Taylor is such an inspiration, the day i found out i took to the drums for the first time. It felt so natural and unlike any instrument i have played before. Taylor Hawkins will be missed by all of us, rest in peace.

Rest in Peace...such a talented and amazing person. So thankful we got to watch you play, hear you sing and witness your incredible stage presence. Sending much Love to your family at this heartbreaking time xxx



Foo fighters have got me through so much in life. I lost my husband in 2020 to a cardiac arrest and he was also a massive fan. I am heartbroken that Taylor has gone but his legacy will live on in his amazing family and friends. Rest easy dude. Lot of love xx

Thank you for your music, it’s brought me out of some really dark places. Rest easy but continue to rock on!🥁! A little afraid, a little alone, a little exhausted 💔



My heart is broken.
You were one of a kind.
I feel so bad for you, for your family, for Dave, for all the FF family.
I hope you’re getting some 1:1 time with Freddie, and say hi to Kurt.
P.S- thanks for throwing me your sticks.

Thank you, Taylor. To say this is tragic is a massive understatement. Saw Foos at Citi Field in 2015. To watch you command 40k was something I'll never forget. Taylor Hawkins Forever.

Taylor was so loved by so many people in this world. Though I never had the privilege of knowing him personally, his beautiful spirit has shined through everything he has done and will continue to live on through those who he loved and those who loved him and his beautiful music.

How great drummer, great guy. Rest in piece❤️



Seen you guys play my town in 2000 at Mckenzie Arena. Taylor was my favorite drummer, favorite interviews and a joy to watch behind the kit as much as in front of the kit. Sending love and prayers to the Foo Family and Taylor's wife, kids and family as well. Rest in Peace T.H. ❤

Cuando una banda te canta directo al corazón, forman parte de ti , de tu afectos más queridos. Es difícil explicar lo que sentimos con esta pérdida, solo enviarles todo el amor y un gran abrazo. Taylor te extrañaremos más de lo que te podrías imaginar.



I hope you are up there rocking with the other Rock Gods now. You were an amazing drummer, fierce friend and a light for so many. I am thankful for the time I got to see you play live. Your energy will be missed.

Taylor was the first drummer I ever saw live. When I was eight years old, he inspired me to get a drumset and play rock n roll for the first time. Foo Fighters was the first band I knew by name. Hopefully His music will go one to inspire young drummers for years to come.

Still shocked and saddened by the loss of Taylor. The energy that you provided the band was endless. Words cannot describe how we (the fans) are feeling but our thoughts, love and prayers are with your family & of course the band 🙏🤟💔

If you only knew the hole in our hearts and our tears. People who didn’t know you personally but were drawn in by your talent, your humor and humility. You said you got to play rock and roll for a living and so had no complaints. Our complaint is you’re gone too soon.

Thank you for inspiring my then 4 year old to play drums. She lit up like I’ve never seen the 1st time she saw you live at 8, riding the rail. She had your drumstick that you played with from that show. I’m devastated as is she trying to understand what happened. We love you ❤️

Dear Taylor, thank you for being a huge part of the best days I’ve ever had. Being at a Foo Fighters gig was always my true form of happiness and you were the heartbeat of that. Your drum style, enthusiasm, big smile & Freddie Mercury covers will be deeply missed. Legend.

I still can’t comprehend the weight and the enormous loss of such a precious person, Taylor. You touched everyone’s heart with your power, energy and beautiful smile.
My heart goes out to the family, band mates and everyone who is moaning all over the world. May rest in peace.

I’m sad at the loss of a talented and beautiful young man.
He lit up the world with his smile and his sense of humour and decency touched everyone he met.
Blessings to everyone who his life touched and prayers to all his loved ones 🙏🏻❤️



Taylor, your energy and infectious smile brightened the stage. Oh to be able to wear leggings like you!
You will be forever missed and never forgotten.

Thank you for everything. You will always be in my heart, forever.



2018. Blossom Music Center. First concert my husband attended after his massive stroke which left him with brain damage and ravaged his body in 2017. Sprung for really good seats. Hubby stood through most of the show. That's when I began to believe we'd be OK. We love you.
