Earlier this month Foo Fighters flew all the way to Australia for one gig for 30,000 people. Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear and Rami Jaffee joined Dangerous Dave for a special chat ahead of the gig. We've had the pleasure of hanging out with the Fooies more than a handful of times, but little did we know it would be our last time hanging out with the incredible Taylor Hawkins.

Clocking 50 laps around the planet only a month before his untimely passing, Taylor told us how he spent his last birthday.

As we wallow through our memories of Taylor, we can't go passed the time he and Dave Grohl told Triple M's Jane Kennedy the all-time most amazing story ever. There's Strip Clubs, there's Pantera, there's that beautiful mateship between Taylor and Dave. It was worth Jane putting down all those notes she made for the interview so we got this beaut of a yarn instead.
