I never got the privilege to see him play live I consider Tyler to be one of the greatest drummers of all time, and the only man that, when watching a band with Dave grohl in it, you didn’t wish Dave was the one playing the drums, he was an inspiration, and may he rest in pease



Another musical talent bangin a higher drum ! Was so thankful to see your talent in person at Vax Live in May 2021. Rock in Peace Taylor Hawkins you are with some of the best once again !

Time is too slow for those who wait,
Too swift for those who fear,
Too long for those who grieve,
Too short for those who rejoice,
But for those who love, time is

How can I be consumed by grief? After all, I didn't "know" Taylor. A musician friend reminded me, "But Stan, you DID know Taylor. That's what great artists do...they develop a powerful bond by sharing their most vulnerable selves. You knew him very well." Artwork: Annie Abell

My heart is broken and I'll never forget your smile. I love The Foo soooo much and I'm thinking of all of you - sending my love. I wish I could hug Taylor's wife and children and help them know how very much the one they loved is loved and that the feeling extends to them too.



My husband and I are huge Foo Fighter fans. We awoke yesterday to the news of Taylor’s passing and we’re shocked and saddened. Our prayers are with Taylor’s family, friend and band mates. May he Rest In Peace, knowing his music and life meant so much to so many.

Taylor, una parte mi murió el día que te fuiste de este mundo. De aquí en adelante no sé cómo volver a escuchar a Foo fighters, no sé si tendré la capacidad de no verte mientras Dave te dice: I love You dude. Me quedo con los mejores momentos de ustedes.

Gutted for all your family and those close to you, our loss as a fan is nothing compared to the heartbreak they are going through right now. It was a pleasure to see you live a few times, including at Wembley with John Paul Jones & Jimmy Page and Dave on the drums. Rock in peace.

Feeling numb. My thoughts are with his loved ones and everyone in the Foo family. I had the pleasure of seeing hin play with Alanis in 96 at Rock am Ring and of course with the Foo Fighters years later.
He was truly one of a kind.
Rest well. You‘ll be missed.



My heart goes out to all those who loved him. I cannot imagine the heartbreak you are feeling. Such a tragic, senseless, loss. Prayers for peace and understanding in your lives.
