rest in peace Taylor. we miss you, see you on the otherside x


I became a Foo Fighters fan after watching an interview Taylor did with BBC radio about the drums. It’s also when I realized I wanted to play drums. I got to see them for the first and last time at Shakey Knees this past year and it was so awesome. I watched Taylor the whole time

There is now way I could ever describe the immense sadness I feel right now. However, it is better to celebrate the life Taylor lived and the years and years of joy he gave us drumming into our hearts. Gone too soon but never forgotten, we all love you Taylor.



The Foo’s music has helped me through many difficult situations in my life. It hurts now because those same songs now bring me to tears. As ozzy said we’ll see you on the other side T. Thanks for the memories.

Two stories I have of Taylor, when I first met him in Oakland California and I had showed him my Foo Fighters tattoo and he said “ hey dude you’re not gonna kick my ass in 10 years right?” “ I said for what!” He said “ well cause you’re probably regret it in 10 years” we Laughed

I feel so privileged having been able to witness Taylor's energy and talent live. May his work live on through family, friends, and fans. He will be forever missed.



I think everyone will miss such a talented musician. Great drummer and better showman. As Oasis says: you are gonna live forever.



Thanks for your energy and your smile, your kindness, thanks you for all, we will miss you a lot but, we remember you always, you are my hero!



I remember mailing you back in 98-99 before TNLTL came out about if you guys would come and play in Sweden, and I got an answer from you where you said that it will happen. Just the humbleness in answering mails from fans, made me a really happy 16 year old fan. We will miss you!

Chris Bolin


I’m lucky to have witnessed Taylor’s greatness many times, and I’m heartbroken over this loss. One of my favorite memories is watching him belt out Under Pressure on the mic while Roger Taylor took over the drums. The smile on his face was always so contagious. A true legend 💔


RIP Taylor...



Vuela alto "The Hawk", gracias por tu música y tú hermosa sonrisa. Siempre en nuestros corazones.

Taylor, I can’t thank you enough for making the nights I spent watching you and the band sell out stadiums and my whole life in general so fucking special. There will never be anyone like you. We never really say goodbye, we just say… Everlong.

They say you should never meet your heroes. That was not true of Taylor Hawkins. I had the pleasure of meeting him in Belfast in 2019. He quite happily chatted with me about the setlist. A beautiful, kind man and fantastic musician who will be sorely missed.



Taylor you will be very much missed and always remembered. You leave a legacy behind that no-one can replace. Sleep peacefully. Love to your family and friends.



You will be sorely missed, legend. Thanks for everything. Rest in peace.
