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.

Ashley Procter


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♥️



Your the only reason i got into drumming what a sad dae when u passed REST IN LIFE....MY FRIEND

I was really shocked and devastated to hear the loss of Taylor Hawkins. I was fortunate to see you play at the fed ex forem. Concrete and Gold tour. Your still my favorite band .



P.S Over and Out



There are no words to describe the loss of a being as wonderful as Taylor, always cheerful, kind, energetic, one person out of a thousand that I will always remember. You are sorely missed! :,(

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



There’s not a day I don’t think about Taylor, he’ll forever live and be loved in my heart 🤍



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.


Maryland, USA

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.

Glenn K


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



Sending condolences to the Hawkins family will be sorely missed rip Taylor

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.

I don't have the words to how much we miss you taylor, I had the privilege to see you in show a year or two before you passed you will be forever remembered and forever loved ❤️



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!


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 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!

Gina Love


My love hope and prayers continued for Allison, the kids and the band. Hoping the New Year continues the healing process of losing a great soul.

Joy Roberts


You are missed by so many.. for the rest of us life goes on... but it's all different now without you...

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!

Taylor was an incredible drummer, but when he stepped in as backing vocalist the Foo Fighters changed forever.
Long live Taylor!

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!

Jak to mówił, ciężko jest być perkusistą w zespole najlepszego perkusisty. Myślę, że był wielki za swój dystans do siebie i chwała mu za to ma wieki.

Sad that this page has to exist. Because you're gone, it does exist. You're not here. You exuded love, for music, people...your smile was infectious. Hammer of the Gods. You were the best. I have a huge hole in my heart, I didn't know you personally. A fan watching you on stage,

My love of music started when I was young but my passion to make music and become a musician started with the Foo Fighters. Taylor always gave me inspiration when I felt discouraged. Now I’m 15, and everyday I try to live as Taylor would’ve, as a shining light and a nice guy.

I‘ve been to a lot of Foo Fighters shows and it was always, not just a concert but a memorable amount of time where I felt pure happiness and collected great memories… I‘ll miss the shows with Taylor but he left a legacy that has to be carried on.



I can only hope you are looking down at all of us, with that goofy, happy smile. You are missed terribly but your Foo family have carried on your legacy. You will never be forgotten. All my love.
