Taylor Hawkins Net Worth 2022:

The legendary Foo Fighters drummer was worth an estimated $40 to 57 million, according to data compiled from several sources. The majority of Taylor Hawkins’ money comes from his collaborations with Canadian-American singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette, Foo Fighters, and other projects, such as Coattail Riders.

Early Life:

Oliver Taylor Hawkins was born in Fort Worth, Texas, on February 17, 1972. In 1976, he and his family migrated to Laguna Beach, California. Jason and Heather Hawkins are Hawkins’ two siblings. He was a graduate of Laguna Beach High School. Stewart Copeland of the Police impacted him as a youth, and he was a huge fan of Queen’s Roger Taylor and Jane’s Addiction.

Hawkins was a boyhood buddy of Jon Davison, the current singer for prog giants Yes. They’d known each other since they were kids and had been in various bands together, the greatest of which being the Heavy Industry cover band. The band performed at high school dances as well as at a wedding. After performing in Heavy Industry in high school, Hawkins and Davison’s paths diverged. Hawkins was a member of a lot of awful bands that “tried to sound like Jane’s Addiction,” as he put it. He joined the experimental band Sylvia but departed to join Sass Jordan as their drummer. He then went on tour with Alanis Morissette, leaving Sass Jordan behind.

Alanis Morissette’s Career

In 1995 and 1996, Hawkins was the drummer for Canadian musician Alanis Morissette on her “Can’t Not” tour. He starred in Morissette’s music videos for “You Oughta Know,” “All I Really Want,” and “You Learn,” among others. Hawkins spent 18 months with Alanis Morissette before receiving a tragic phone call from Dave Grohl.

Foo Fighters went into the studio in 1996 to create their second album, The Color, and the Shape. During the making of the album, Dave Grohl and then-drummer William Goldsmith got into an argument. Grohl fully re-recorded the album with Grohl on drums after hearing Goldsmith’s drum sounds. As a result, Goldsmith left the band. Grohl contacted Taylor Hawkins to ask for a drummer recommendation. Alanis Morissette was the biggest rock star at the time, and Grohl had no idea Hawkins would abandon her tour to join Foo Fighters. Hawkins expressed interest in the task, much to Grohl’s astonishment. On March 18, 1997, Taylor Hawkins joined Foo Fighters for the first time.

With The Foo Fighters, I’ve had a long and fruitful career:

Alanis Morissette, ironically (see what we did there?) foresaw Hawkins’ next action. They met the Foo Fighters while on tour in support of her massive hit album Jagged Little Pill. “Dave is going to ask you to join them someday,” she informed Hawkins afterward. Grohl didn’t call Hawkins until a year later.

The Foo Fighters were still relatively unknown in early 1997, playing club shows or opening for bigger, more established bands such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Fast forward 23 years and the Foo Fighters are one of the most popular rock bands, having sold-out Wembley Stadium in London for two nights in 2008, playing to an estimated 86,000 fans each night.

Hawkins also performs as a rock singer. He is also a guitarist and pianist. A cover of Pink Floyd’s “Have a Cigar” was his first solo vocal with the Foo Fighters. From In Your Honor, he provided lead vocals on the original song “Cold Day in the Sun.” He most recently provided lead vocals on the Foo Fighters’ 2017 album Concrete and Gold’s “Sunday Rain.” Hawkins sings lead vocals on at least one cover song throughout many Foo Fighters live gigs. He also contributes to the band’s songwriting. Only Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins have sang lead vocals for the Foo Fighters.

Hawkins’ side project, Taylor Hawkins and the Coattail Riders released a self-titled album in 2006. Hawkins was a member of the SOS Allstars at Live Earth in 2007, alongside Roger Taylor of Queen and Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Personal life:

Hawkins and Alison, his wife, married in 2005.

Oliver, Annabelle, and Everleigh are the children of this union. After moving from Topanga Canyon in 2012, they settled in Hidden Hills, California.

Hawkins overdosed on heroin in August 2001 and spent two weeks in a coma.

Hawkins stated of the incident to Beats 1 host Matt Wilkinson in 2018: “I used to go out a lot. I wasn’t an addict in the traditional sense, but I was a party animal. There was a year when the drinking became a touch too much. Thankfully, this guy gave me the wrong line with the wrong thing one night, and I awoke wondering, “What the heck happened?” That was a pivotal moment in my life.”

Jon Davison, the current Yes lead vocalist, was a boyhood buddy of his.
