummer, Josh Freese. With his impressive pedigree and previous collaborations with the group, it is expected that Freese will seamlessly integrate into the Foo Fighters' lineup, bringing a fresh energy and contributing to their dynamic live performances.

The Foo Fighters' decision to select Freese is a testament to his exceptional drumming abilities and his deep musical understanding. As the band embarks on this new chapter, fans around the world eagerly anticipate the future endeavors of Foo Fighters and the contributions of their newest member, Josh Freese.
