Taylor Hawkins has recalled how he and Nate Mendel went for a late night Chicken Tikka Masala with Brian May and Roger Taylor.

Foo Fighters went for a curry with Queen during their recent stay in London.

The Sky Is A Neighborhood rockers were in the UK capital in September for a performance at The O2 arena, and drummer Taylor Hawkins revealed they kept up a band tradition by going out for a late-night spicy feast, and this time were joined by the Bohemian Rhapsody guitarist Brian May and famous sticksman Roger Taylor.

Speaking to the new issue of NME magazine, Taylor said: "It's a bit of a tradition, whenever we come here, to go for a curry. I still totally still get all fanboy around them sometimes, even though I've met them so many times."

During their stay, Chris Moyles showed Queen mega-fan Hawkins the first footage of of Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury.
