(Prog) Taylor Hawkins of the Foo Fighters says he wouldn't dare to try replacing Neil Peart in Rush - no matter how much he'd like to saying that fans of the legendary band would not stand for it.

Hawkins is a longtime fan of the Canadian prog icons. He helped induct them into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2013 and appears alongside bandmate Dave Grohl on the upcoming 40th anniversary edition of classic Rush album 2112.

The band's future remains in doubt after Peart lost enthusiasm for continuing to work with them. He hasn't confirmed his status - but frontman Geddy Lee said last week that he'd begun to accept the idea that their touring days were over.

Asked about the prospect of replacing Peart, Hawkins tells SiriusXM: "I'd get f***ing crucified, man. You know how many dorks would want to kick my ass if I tried to be in Rush? It would be like a nation of dorks chasing me and trying to kill me: 'You're not Neil Peart - don't even think about it!'" Read more here.
