Late Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins posthumously guests on a newly released song from Edgar Winter, frontman of “Free Ride” band The Edgar Winter Group.
Hawkins lends his vocals to a track called “Guess I’ll Go Away,” an energetic rocker that nonetheless takes on a heavy new meaning in light of his unexpected passing last month.
“Guess I’ll Go Away” appears on Winter’s new album Brother Johnny, which itself is a tribute to Edgar’s late brother, blues-rock guitar legend Johnny Winter.
“I’m so happy to have had the opportunity to meet [Hawkins],” Winter previously told ABC Audio. “He had such energy, just pure love of music…And it touched my heart.”
Edgar added, “It’s probably one of [Hawkins’] last performances, and it means the world to me to have him on the song.”
“Guess I’ll Go Away,” along with the rest of Brother Johnny, is out today.
Hawkins died March 25 ahead of a Foo Fighters show in Bogotá, Colombia, planned for that night. He was 50 years old.
A few days after Hawkins’ passing, Foo Fighters canceled their upcoming tour dates.
