Mark Ronson on the Taylor Hawkins tribute concert: “I was on the cusp of rocking out and breaking down”
Mark Ronson has paid fresh tribute to Taylor Hawkins, saying that the “beloved” late drummer “should have played on thousands more recordings”.Ronson spoke to NME as part of this week’s special Big Read cover feature, which offers an in-depth and behind-the-scenes look at the recent star-studded Taylor Hawkins tribute concert in London.The producer made a guest appearance at this month’s Wembley Stadium event, teaming up with Dave Grohl‘s daughter Violet for a performance of The Zutons‘ ‘Valerie’ (made famous by Ronson’s 2007 hit cover with Amy Winehouse).Speaking to NME after the show, Ronson explained: “It was Taylor’s day but it felt like the theme of that day was very much about all the other rock ’n’ roll legends that are unfortunately not with us, whether that’s Bowie, Jeff Buckley or Amy.“Without taking the shine away from Taylor, I was just singing about everyone who should still be jamming with us.”He continued: “I knew Taylor a fraction as well as most of the other people performing, but it was amazing to be around all these other people who love Taylor, listening to stories about him, because it felt like spending a little more time with him.“We were texting three days before he passed about cutting some records.

Foo Fighters’ Chris Shiflett shares latest single ‘Born & Raised’
Chris Shiflett has shared his latest solo single ‘Born & Raised’ – you can listen to the track below.The Foo Fighters guitarist recorded the song at the same time as ‘Long, Long Year’, which arrived back in July.While both of the songs were recorded with the producer Vance Powell in Nashville, ‘Born & Raised’ started life in Shiflett’s hometown of Santa Barbara.He later teamed up with bassist Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs, Jack White, Wanda Jackson), drummer Julian Doro (Eagles of Death Metal, The Whigs), keyboardist Mike Webb and steel guitarist Luke Schneider in Nashville to finish ‘Born & Raised’, which you can hear below.“My trip out to Nashville in March 2021 was my first time recording any solo material since I made [2019 solo album] ‘Hard Lessons’,” Shiflett said of the recording.“I hadn’t done much traveling post-COVID lockdown so I was a little nervous heading out there to work with a producer and roomful of musicians I didn’t really know.  In true Nashville style we made our introductions and got right down to work, hammering out the basic tracks in a few hours.“Vance was great and made me feel right at home, and the group of players he put together were on point.”More new music from Shiflett is expected to arrive in the coming months.Shiflett took part in last weekend’s tribute concert for the late Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins, which took place at Wembley Stadium in London.

Brian May and Roger Taylor join Foo Fighters for Queen set at Taylor Hawkins tribute concert
Queen – lead guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor – joined the Foo Fighters to perform a five-song set of their own hits at the first Taylor Hawkins tribute concert.The special gig – which took place at Wembley Stadium last night (September 3) and was simulcast all over the web, TV and streaming platforms – honoured the late Foos drummer with performances from Liam Gallagher, Mark Ronson, Queens Of The Stone Age’s Josh Homme, Supergrass, Metallica’s Lars Ulrich and AC/DC’s Brian Johnson, The Pretenders’ Chrissie Hynde, Blink-182’s Travis Barker, Kesha, and more.The Queen/Foos supergroup were introduced with archival footage of Hawkins himself, who welcomed Roger Taylor out at one of the Foos own shows before he passed. Hawkins was a noted superfan of the British rock icons, and Foos sets would often see the drummer take over from Dave Grohl to perform lead vocals on a cover of ‘Somebody To Love’.“When I was 10 years old, my older sister took me to go see Queen in concert – the first concert I ever saw – and I watched the fucking drummer, and I said, ‘I wanna fucking be him, I wanna do that’,” Hawkins says in the archival clip screened at last night’s concert, after hyping the crowd up with his imitation of Freddie Mercury’s famous “ay-oh” chant.The set itself began with a cover of Queen’s 1977 hit ‘We Will Rock You’, for which Taylor was joined on drums by his son Rufus, and Luke Spiller of The Struts sang lead vocals.
