You and the foo made my life breathable. Words cannot express how your music saved my life many times. I hope that the foo fighters fam and your family will also find comfort in the music that many of us been. Thank you.



Sending love and light to Taylor’s family, his Foo family, especially Dave. Foo’s have such a special place in my family. My son was raised listening, rocking along at 3, took him to his first show at 8. Taylor was a bright light, I’m going to miss seeing him shine. Rest in Rock

I hope you knew how loved you are! You leave a void in our hearts that can never be filled! I'll always remember my first concert of the Foos in 2009 in a small venue in Berlin. Since that my heart beats in your rhythm.

Watching Taylor on stage with Dave opening for RATM in 1997, they did a double drum intro that has always been stuck in my head as one of the greatest moments in a concert, and I became a Taylor fan right away. To the Family, the Band and all us Fans, my sincerest condolences.



Taylor - you were magic. Simply magic. Your loss has left a void that we'll never be able to fill, but we're all a little better off for the time that you spent sharing that magic with us. Gone, but never EVER forgotten. Rest easy, we'll keep the tempo.

I've been a foos fan since the 90's. It wasn't until three just few years I truly realized what an impact they'd had on me, both in life and in the music I wrote myself. I've always been in awe of Taylor's drum skills and how it inspired my own drumming. RIP TH 💔

I was honoured to have seen Taylor play on several occasions with the Foo Fighters, originally thinking that nobody would ever be as good as Dave on drums. I’m privileged to have been proven wrong and Taylor will, alongside Dave Grohl, Everlong be My Hero. Xx
