As drummer for the Foo Fighters for over 20 years, Taylor Hawkins has drummed his way through everything from Reading & Leeds Festival, to Radio 1 Live Lounges to sell out stadium shows.
But what does it take to become a drummer? What inspires someone to pick up a pair of drumsticks in the first place? And just how important is the drummer to a band?
In this programme, Taylor gives us a guided tour of his drum kit, talking to Radio 6 Music's Steve Lamacq about his childhood, his influences, his favourite drum loops, and what it’s like drumming with both Alanis Morissette & Dave Grohl.

Genuine, honest question. Anyone mind expanding on how Meg White's drumming is so unique that Taylor Hawkins "can't even do it"? Is he boot-licking to pay respect to a legendary band? I'm an unexperienced and ignorant drummer with shitty technique, but feel like even I could play most of White Stripe's catalog with fair accuracy. I'm probably missing something important that I'm oblivious to.

Im on the cusp of buying my first kit. These guys are heroes to me and it fascinates me that these guys are normal people. There is no secret formula to it. They just play because they love and enjoy it and work hard to keep improving. It is amazing

I LOVE his stories about what it was like at 10 years old. My first "band" was in 1977 when I was 10 years old and my drum set was cardboard boxes. We put together a KISS tribute band and played on the front lawn with the record playing in the garage on an old beat up RCA stereo. Then I got my first kit - a Rogers 5 piece. Absolute garbage....but I traded my bike for it so it was all good. Good times! Thanks Taylor for the trip down memory lane.

Agreed totally, my first kit was a pearl maxwin with hats and 1 ride crash cymbal second hand and it was crap but I loved it. But the love affair started when I was 2 my uncle used to sneak me up to play his younger brother's kit 1972, I just turned 51 this year and I still have my first drum stool that I bought ha ha.

Haha, I feel like if he was really going to impart the secret to his success, one of the first things out of his mouth should have been "....it helps if you can have Dave Grohl write for you and mentor you until you're about 3/4 as good as he is." lol

Underground BADASS music tip: Taylor is wearing a shirt from an little-known band called The Record Company. Do yourself a favor and go listen to their song Off the Ground. It literally changed my life from a horrible relationship. Then come back here tell me what you think. Enjoy!

People don't realize how hard drums are to learn. So much multi-tasking and the band relies on you to keep the beat. Great Masterclass!

@Parker Kenney I've done those marathon 4 hour gigs. Yeah it was tuff but muscle remembering 4 limbs is slot easier than the examples I laid out. I say this in the hopes that you responders know I'm just referring to myself. Right?

@NewJackRustler I agree with that until it’s an hour and thirty minute gig, then the drums is the most challenging thing, especially if it’s a hard rock band.

As a drummer, I've always been in awe at the skill needed to handle strings and keys. I'd break it down like this: a drummer has to control 4 things, the limbs. A guitar player has to control 6 to 10 things, depending on if he's tapping. A piano player has 12 things to control. Drums are easy mode (so to speak) to me compared to the rest of the band :p

Not playing double bass was a surprise to me. He's a pro, never thought to try and build that skill. I wish I knew this when I was younger. I thought having the ability was a drummers must.
