Saturday morning 26th March my wife woke me with the most horrendous news. I spent the day crying about a man who never knew who I was but whom I felt I knew. I cried so much for the loss of a father, a husband, a friend and a Foo Fighter. You will be sorely missed T.

I recently discovered you all in August 2021 when you did a post Covid concert in New Mexico and immediately fell in love with you and your music. I since then was lucky to see both shows in Las Vegas. I’m devastated, but cannot imagine the pain you all are feeling. Hugs.

Stay strong FF. You have a family all around the world.

Taylor, thank you for all the years of joy you’ve given me. The Foo Fighters came into my life when I lost a loved one and became something that I could listen too and take my mind off things for a little while. I’ll see you play drums again down the road❤️

In shock since two days. After being a huge fan of the Foo fighters since 20 years is was 2,5 years ago that I saw you perform live. Blown away and in tears of happiness. Your power, performance and technical skills are amazing and a hugeinspiration. Lots of love from a drummer



Taylor has been such an influential musician for me. Sure he is for so many. What a major loss for music, art and life. Still I thank him for the happiness his music and human being will bring to my heart and ears for the years to come. All my thoughts go to the whole Foo family.
