Watch 11-year-old son of Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins perform with his dad and Dave Grohl

Violet Grohl isn't the only Foos kid with musical talent

The 11-year-old son of Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins joined his dad and Dave Grohl for a special live performance this weekend.

Oliver Shane Hawkins made an appearance with his father’s “70s dirt rock cover band” Chevy Metal at a benefit for the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank on Saturday (December 22). He performed on one song – a version of The Rolling Stones’ ‘Miss You’.

Grohl also performed on that cover as well as several others, including The Rolling Stones’ ‘Bitch’, Thin Lizzy’s ‘Jailbreak’, and Black Sabbath’s ‘The Wizard’. You can watch fan-shot footage of the performance below.


Chevy Metal were joined by a host of other guests for the charity gig, including Lisa Loeb and Motley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx. You can see the full setlist below.

Oliver Shane Hawkins isn’t the first Foo Fighters kid to show off their musical talent. Grohl’s daughter Violet has performed with her dad at a handful of galas and charity shows, as well as touring with the Foos as a backing singer this summer.

Most recently, Grohl and Violet covered Adele’s ‘When We Were Young’ and Billie Eilish‘s ‘idontwannabeyouanymore’ at Beverly Hills’ ‘Autism Speaks: Into The Blue’ event.

Meanwhile, Grohl confirmed earlier this year that the band would be “taking a break” after their recent tour but added he already had an idea of what shape their next album would take. “When we start making records it’s almost like I don’t hear the song as much as I can see them, in my head,” he said. “So I don’t read music, I see music in kind of shapes and patterns, so I can see the next record, I know that there is another one there, I don’t know when but I think I know what we should do.”
