Last Monday, Rolling Stone published an article that is very misleading where they use Matt Cameron and Chad Smith’s quotes about Taylor Hawkins’ alleged quotes. They specifically insinuate that Dave Grohl possibly denied Hawkins to rest from the grueling tour that the Foo Fighters were going through.
As of to say that Dave was somehow responsible for the late drummer’s high levels of stress and mental health issues. After the article was published, most of the rock world personalities felt this was a click batey article where the two drummers’ names are dragged through the mud. Well, the Pearl Jam drummer had a lot to say about this.
On his Instagram page, Matt Cameron basically stated he might never trust Rolling Stone with any interviews: “When I agreed to take part in the Rolling Stone article about Taylor, I assumed it would be a celebration of his life and work. My quotes were taken out of context and shaped into a narrative I never intended.
“Taylor was a dear friend, and a next level artist. I miss him. I have only the deepest love and respect for Taylor, Dave and the Foo Fighters families. I am truly sorry to have taken part in this interview and I apologize that my participation may have caused harm to those for whom I have only the deepest respect and admiration.”
What about Chad?
As far as the Red Hot Chilli Peppers’ drummer is concerned, Chad Smith has been dedicating tributes to Hawkins since hisuntimely death. The band recently received a star in the Hollywood walk of fame and he mentioned Taylor in his speech. As far as we know, there still hasn’t been a response from him through any of his social media profiles but he will likely say something about it.
That article leaves both drummers in a very bad place with the rest of the Foo Fighters and they never intended to make it look that way. This is completely Rolling Stone’s fault, so much so that they decided to publish a tribut to Hawkins just a few hours ago.
