I don't think Dave was mad at him, just unimpressed with his drumming. He wanted the guy, William Goldsmith, to play on the next tour but Goldsmith was so insulted that Dave re-recorded all of his parts that he quit the band.
Then Dave calls Taylor to ask if he knows a good touring drummer and Hawkins himself wanted the job. The rest is history.
The Foos are supposed to have a new record out next year. Can't wait!
