Pearl Jam’s Matt Cameron and Red Hot Chilli Peppers’ Chad Smith apologise for Taylor Hawkins comments about his final months
Friends of late Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins have said comments they made about the star’s final months were ‘taken out of context’. Hawkins died at the age of 50 in March when the Foo Fighters were on tour in Colombia. His bandmates Dave Grohl, Pat Smear, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Rami Jaffee have since cancelled the remaining tour dates in order to grieve privately out of the spotlight. However, an article was published this week detailing the final months of Hawkins’ life, featuring quotes from friends such as Pearl Jam’s Matt Cameron and Red Hot Chilli Peppers’ Chad Smith. It was claimed that Hawkins was tired of touring and that the Foo Fighters may have split after the latest concerts. Cameron – who was a close friend of Hawkins and worked with him on the late musician’s project Nighttime Boogie Association – reportedly told Rolling Stone: ‘He had a heart-to-heart with Dave and, yeah, he told me that he “couldn’t f*****g do it anymore” — those were his words.’ A rep for Foo Fighters denied that Hawkins ever raised these issues, telling the publication: ‘No, there was never a “heart-to-heart” — or any sort of meeting on this topic — with Dave and [Silva Artist Management].’ Smith reportedly recalled an incident in December 2021 where Hawkins allegedly lost consciousness on a plane in Chicago. ‘He just said he was exhausted and collapsed, and they had to pump him full of IVs and stuff.

Members of Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden form new band 3rd Secret, drop surprise album
Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic, Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil and Pearl Jam/Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron – have formed a new supergroup called 3rd Secret, and, without having announced it beforehand, dropped their debut album yesterday (April 11).A self-titled affair, the 11-track effort sports a broad tonal palette – it leans heavily on classic grunge and alt-rock flavours, but adds diversity with hints of laidback folk and indie-rock, swampy blues and stomping hard-rock. Tracks like ‘Dead Sea’ and ‘Winter Solstice’ make impressive use of twangy, melancholy acoustics, while the use of an accordion on ‘Right Stuff’ adds a unique sense of theatricality. ‘Diamond In The Cold’, on the other hand, is a crunchy, mosh-primed rock anthem, with songs like ‘I Choose Me’ and ‘Lies Fade Away’ embracing the epochal ‘90s grunge sound that 3rd Secret’s members built their legacies on.Have a listen to the full album below:Alongside Novoselic, Thayil and Cameron, 3rd Secret is rounded out by guitarist Jon ‘Bubba’ Dupree (best known for his work in ‘80s hardcore outfit Void, as well as the alt-metal supergroup Hater, which also featured Cameron) and singers Jillian Raye (who Novoselic also plays with as part of Giants In The Trees) and Jennifer Johnson. Recording for the album was split between three sessions, all of which featured involvement from longtime Nirvana and Soundgarden collaborator Jack Endino.
