A belated happy birthday to Taylor Hawkins, born on February 17 1972, and best known as the drummer of the Foo Fighters. Before the Foo Fighters, Hawkins was the touring drummer for Alanis Morissette, and he’s also put in time as the drummer for the progressive experimental band Sylvia, as well as his own side project, Taylor Hawkins And The Coattail Riders.

Celebrate Hawkins’ beastly style (and dig that set-up!) with the following videos, including the above, which comes from a live concert in West Palm Beach, Florida in 2018.
