Taylor joined Foo Fighters in 1997, however, he has been active in the music industry since 1994: at the very beginning of his career, Hawkins was the drummer for Alanis Morissette, of the band Sylvia, and for Sass Jordan. Along with Alanis Morissette, Taylor has appeared in a few videos – You Oughta Know, and You Learn. Collaboration with such a famous singer in Taylor`s early career undoubtedly benefited his net worth.

Quotes

#Quote
1It was thanks to Rush that I got into Genesis. After listening to Neil, I bought the Seconds Out live album, which was released in 1977. It's just amazing. Not only hearing Phil Collins playing the drums, but also singing. He gets a really bad rap from some people for 'daring' to take over after Peter Gabriel quit, but you just hear the way he sounds here. The beauty of this album is that it's got songs from ...Trick Of The Tail, the first album Genesis did without Gabriel. Collins is an incredible drummer. Anyone who wants to be good on the drums should check him out - the man is a master.
2[on Roger Taylor of Queen] Every time Roger opens up his hi-hat or hits the snare, you just know that's him playing. It's those elements that give a band personality and are so often missing today.
3[on Phil Collins] People seem to have forgotten that Phil is one of the greatest rock drummers ever to have walked the planet. I've been lucky enough to have had drum lessons from people like Chad (Smith) and Dave (Grohl) in the past, but I'd love to get a lesson from him. So Phil, if you're out there, please come and teach me how to play 'properly'.
4Why go on vacation when work is so much more fun.
