The unexpected death of drummer Taylor Hawkins, from the band Foo Fighters, has shaken the artistic class. Many made posts on social media paying their last tribute to the musician and mourning his death.
Beatle Ringo Starr was one of those who paid tribute on the networks: “God bless Taylor. Peace and love to all his family and to the band. Peace and love”.
Nickelback band paid tribute:
“In utter disbelief at the news of Taylor Hawkins. Our deepest condolences to his family, his bandmates, his team, his friends and everyone that was ever touched by the music he created with the Foo Fighters, Alanis Morissette and so many others. This is so incredibly sad.”
Ozzy Osbourne also posted a message on his Instagram profile:
“Taylor Hawkins was a truly great person and an amazing musician. My heart, love and my condolences go out to his wife, his children, his family, his band and his fans. See you on the other side.”
Hawkins was 50 years old, married and the father of two teenage children. He had previously spoken publicly about his struggle with drugs. In 2001, he overdosed on heroin and ended up in a coma.
The drummer joined the band Foo Fighters in 1997 after the group released their second album “The Color and the Shape” following an invitation from Dave Grohl. Before joining the group, Hawkins played drums in Alanis Morissette’s band.
Foo Fighters was touring Latin America, which was cancelled. The band had already played shows in Mexico, Argentina and Chile.
