Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins says the band's next album is currently just a "germ" in Dave Grohl's head.  He told Billboard at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas, this week that they haven't "really gotten down to brass tacks" just yet when it comes to the follow-up to 2011's "Wasting Light." 

Grohl adds that they're just writing at the moment, but he says he has a "crazy," non-conventional idea of what he wants to do when it comes time to record the album.  He also notes that it's still unclear exactly when that will happen.  Grohl explains that the Foo Fighters work best at their own pace, which means "sometimes [an album] happens quickly and sometimes it takes awhile." 

Meanwhile, Grohl and Hawkins also touched on the possibility of a full tour with the Sound City Players.  Grohl says he's received plenty of requests, and he'd "give his left arm" to make it happen. 

But he admits that putting together a tour with the other band members - including Stevie Nicks, John Fogerty, Rick Springfield and many more - would be as "nuts" as "taking 'Hollywood Squares' on the road." 

Still, Grohl doesn't seem to think the supergroup's South by Southwest performance Thursday night will be their last, joking that they're already set to "play the Oscar party."
