Taylor Hawkins, the man normally found behind the drum kit in the Foo Fighters, has explained how Dave Grohl helped him out with his side project.

His other band, Taylor Hawkins and the Coattail Riders, are preparing to release their second record, Red Light Fever, next week (April 20th 2010), with guest appearances on the album including performances by Queen stars Brian May and Roger Taylor.

Hawkins told Spinner Music that electric guitar player Grohl had a big say in the sound of the record during its early stages.

"He played a lot of rhythm guitar on the record," Hawkins said of his colleague in the Foo Fighters. "He was very helpful early on with arrangements."

Despite Foo Fighters currently being on hiatus, Grohl is certainly keeping himself busy.

As well as helping out Hawkins, the electric guitar player has taken a turn behind the drum kit in supergroup Them Crooked Vultures, which also features John Paul Jones from Led Zeppelin and Joshua Homme of Queens of the Stone Age.
