Queen drummer Roger Taylor has revealed he's planning to collaborate with Foo Fighters' Taylor Hawkins.

Taylor described the US band's drummer was “one of my best blood brothers” and said he hoped they could tour together.

"I’ve been thinking about doing a tour next year - a very quick tour - with Taylor Hawkins from the Foo Fighters," Taylor told BBC 6 Music.

"He’s like one of my best blood brothers! So we might do that. That sounds like fun.”

Taylor, who is currently promoting his new solo single, also defended his and bandmate Brian May's recent appearance on The X Factor.

He said: "It is was it is. I find it enormously flattering that they devoted a whole show to our songs, which is great.

“It brings our songs to more people, which is part of what we’re about.

"So I wouldn’t sit here all high and mighty and knock it. It’s an entertainment, and it was fun. It was fun being the only live thing as well!"

Taylor's new single 'The Unblinking Eye (Everything Is Broken)' is out on Monday (November 23).
