Sorry to read this.. another great drummer and great guy by all accounts.


Foo Fighters Drummer Taylor Hawkins Dead at 50
Band was on tour in South America at the time of the drummer’s death



Taylor Hawkins, the jovial, ferocious drummer for Foo Fighters, has died at the age of 50, according to a statement from the band.

“The Foo Fighters family is devastated by the tragic and untimely loss of our beloved Taylor Hawkins,” read the message, which was posted to social media. “His musical spirit and infectious laughter will live on with all of us forever.” Foo Fighters are currently on tour in South America and were preparing to perform in Bogota, Colombia, a rep for the band told Rolling Stone.

Born in Fort Worth, Texas, Hawkins relocated to Southern California with his family in his early childhood. He first rose to prominence as the touring drummer for Alanis Morissette, joined Foo Fighters in 1997 after the departure of original drummer William Goldsmith.

As news of Hawkins’ death spread, numerous musicians and celebrities took to social media to honor the late drummer. “God bless you Taylor Hawkins. I loved your spirit and your unstoppable rock power,” wrote Rage Against the Machine frontman Tom Morello, sharing a photo of himself and Hawkins alongside Jane’s Addiction’s Perry Farrell. “Rest In Peace my friend.”

That's terrible. I'm so sorry. I got to see the Foo Fighters open for the Police in 2008 at Dodger Stadium. They blew the Police away. Rock and roll, with few younger (relatively) heroes, has just lost another. He was a great drummer.

He produced the reissue of Dennis Wilson's "Pacific Ocean Blue" which as a Pacific Ocean Adventurer I absorbed like a Sponge.

Yeah, absolutely heartbroken, I'd imagine.

Hawkins always came across as such an easy-going person. I enjoyed his interviews a lot. Reports are circulating that his passing could be drug-related. It's such a waste, if that's the case.

Holy Man

RIP. I'm not all that knowledgeable about the Foos, but I liked Hawkins and appreciated his enthusiasm and appreciation for Rush, Charlie etc.

I was gifted a copy of Pacific Ocean Blue by Dennis Wilson several years back and really enjoyed this track that Hawkins helped complete

As unthinkable as it was initially to think about Charlie being replaced with anyone, we all were fortunate that Charlie himself was able to recommend Jordan for the US tour, and clearly wanted the show to go on.

The Foo Fighters will likely continue, but losing Hawkins suddenly like this, mid-tour, has to be very difficult for the band, in terms of when and with whom that they retake the stage.

Hope they are able to.. very tough loss for them.

RIP, caught these guys once and loved the show, the guy was packing a lot of action, which is fairly unusual for a drummer. It won’t change anything but I hope it’s not another one of these « rock casualties », you’d think that would be « over » now…
