This took my breath away.

I just saw a bit of their lollopalooza Chile set from last week. Taylor had cb 700 written on his bass drum head, which is such a great joke for drummers. He seemed like a really great, kind and happy person. And a great drummer…

Rest In Peace

RIP, this is so sad.

I just saw the Foo Fighters in December. One of that show’s highlights was Dave Grohl taking over on drums while Hawkins sang a rousing cover of Queen’s “Somebody to Love”.

It's terrible and shocking. Anything I knew or saw of him pointed to him being a tremendous person, it's very unfortunate.

Wikipedia says he died of a heroin overdose. He had heroin issues in the past, yet they don't say how they know that, so who knows.

I was thinking of going to see them later in the Fall too. I assume the tour will be cancelled or delayed at least.

Weird that Grohl was a drummer who lost his front man, and then winds up being the front man and loses his drummer.

RIP

He also did great work for Alanis Morrisette

I hope doing Studio 666 was a jinx

MTV Live is playing Foo Fighter videos all day

Kind of forgot he had another band too- Taylor Hawkins and the Coattail Riders. Listened to a few of their songs in the past, but don’t know as much about them as I do with Foo Fighters.

Wikipedia now says cause of death is unconfirmed.

He was 50 but probably could have passed for late 20's or 30's.
