Taylor Hawkins Would Never Join Rush Because 'I'd Get F**king Crucified'

November 16, 2016

Although Neil Peart will most likely be retiring from playing the drums with Rush at live shows, that doesn't mean that Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson are ready to cash in their chips too. It just means that they two of them would be down a drummer, and they would need someone that would be right for the job.

When asked by Eddie Trunk if he would ever fill in for Neil, Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins quickly responded with, "Dude, I'd get f**king crucified man!"

"You know how many f**king dorks would wanna kick my ass if I tried to be in Rush? It'd be like a nation of dorks chasing me and trying to kill me. 'YOU'RE NOT NEIL PEART!!! DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!!!'"

Many will remember that both he and Foo Fighters founder Dave Grohl inducted Rush into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame back in 2013, and even joined them in their live performance.
