One of my biggest dreams was to watch the you play live, I know that I'm just one of thousands who felt the same way. We'll always miss the music.



Taylor you were a true hero and aspiration of mine. I’ve loved the foos music since my cousin first played the music to me and my favourite part and still is the drums. It’s such a shame that you have passed but you will in my and many others heart for years.



We will miss you, dear Taylor 💔 Play your drums in Heaven! Sing the Foos songs with the Angels.

As a little girl from Orange County who loved rock n roll, Taylor always reminded me of home. He always will. No one had as much enthusiasm for their craft as he did and that is what should be celebrated forever. A band is only as good as their drummer and he was the best.


Earlier that day we had to say goodbye to our sweet old dog and then find out about Taylor. Needing both more than ever to counteract the other & I can't. My life will never be the same. Thank you for being who you were. It's incredibly dark without your light here.

I’m struggling to find the words. I am so very sorry and so sad. My thoughts are with you, your family and the rest of the Foo’s at this unbelievably sad time. My heart is broken for you all, rest in peace Taylor x

There goes my hero but he will remain as the best drummer in the world and a foo fighter rock on Taylor Hawkins 🤘🤘🤘



Our family is deeply sad. We love dancing and singing on your songs and we will go on.
Music lost one of the best drummer. Forever Taylor



Taylor you were always a beacon of energy and light on stage and I consider myself grateful to have been able to see you 3 times. I was there when you blew the roof off Madison Square Garden and it has replayed in my head ever since.
Rock on you legend. Taylor Forever!

Taylor’s energy was absolutely infectious. He was the backbone of the Foos. My best memory is of him watching Nandi Bushell drum to Everlong at the closing of the LA show at The Forum last August. The sheer joy in his face was shown in his smile. Prayers to his family and friends


Fly high! Your smile , energy, warmth and free Spirit... Will be missed!
May You rest in peace!!!♥️

It feels like i lost a family member, even though we’ve never met. So strange, but as i am listening his music for almost 20 years now, makes me thinking about him every day since then. I guess thats makes me feel like this. Rest in peace my HERO! Our life became so much less…
