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."
