It has been almost 3 months and still in disbelief. I haven't done so much drumming in my life. You made me a better drummer...wanting to be like you, I tried to play like you. You were one of a kind and will always be loved and missed. See you on the other side and play hard!

In the words of Dr Seuss “Don’t cry because it’s over smile because it happened’. I cried over his loss but grateful to have shared witness of the light of a great human living his dream!! May his family & friends know how fortunate they are to have had Taylor in their lives.

The Foo Fighters were the sound track to my teenage years and beyond. I'll never forget being 17, clinging onto the railings at my first Foo's gig with my best friend. Thank you Taylor for those memories and for the music. I hope you knew how much you meant to so many x



I gotta say your music saved me. I was in an awful place and it was the foo fighters who helped me. Taylor brought and delivered some incredible music to all of us and we are more then grateful to them. You will be dearly missed Taylor. Thank you so much for helping me.


In 98 I attended a show. You stopped the performance an proceeded to inflect human goodness an kindness by getting a woman out of the crowd that was in a bad situation. I came away knowing there are good ppl out there. You will be missed an my sympathies to your loved one’s.

Foo Fighters are the reason I wanted to learn how to play the drums. Taylor is the reason I wanted to get a set of Tama Starclassics whenever I could afford them. I hope you're at peace, wherever you are.

I wish I was as awesome as Taylor Hawkins, what a awesome energy ♥️



I just want to thank you for making my life a better place. God bless you Taylor



You will be missed. Saw Foo Fighters three times. Was about to be our fourth. The band was always playing in Toronto either just before our wedding or around our wedding anniversary. It was awesome to share great times. Hope your drumming wherever you are ❤️

Still can't believe you are gone. I will miss you and I can't even begin to fathom what your family, your friends and bandmates are feeling. So sad to see you go.



Taylor, you touched so many people with your music, smile & love for your family, bandmates and fans, that you will never be forgotten. You left this earth way to early! I was hoping to see you play with my 12 year old son who is also a drummer & inspired by your talent. RIP ❤

Music has always been important to me on an emotional and spiritual level but I wasn't a concert goer. After Cornel passed, I vowed to see all those bands I always said I was going to see. FF was first and still the best. Thank you for everything!
