That Time Taylor Hawkins Got Slapped In The Face By Prince Harry

September 20, 2017

Rock stars often get asked the question, "What's the craziest thing that's happened on tour?" If you're Taylor Hawkins, you can say "getting slapped in the face by royalty" ranks pretty high on the list!

As they make the rounds on their media tour in support of their new album, Concrete and GoldFoo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl and drummer Taylor Hawkins appeared on BBC Breakfast where Hawkins drops a hilarious nugget that involves him being slapped by British royal, Prince Harry of Wales.

Jetlagged and tired from a long flight, Taylor barely had the energy to get himself on stage for a show they had to do. That's where Prince Harry had to spring into action.

Grohl also reflected on a time when he got a visit from the British royal while he was in the hospital after breaking his leg.
