Good news! Ironically I accidently came across you page & happen to know that Taylor Hawkins has his own band: Taylor Hawkins and the Coattail Riders. I couldn't tell you how their sound is, but might as well check them out.

I listened to a few samples of Hawkins' CD off of Barnes & Noble's website. The band is not too far of a stretch from the Foo Fighters, though possibly a bit lighter and sunnier. It also confirmed my ascertations that Hawkins' voice is suited better for more acoustic-flavored songs. Others may disagree, but when Hawkins tries to "rock out" with his band, pusing a harder and heavier sound, he sounds too much like every other alternative post-grunge rock band.
