Unabashed energy personified. Chevy Metal show at Kaboo and last year’s Ohana. He was everywhere at all at once. A musicologist and a musician. I’m sad for his loss, for his band, his family, and the world. A beautiful set of concerts that showcased his musical life & influence.

Con Tylor se fue una parte de mi adolescencia, de mi juventud y de mi vida. Siempre fue una inspiración de lo que es un buen artista.

Vuela alto, Hawkins.

You were my biggest musical inspiration as a drummer and singer. Your energy, humour and smile remain unforgotten. May your work and spirit live on and make this planet a better place. All the best to you and the Foo Fighters family. With love, respect and gratitude...

Taylor,your bright happy light is surely missed and a empty place in everyone's heart.. and now a huge emptiness in the musical industry that cannot ever be replaced. I know you're doing well now up with all the happy musicians and making beautiful music together!

Taylor- you’ve been in my ears since I was 11 years old. Thank you for being with me through all of life’s ups and downs since then. The world is dimmer without your light, but we will move forward attempting to bring that light you exuded to others.

I still can’t hold my tears back when I watch a movie from anything with Taylor! My best concert memory is Stockholm when Dave broke his leg, Taylor just kept playing the drums and kept us in the arena♥️

Taylor, you were my first drummer crush, starting with the day I saw you play with Alanis. We all watched you flourish from a wacky talented kid into a brilliantly talented man. I will ALWAYS miss you.

7 months later & I still can’t understand that you’re not here anymore. So many people so deeply affected by a loss of somebody they never knew. They broke the mold when they made you, Taylor. A beautiful soul gone FAR too soon but never, EVER forgotten x

My house rocks Foo songs daily. My granddaughters and I wildly dance to your vocals on Led Zeppelin’s Rock & Roll. ❤️ that the Laguna Beach memorial gives musicians a place to share their talents. That’s SO way cool, just like you. Your beat will go on & on & on & on. ❤️you Taylor!

In my 32 spins around the sun, nothing has ever hurt like this. Over 7 months on, the pain is still palpable and the grief continues to strike at any time, such as yesterday listening to Aurora. Thank you for the memories and my 13 incredible Foo Fighters shows. I loved you x

Taylor, I always thought you were a great drummer and really enjoyed seeing you on stage with your bandmates. I remember the Concrete and Gold tour, noticed you were wearing EVH pants, and bought a EVH outfit to wear to my next FF show. You are so missed. Thank you; and RIP.

You've inspired me in way's that no other drummer could ever. Ever since I was six year's old I wanted to be in a band like you and at sixteen here I am drumming for one.

You're a legend to me and so many others, may the Hawk R.I.P

ever since i saw what your brothers did for you, i haven’t stopped crying at all. You will be eternally missed but, now that you’re an angel, look down on your brothers, children and wife and let them know that this isn’t a goodbye but a “see you later”. ❤️

I'm a former professional musician myself - and older than all the Foo Fighters, other than Pat. Like Taylor, I've also been a 'music tragic' all my life, but I've never felt sadder about the loss of any musician and that's a true sign of the genuine esteem I held Taylor in.

To all that lost an amazing friend, drummer, and family man my deepest condolences, watching this band from afar their music and songs got me thru a lot as well as their humor, but I have learned in life if you close your eyes and listen to your heart you will hear and feel him

Loosing someone that you love is never going to be a easy thing to deal with. I just lost my guitar player Denny, that I grew up with. It's been almost two years. And I still hurt bad . Please except my condolences for Taylor and I hope everyone's pain turns into happy memories.

It has been more than nine months and it is still hard to accept that Taylor is gone... Is it weird to feel so sad for losing somebody you never met, but hurts the same as losing a friend. See you soon, Taylor!

Petra

Your kindness, enthusiasm & generosity radiated with every interaction with fans. You were the anti- rockstar. No ego and love for all. It was inspiring. Your music means so much to me and although you've left us all too soon I will carry you in my heart forever. Rest in beats♡

I'm now taking comfort in knowing you'll always have my back. The world does not shine as brightly without you, but I'm certain you're shining brighter than ever. ✨️

Love and prayers to your family, friends and fans!

I’m so very sorry for this huge loss! My love goes out to Taylor’s family & brothers from the Foos. Thank you for being the calibre of a man & musician that you were. My dream was to meet you and the Foos. Not just because of the music. That’s a given. The Foos are so much more.

Taylor was one of my greatest influences. Not only as a drummer, but as an example of a person. He was kindhearted, funny and humble. I will never forget him, and I would like to thank Foo Fighters for the amazing music they have provided in my early teen years.

Taylor’s music was and is getting me thru the most difficult time of my life. I listen to him (and the foo’s) while receiving weekly chemo infusions. It takes me away to a place of peace, wonderment and joy. Much love and for always grateful x

Taylor seemed like the kind of person you would just want to know regardless of being in a rock band, how he managed to be so humble and modest after so much success amazes me. So unfortunate the world lost him so soon. So glad I saw them inducted to the Rock Hall of Fame!

No one has ever touched my heart the way Taylor has. Losing who I consider the best musician hurts!
I loved Taylor’s zest for life, his compassion for others and of course his talent!
The Foos may get another drummer, but Taylor can never be replaced. #neverforgotten

I created this for you Taylor. Your loss hit me hard. I cried. I played your music so loud for days after. Inwas booked to see the Foo Fighters in the U.K in June and my heart sank the moment I knew that was never going to happen, that I'd never see you drumming live.

My friend needed someone to go with her to Vegas to see the Foos. It sounded fun so I gladly accepted. I loved the concert but that drummer… he carried the band. Then, he was gone. I was devistated. We miss you Taylor.

Thank you for the music Taylor. The Foo’s were a huge part of healing for me during a dark time. You have been such an inspiration to my 15 yr old who plays drums. My heart sends so much healing light and love to your family and the band you will and are so terribly missed. ❤️

As someone who quite literally grew up with this band seeing y’all in concert in 2018 still remains to be the best day of my life. The loss of Taylor hit hard, as if I had lost a friend. All I can say is thanks for the memories, the music and the inspiration. 🤍

Taylor is a true legend. I’ve never been so emotionally moved as the tribute show at Wembly and I only streamed the shit! What Taylor left with everyone is a treasure whether it be music or just some rad vibes. This guy finally started playing at 36. Thank you Taylor!
