We have just received word that Taylor Hawkins, the drummer for the recently Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inducted band, Foo Fighters, has passed away. The announcement was made shortly before the group was set to perform in Columbia. Taylor Hawkins was 50.
“The Foo Fighters family is devastated by the tragic and untimely loss of our beloved Taylor Hawkins. His musical spirit and infectious laughter will live on with all of us forever,” the band said on Twitter. “Our hearts go out to his wife, children and family, and we ask that their privacy be treated with the utmost respect in this unimaginable difficult time.”
