Taylor Hawkins Aimed For Raw Sound With The Birds Of Satan

(Classic Rock) Taylor Hawkins says he wasn't trying to make the perfect record with The Birds Of Satan - insisting it was all about having fun. The Foo Fighters drummer, who sings in three-piece The Birds Of Satan, admits he isn't the best singer and that nobody is likely to get rich on the back of the new project's self-titled debut album.

But he clearly enjoyed making it and says he has been pleasantly surprised by some of the reviews it has gathered. He also jokes that the album is "toilet paper".

Hawkins tells Music Feeds: "We weren't going for perfection, we were going for excitement. I didn't trip out about making some masterpiece, I just wanted to have fun. Some of the records that I love were recorded fairly quickly. Van Halen 1 was recorded in a week, Zeppelin's first record was like four days or something and Black Sabbath's first record was recorded in two days. I've already done a lot of big productions and I wanted to see what it felt like just totally being raw." more on this story
