The Coattail Riders Release New Video


We’ve talked about this project on the Morning Show with the Loon Morning Crew.  Once in a while a fun thing happens in Classic Rock, and this is one of them. 

Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins and his side band The Coattail Riders have shared a new video for “Middle Child,” a song from the group’s latest album, Get The Money. Foo Fighters main man Dave Grohl guests on guitar.

Some of the Coattails that are ridden as part of this project include  Joe Walsh, Pat Smear, Perry Farrell, Roger Taylor, Duff McKagan, Nancy Wilson, Chrissie Hynde and others.

This clip features Hawkins prancing around in leopard leggings while singing to his real-life daughter Annabelle. The video begins with Hawkins and Annabelle watching depressing news headlines on TV, before giving way to a colorful fantasy land inspired by vintage MTV green screens. It ends with father and daughter dancing before flying away on a unicorn.

The fun feel for this video and the positive message for the middle child are infectious.  Check it out.
