Motley Crue members Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee had teamed up with Classless Act singer Derek Day to perform “Home Sweet Home” at the Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concert in Los Angeles last night.
Foo Fighters celebrated Taylor Hawkins’ memory and music at a special gig in London on Saturday, September 3. Hawkins, the band’s drummer since 1997, died in Bogotá, Colombia on March 25. He was 50 years old. Foo Fighters performed for a couple of hours at Wembley Stadium for a special tribute show for the late band drummer Taylor Hawkins. ‘The Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concerts’ also took place at LA’s Kia Forum on September 27.
The line-up was also released recently. It included Motley Crue member Tommy Lee. However, one of the singers also missed the show. It has been also noted how welcoming guests included Miley Cyrus, Def Leppard, Dave Chappelle, and more.
Motley Crue joins Classless Act at the Taylor Hawkins Tribute Show
“You can’t play a show in LA without Motley Crue,” Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl said before he and his bandmates joined Lee, Sixx and Day to play the hit 1985 Theatre of Pain ballad as well as an energetic version of Too Fast for Love‘s “Live Wire.”
Sixx was known to occasionally make surprise appearances with Hawkins’ cover band, Chevy Metal. In a video message shown at the London Taylor Hawkins tribute concert earlier this month, the Motley Crue bassist recalled deeper aspects of the rockers’ friendship.
“If I could say anything to you, Taylor, it would be thank you for all those crazy phone calls,” Sixx said in the video. “Usually very early in the morning. I’d be having a cup of coffee. I’d be stirring out in the backyard, and you would call, and we’d talk about our favorite bands. We would talk about things that would piss us off and things that we loved.
“The one thing I learned from you is to really believe in yourself. I remember there were a couple of times, I was having some rough times, and you were just like: “Sixx, you’re a badass. You’re a badass. You’re a great songwriter.”
“You were just always pumping me up and making me feel like I could make whatever I was going through happen. I could succeed at whatever I was trying to do.”
In the video, Sixx further revealed that he and Hawkins had discussed “doing a band together at some point.” He closed the clip by thanking the drummer for “being there for me as a friend.”
Es cierto, los Foo‘s no podrían haber tocado en Los Ángeles sin contar con Motley Crue, Nikki Sixx y Tommy Lee se unieron -con Derek Day cantando- a los Fighters para hacer dos temas, Live Wire, favorito de #taylorhawkins y Home Sweet Home!
