Foo fighters helped me get up every time I fell down. Taylor helped. I got his smiling face, his energy. . My respects to him and his family. I think a person with such a beautiful smile would only fit in heaven.

Dave, Pat, Nate, Chris, Rami you know you should never give up...

I never knew I could be so saddened by the loss of a man I didn’t meet…it was my privilege to watch you perform many times and truly thank you for being you…as Dave would say “we don’t say good bye..we just say this…”



The Foo is and always will be my all time favorite band. My sincerest condolences to Taylors family..including his band family and all the other fans. He will be fondly remembered forever. Rest in Peace Taylor

Fortunate to meet Taylor before the 2017 Casper, WY show. All he wanted to do was go watch the Vikings game, but said he would come back to take a picture after. Explained I didn't care about the picture and to just put on a hell of a show - he (and the band) did. #fooever

Taylor, I can barely make out the words to tell you how bad I feel for your family and your friends right now. We are just fans and we know in return that you love us. I just really wish that your fans could have helped you through a bad time. With all our love.

My heart broke when I heard the news. I saw the Foo Fighters live twice. Once in Toronto (2005 tk my three kids who were 12,9,and 6 -their first ever concert). The 2nd time was London, Ontario in 2008. Taylor, you were simply one of a kind, always smiling. est in sweetest peace!

Oliver, Annabelle, Everleigh, I hope you will see this and the hundreds of other tributes that are being left on this page. While we can’t bring your dad back you must know what an impact he had on this world and all of us. You have to know that you were his greatest joy!



Taylor losing you is devastating to me and we have never even met. It is u bearable to know I will never be at a show seeing your smiling face and witnessing your undeniable talent. No one could replace you. I am so grateful I was able to see your performances! Rest In Peace Bud

I was always so intrigued by your smile, it somehow gave me hope and brought some light into my darkness.

My deepest condolences to the band. I’ve pondered for the past few days why this loss has effected me so much. To mourn so deeply for a life I didn’t know? But, I think it’s because the entire Foos band made me feel like family. My love is being sent to the band.

My sincerest condolences to the Hawkins family, band mates and fans world wide. I was lucky enough to experience the awesome Live energy of TH twice in my life, back in 1999 at Brixton Academy and Glastonbury festival in 2017. Thanks for the music, unforgettable!



I was lucky enough to attend two Foo Fighters concerts. One in Atlantic City at the Borgata and at Bamboozle Festival in Asbury Park. Both shows blew me away and I will always remember Taylor's infectious smile and energy during the shows. Thank you for being so amazing.

So much love for an incredible talent and a beautiful soul. Have been a fan since 96 and am so lucky to have seen the band several times over the years. Taylor, your epic solo at the last London gig was insane - a memory I will treasure forever. We love and miss you greatly 💔

Beautiful, light filled, pure soul Taylor... I will remember you with joy until my heart plays its final beat... May your family and bandmates gain strength from the knowledge of how loved you are.... Rock out up there, light up the sky brother 💔💔😪



An icon, a talent, a legend, an inspiration, a hero to so many and all these things added still doesn't equate the loss to your family, your friends, your fans and the world of music. To me, you were always the sunshine of the band, that smile, your energy. You'll be missed 💔



Taylor left a void. The world feels a lot emptier knowing his energy, his presence, his laughter and his talent is gone. He made a big impact on me growing up. This feels so untimely and so wrong. Feels like I've lost a long-time friend. Sending much love to everyone affected. 🖤
