AUDIO: Foo Fighters’ Taylor Hawkins Teams With Joe Walsh, Duff McKagan, and Chrissie Hynde on ‘Get the Money’
Song hails from Taylor Hawkins & the Coattail Riders’ new album of the same nameOctober 21, 2019
Taylor Hawkins and his band the Coattail Riders have released a new song from their star-studded November album.
Hawkins, who doubles as the drummer for Foo Fighters, enlisted the help of a trio of legends: the Pretenders’ Chrissie Hynde, solo artist and Eagles great Joe Walsh, and Guns N’ Roses rocker Duff McKagan on the LP’s title track, “Get the Money.” The tune sees Hawkins and Hynde going back and forth on the lyrics while Stern Show veterans Walsh and McKagan lend their hands on guitar and bass, respectively.
It’s the third album for Taylor Hawkins & the Coattail Riders, which also includes Chris Chaney, John Lousteau, and Brent Woods. The band announced the new effort last week while sharing another of its tunes, “Crossed the Line,” featuring Jon Davison of Yes and Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl.
Other big-name collaborators appearing on “Get the Money” include Heart’s Nancy Wilson, LeAnn Rimes, Queen’s Roger Taylor, and Hawkins and Grohl’s Foo Fighters bandmate Pat Smear.
Taylor has joined the show multiple times over the years alongside Grohl and Foo Fighters. In 1999, he watched on with Howard as Dave delivered a memorable acoustic rendition of “My Hero” live on the air. Check out a video of that performance (below).
