Although we did of course not know each other, you, Taylor, where kind of close to me. Your music, your way to play the drums, your positive appeal, where able to guide me through very dark times in my life and brighten up the good times even more. I miss you!



Im feeling immense sadness and disbelief.
Thank you for giving me such joy with your music that has got me through good times and sad times. It will live with me and my family forever.
Say hi ti Keith Moon btw!!!



Yesterday morning i woke up to the next notification: "Taylor Hawkins
died", and my heart stopped beating for a long moment. He really was
one of the greatest drummers, and an amazing person. Much love and
support for his close friends, he will always live in our hearts. 💔🕊

I still can’t believe it! I just saw last week in Lollapalooza Chile and you were doing the most amazing show I’ve ever seen. You were so fun, natural and kind with all your fans here, in Argentina and Paraguay. We’ll miss you a lot, please keep rocking in heaven, angel ❤️

Dear Taylor.....You are a legend. Always were. And always will be. Being a fellow drummer, I know we are the beating heart of a band. You brother, were a heart that had double 16 beats!
Dave..This is not the end bro. He would want the music, the rock .. go on. Love you all.

You inspired so many. Your gifts touched even more. For some, like me, the joy you and your brothers brought to rock and roll saved us. You were never a coattail rider. Thank you Taylor. If there’s a festival on the other side, I can’t wait to see you on your kit again.

It's almost a year to the day that I lost my wife after a long illness! The Foo Fighters, were our favourite band and we saw you together so many times. I'm devastated by the news, the world has lost a great performer and my heart goes out to hai family, band mates and friends


Milton Keynes

My dad introduced me to FF 8 years ago and I learned to play bass to their music. Dad on drums me on bass. We’d also sit in the truck and blast FF at 11 Volume and sing along. He cried the night you died and a piece of all of us died with you. We love you. RIP

To Taylor Hawkins. The sunlight that’s never covered or dimmed by a cloudy day. I remember the reason I really got into Foo Fighters was because of the shared love we both had for Roger Taylor. Thank you for inspiring me to play drums and for being authentic to your playing. ❤️🙏
