The legacy of Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins lives on, now in this new Johnny Winter cover. The cover is a part of the Brother Johnny covers album put together by Winter's younger brother Edgar Winter. "Guess I'll Go Away" features Hawkins absolutely crushing lead vocals, which Edgar said was nothing short of an incredible experience to watch in the studio.

"I had only just met Taylor, and barely got to know him, but I was so impressed by his sincerity, positive energy, and pure enthusiasm. He had a unique spontaneous style different from anyone I've ever worked with before. I can be very opinionated—but as soon as heard what he was doing, I knew it was best to step back, stay out of the way, and let him do his thing. That session was an experience I will never forget.

"When I tried to open a business discussion, he simply would not hear of it. He said—I don't want ANYTHING for doing this, I just want'a get out there and Rock. And Rock HE DID! I don't know if it was out of respect for Johnny, a desire to help me in what I was doing, compassion for the nature of the project, or his friendship with [engineer and producer Ross Hogarth]. Most probably all these things—but whatever it was, he gave it His ALL!"

Brother Johnny is out now.
