I had the honour of meeting you in Dublin 2019. You happily gave us your time, let us take our photos, signed my arm and made us laugh. For me, i met a superstar and a genuinely nice sweet guy. It made my day more than words can ever express.
You will be sorely missed.
RIP Taylor

I grew up loving the Foo Fighters and watching Learn to fly before school everyday. I wore my Foo Fighters tank top and Hoody today to remember you by. Thank you for all the wonderful music you brought into our lives! Love, Des



Dear Taylor, I did not know you personally but I loved the Foos since I was a teenager - your music means so much to me and in my 40s I still love watching you play the drums. I woke up yesterday (CET) and was shocked by reading about your death! Ruhe in Frieden!



Thankyou for music, for rock n roll and for all the amazing nights singing along with you and the boys. Your smile and laughter will be so missed. Lots of love to your family and the band ❤️🥁 fly high mr Hawkins🦅

Muchas gracias por regalarnos tantos sin fin de emociones con las canciones que compusiste junto con la banda, que sepas que un chico en un pais lejano sobrelleva varias cosas con tu increible bateria. RIP Taylor.



Struggling to comprehend how someone with such a zest for life and so much to give to music and beyond can just be gone in a moment. So glad he made it in life and was able to share his talents with the world. I’m sure he had the best of times & best life poss with the Foo’s.
