Watch Foo Fighter’s Taylor Hawkins drum like a pro in 9th grade

Proving he was just another kid with dreams of becoming rockstar, a video has surfaced of Foo Fighter’s Taylor Hawkins playing the drums in 9th grade.

Filmed in 1987, the clip shows Hawkins performing at Laguna Beach High School’s ‘Battle of the Bands’ competition.

Of course, the difference between this talent contest and your average high school stint is that Hawkins is pretty good for his age.

That and the fact he went on to join one of the world’s most popular rock bands. Hey, least he’ll have something to talk about at any potential high school reunions, right?

Watch the video in full below.
