Justin Hawkins’ Endorsement of Josh Freese

Justin Hawkins of The Darkness acknowledges Freese’s exceptional talent and experience:

“The thing to remember is he was in Nine Inch Nails for a long time, and in order to be the drummer of Nine Inch Nails, you must be great. That’s the only thing you need to have is just greatness, and he’s got that. This is a brilliant appointment under, you know, it’s bittersweet obviously because we’d all prefer it if Taylor Hawkins was still alive, but in the absence of Taylor Hawkins, Josh Freese is a good call. That’s a good call,”

Hawkins’ endorsement further solidified Freese’s greatness as a musician and underscored the seamless fit he brings to the Foo Fighters
