Queen Stars Join Hawkins On Wilson Track
QUEEN stars BRIAN MAY and ROGER TAYLOR joined the FOO FIGHTERS' TAYLOR HAWKINS on a tribute to late THE BEACH BOYS drummer DENNIS WILSON.
Drummer Hawkins was drafted in to provide vocals on Holy Man, which will feature on an updated version of Wilson's 1977 acclaimed solo album Pacific Ocean Blue.
And Hawkins has been joined by May and Taylor who also wanted to pay tribute to the star, who died in 1983.
May insists it was an opportunity he couldn't turn down.
He says, "I got inspired. It was a song that Dennis had begun shortly before he died but never finished. The whole track spoke to me like a poem. I wanted to do my bit to realise it to its full potential, so the whole thing now has a subtle Queen overtone."
