God might have been ready to accept you though we weren't ready to let go and still having a hard time coming to terms. I have countless memories of watching you play, sing, laugh, and bring joy to so many people. I first saw you in an Alanis Morissette video and I was smitten.

No amount of tattoo’s, heartfelt messages, pictures or memorials will ever be enough to express the inspiration and person Taylor Hawkins was. But the memories and feelings we share are what he leaves behind, I’m always gonna cherish that.

It’s not often that you know more than the lead singers name, but Taylor made a name for himself and was the most genuine, humble, class act person! He just wanted to jam, and jam he did! Man Heaven must sound absolutely beautiful with Taylor banging on the ceiling! RIH Hawkins!

Lost my son Matthew 8-31-20. He was born 2-16-84. Losing Taylor was like a gut punch and felt like I lost Matt all over. Matt was a cool 9 year old kid who introduced me to Nirvana. Years later I introduced him to Foo Fighters. This loss is to close...my heart to all.

I saw you millions of time on my TV and only twice on live (in Germany and Switzerland).
You gave so much of you (the best I would say) each time!
Your smile is definitely written on my mind.

Taylor was one of my favourite drummers. One of my influences as a drummer myself. Someone I talk about to my students to inspire the next generation. To cry over someone I’ve never met was a strange thing but I listened to Foo Fighters ALL day and cried. RIP, man x

I met the Foos on Oct 3, 1997 walking down the street in Norfolk, VA. My friends and I were on the way to a party and I invited them to go with us. It was the night Taylor met his wife Alison. I will always regret not getting pictures with them. I'm on the far left. RIP Taylor❤️

Amo a los Foo. Esperé con emoción la noche del 20 de marzo. Dieron un show increíble, entregaron todo. Lloré toda la noche, vi el amor entre Dave y Taylor, y ese último abrazo sobre el escenario antes de "Somebody to love" . Nunca imaginé este final. Gracias Taylor por tu luz !

Taylor became my favorite drummer when he joined the Foo Fighters ! After seeing them several times and watching how Dave and Taylor played off each other , it made the shows so special for us fans. Watching interviews with Taylor brought us all closer to his light and awesome.

You were a light that shined through from behind the kit and lit the entire stage... Something most drummers only dream of. You were the heart and soul of everything you did and we will miss you and that signature smile/laugh of yours. Rest in Beats Taylor!

Thank you for all you gave us. Grateful to have seen you all in Geelong, that night is even more special now. It's taken me a month to be able to do this. Sending so much love to the Hawkins family, and also to Dave and the boys. The stars got a little brighter 💔

Taylor, I have loved you from the first time I heard you play with FF. it was both a pleasure and a privilege and an honor to see you play and sing. Such a bittersweet memory. I will see you again someday in that Great Gig in the Sky. XXOO - Cindy

Been thinking about and praying for all of you. It's so hard to believe this has happened. I'm so grateful my kids & I saw you in Seattle last fall. It will be a night we will never forget. Much love to all.

Man you are one of the reasons I can surrender to the sound of music - drumming. Taylor Hawkins created a sound of his own. Since the early break with Alannis reaping the share and adding cymbals to exalt the angst of the 90’s music. Foo is Foo because of the undeniable Taylor. 💜

I had the incredible privilege of seeing the Foo fighters live twice, once in 2015 and once in 2018. Each time I saw them, I was amazed by not only Taylor’s technical prowess, but the joy he radiated on stage as well. Rest easy, Taylor. You changed the lives of so many.

Dear Taylor,
I hope heaven’s great. We miss you so much. It hurts to even think about the fact that we lost such a great person. You’re the best drummer to ever exist, you’re a legend and legends never die. I know you’re in a good place.
You will always be my Hero.

I watched them at LLSW Craig Kilborn. After the show Dave and Taylor were at the light next to us. We were two weirdos in a Volvo and they were two weirdos in a VW wagon. We passed words about the show and talked about our plans for the afternoon. That's my cool story bro.

Taylor Hawkins is one of the greatest drummers in the history of music. The gusto with which he drummed was always 110%. Everyone of the ten Foo Fighters shows I have been blessed to witness displayed Taylor leaving every ounce of his soul on the stage. Prayers for his family.
