This has been the biggest shock this year. Followed the guys for a long time. Taylor was an awesome musician. Had a brilliant voice. Remember watching the Leeds festival when he sang a queen's under pressure. Simply fab. Thoughts and prayers to his family & all FF's family.🙏

R.I.P Taylor. Thank you for sharing your gift of music with us all through your talented and charismatic drum playing and singi. Your energy was felt 100% at every show, and I am forever grateful of the 3 times I saw you and FF. Beautiful, kind soul, you will be deeply missed. ❤

I'm so grateful for the music you helped bring to the world and to have been able to see you and the Foos play at Wrigley. I will always regret not making it back to a show and getting right up front. Much love to your family and friends. You will be missed.❤



I can’t believe I’m never going to see that smile ever again. I lovingly called you Bingo because you always had a massive smile just like the character from the Banana Splits. You were a powerhouse behind that kit, so talented, funny and kind. You will be greatly missed 💔😭❤️🤘🏻

The visual introduction to Taylor Hawkins playing drums as a member of Foo Fighters in May of 1997 was a catalyst to a rich life of musical joy and happiness for me.  The amount of joy he and that band have provided millions of humans cannot be taken away.



I can not believe this. My soul breaks. R.I.P Taylor

Taylor, one of my favorite musicians ever, who was, is and always will be a legend and an inspiration to all of us. A kind man who everyone loves and even though I never met him, was always present in my life with his music. Thank you for everything Taylor 🤍



I woke up at 3 am to use the bathroom when I got the news as soon as I saw the headline Foo Fighters Drummer Taylor Hawkins dead at 50 I immediately got chills remembering their concert I went to 6 months earlier and I just sat there and cried for 2 hours I’m gonna miss u man

I woke to the tragic news yesterday about my fav band.
Shock and disbelief. This is a huge loss for Taylor’s wife, kids, family, friends, his bands, fans and Dave ‘a brother from another mother’.
My thoughts are with everyone with a heavy heart.
RILDM & Rock on Taylor 🤘
