Foo Fighters Drummer on Gene Simmons' Cobain Comments: 'F--k That, It's Nonsense'
Drummer Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters briefly addressed Gene Simmons' recent comments about Kurt Cobain not being a music icon, branding them "nonsense." As previously reported, Kiss bassist claimed that Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse can't be considered as definite music icons due to lack of material, specifically for releasing only two or three albums. "Oh, f--k that," Hawkins told TMZ. "That's just not ... that's nonsense." When asked on whether Cobain and Winehouse are icons in his book, the drummer added: "Whatever that means, yeah. I mean, for sure, especially Nirvana." As previously reported, Simmons gave the two late musicians a mild bashing during a Team Rock interview while elaborating why has the decline of music industry prevented true musical icons to appear. Interestingly enough, the bassist also mentioned Foo Fighters within the same domain, as well as Green Day, saying that although they're both great bands, they're still far from "iconic superstars." You can check out Taylor's brief comments below and let us know what you think in the comments.
