Blessed to have seen you play many times Taylor, last time right at the front at Glastonbury a gig which will stay with me for life. Your departure will leave a gaping big hole in the world of music. Thinking of the Hawkins family, Dave, the band and all that loved him. ❤️💔

At a complete loss of words. I feel devastated for the Hawkins, the band, and all the Foo fans around the world. May he rest in peace. I am forever grateful for the music he has left us with. Till we meet again.



I, as a fan, feel devastated by this loss, one of my dreams would be to see a concert by the band, what a shame.



It's hard to find words right now.
But I'm grateful for all the joy and energy you've brought to us through music. You will always live in our hearts and memory. You are one of my favorite drummers.
I hope you are fine wherever you are.

For my 18 yr. old daughter’s first concert I took her to the Foo’s along with the Struts. She got to see her mom relive her youth that night! We had so much fun dancing, singing…just going tucking nuts!!! We’ve been reliving that night and feeling blessed having gotten to see you

I didn't get the pleasure of meeting Taylor but he had a huge impact on me. I loved his music, his smile, his laugh. I loved his sense of humour and how down to earth he was. I'm going to miss seeing him behind his drumkit or on the mic. I miss you Taylor. RIP.

Taylor is one of the best drummers ever. He could sing while playing drums which isn't something you can do off the ground. I might not know him personally but he seemed like a good guy.



I can imagine how devastating this is, specially to Dave, we are praying, in my home, for power to FF members and Taylor 's family...
