Taylor Hawkins is here for a good time. Here for him right now is New York City, where he phones in from and excuses his voice. “I’m kind of getting over a cold right now,” he says. “Trying to, anyways. Everyone’s sick at our house.” It’s the initial glimpse I get of Taylor Hawkins, Hidden Hills Dad – a title he’s been wearing for years, sure, but a title less known to those who have seen him grow into a music icon as the drummer for Foo Fighters for the better half of his life.
