Una perdida devastadora, mis condolencias a su familia y amigos, la música esta de luto,



I had a dream to see the foo fighters in Israel with Taylor, Dave and the rest ot the bend but that's not going to happen. The world of Rock and roll lost one of the best drummer. So sad. R.I.P Taylor. We love you and miss your



The night before the morning I learnt about your passing T, I had a fantastic dream about meeting you and Dave (not the first time dreaming about you guys)
You will never stop inspirng me, never stop making me want rock,

I have never felt this sad for losing someone I didn't personally know. It's a heartbreak I'd never experienced. So so so sorry for the loss of an incredible human being and awesome musician. Love you forever, Taylor <3 hope you keep rocking wherever you are.



Jagged Little Pill was the first album I ever bought after I watched a live performance that included Taylor. Soon after I picked up the sticks for the first time. I’ve been playing ever since. I found my instrument and my voice because of Taylor. Thank you!

Paul Shanahan


Hard to know what to say to you all. Every song I listen to I hear every beat of Taylor's drums, it's what makes a song, I'm going to miss that sound so much. You are all in our thoughts and prayers, we love Taylor we love all of you. Be safe, stay strong, we are all with you❤


Newcastle, North East, England, UK

I've never met you in person but the way that you shone light into my life is one of the craziest things in my life. You inspired me from afar and I am forever grateful. Your love for music drove me to places I never knew I would reach. Thank you so much for everything Taylor.


My heart is absolutely broken and I'm still waiting for a misconception or something to be announced. I'm a drummer myself and Taylor Hawkins was my idol. It was him who always kept me going, who gave me hope, joy and strength. Rock music will never be the same without you. 🤍🖤

We in the foo family are devestated by your untimely passing. You were an integral part of the band, and we all considered you to be like a cool brother, who made it big. The world is a duller, less vibrant place without you in it.

RIP Taylor.



I’ve only just recently started listening to the foo fighters a couple of weeks ago.
I started by watching every live show I could find on YouTube. And I enjoyed every single one and it was all because of Taylor. His energy made it spectacular. I love and miss you T. RIP.

Taylor Hawkins is one of my most favorite musicians. When I watched the band preform, my favorite part was watching Dave and Taylor communicate. I loved the way they spoke to eachother without having to say a thing. I hope Taylor and his beautiful spirit find rest.

My love and thoughts to your family and all people Foo. You were a powerhouse, a joker, a hard worker and a wonder to watch. I was in awe every time I saw you. You are leaving a huge hole, one I don’t think you knew would be this gapping.



Taylor, you are flying w/rock & roll angels but we here on earth will miss you terribly. No more awesome drum fills, funny antics & clear perfect harmonies. You left way too soon, but will not be forgotten. Condolences to family & Dave & Foos. Rest in spirit, PJ
