1972 - 2022
One of the greatest drummers in the world died yesterday. Taylor Hawkins has been with the Foo Fighters since 1997 and has been involved in many other bands and projects, including Studio 666 which premiered in theaters earlier this year. He was a husband, a father of three, and by all accounts a genuinely good dude. Mr. Hawkins just turned 50 a little over a month ago, and he was scheduled to perform with the Foo Fighters last night at the Estéreo Picnic Festival in Bogotá.
Rest in peace, Mr. Hawkins. My thoughts are with your family and loved ones. Fifty is far too young.
