The world is a darker place without you but we will remember the light you brought. Safe travels Taylor.

To all Taylor's family and friends, you are in our hearts and we lift you up in this sad time.

Thank you!!!!



Foo Fighters have been my favourite band for as long as I can remember, their music was how I met my best friend, we'd just watched studio 666 a few days before he passed, it's like a part of us died too, Rest in Power, I wish I could have seen them live just once



We are in utter shock and disbelief. You and the Foos have given us some of the best times of our lives. Your music, your talent, you were a force of nature behind those drums. I’m just so sad. I send so much love to your family and the band. God bless TH xx

Taylor. When I first heard you play I was completely blown away. Than I heard you sing for the first time and oh my god… you rock!!! I love you and will continue to listen to your music for the rest of my life. You’re in my heart ❤️



See you friend. Your legacy always present in to all drums.... fly in the skys.



I saw you LIVE in Florence 3 years ago, your drums went High on the stage with the moon ahead, and you did a solo that got my goose bumps and tears and I screamed out loud. I want to remember you like this: playing and singing in the night sky. I will miss you with all of my 💔

You & Foo Fighters have grown with me since I was in high school. And though I never found the chance to see you guys live (this year would’ve been the first, ironically), know that I have cherished every song and every memory the music has given me. Rest in paradise



Totally devastated by your loss Taylor 💔 My condolences go out to Taylor’s family, friends and of course the Foo Fighters 😢 RIP Taylor 🙏🏻



One of the Best rock drummer of all time. Rest in peace .
