So glad I got to listen to your music, and see you play. One of the best to ever do it, and by all accounts one of the loveliest. The world is a sadder place without you.

Taylor Hawkins is one of my favorite drummers ever.

His energetic but refined drumming was and will remain unattainable to me.

Studying it and playing it has always made me feel good, it loads me with positive energy.

I owe him a lot.

Rest In Peace



Truly and inspiration. Loved his drumming style and him as a person. He just radiated joy when he played. I’m going to miss him so much. The rock community just won’t feel the same without him.

Taylor’s beautiful smile and world class drumming will be remembered but also his kindness to FF fans. Thank you to Taylor’s family for sharing him with us. To the band, please take good care of each other. And Dave, know that you are loved and supported by many around the world.



Hey Taylor, thank you for your contribution to Foo Foghters. The music you created and energy you brought every time was incredible. An amazing human being that was too good for this earth. Rest in Power, my friend x

Taylor, thank you for playing the rhythm of my life for many years. In good times and in bad. I can't put into words how much you will be missed. Your power, your smile, the warmth and kindness you radiated. Fuck how lucky we are to have experienced your talent.


I've been following his work since he joined Foo Fighters, without a doubt one of the greatest drummers I've seen, he managed to be a protagonist alongside Dave, it's for few... thanks for the inspiration and the music, I'll be without understanding for a long time , but the show

Foi um grande prazer escuta-lo tocar em 2018 na pedreira, sua perda me abalou muito. Nos vemos do outro lado Taylor Fucking Hawkins. Sua voz sempre será lembrada por mim e por todos



I had the pleasure to see him one time in FF concert in Chile, he was the showman with Dave, giving the greatest show everytime, he will be missed. All the love for the family



On those dark days, Taylor gave me inspiration to keep going through his music, whether with the Foos or with the Coattail Riders, his talent kept me going, and his infectious positivity made it impossible not to keep smiling. His music and his spirit resonated with me.

When I listened to Everlong for the first time, I knew that Dave found a unique drummer, but also fit his style of playing, you're the people everybody wants in their bands, a wonderful and talented drummer. Thank you for all the magic you had created, and may you rest in peace.


Ever since you made my 7 year old son’s day by signing his drumsticks you had my heart. You blew a kiss to me and I to you. You were special beyond measure. Your easy going temperament, love of music and love of your best friend Dave endeared you to all of us. We love you T.
