taylor hawkinsWe’ve woken this morning to the sad news that Taylor Hawkins, drummer with the Foo Fighters, has died in Colombia whilst on tour with the band. He was 50 years old.

The news was announced on the band’s social media accounts, saying:
“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.”

He joined the band in 1997 following the recording of their second album The Colour And The Shape after a stint in Alanis Morissette’s touring band and remained in the drummer stool since. He will forever be remembered for his incredible and ferocious drumming style and his bright personality, a combination that made him stand out in all the band’s live performances as well as on the eight Foo Fighters’ albums on which he played.

The band had been on tour as part of Lollapalooza and had been due to headline the Estereo Picnic festival when the news was announced.

Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time.

Rest in peace Taylor.

  1. Since when does weed and anti depressants cause the heart to enlarge to twice its size and explode? Maxine was the cause of death you know it and we know it!

  2. Lenny, or is that Dr. Lenny? you seem to be an expert on the death’s of people so I bow down to your knowledge. Not sure what a ‘maxine’ is though? is that some medical term that we ‘the sheeple’ don’t know about? It seems that you are au fait to extra knowledge from the autopsy than the rest of us? the report seems to say up to ten drugs were in his system. Maybe you are one of those slavering conspiracy loons who are jumping on someone’s death to rant away whilst the corpse is still warm? after all the ‘maxine’ or maybe the vaccine has caused enlarged heart and death like it did with Brian Jones in 1969, Vinnie Paul and even Elvis. Or maybe Joe Strummer who died of a heart condition…the sheeple don’t get it maaaaan but the vaccine has been killing you for years innit.

    • I was thinking about Vinnie Paul too. Two drummers that died with enlarged hearts. Taylor was 50 and Vinnie was 54.

  3. Myocarditis which is caused by the vaccine means the blood clotted heart expands. Myocarditis levels have risen dramatically amongst the young in all the most vaccinated nations.For your information.

  4. Dr. Lenny – Not sure why you feel the need to write to a music website about such matters when, in reality, you should be writing to The Lancet about the dangers of what you refer to as the ‘Maxine’. I’m glad that you are not my doctor since you cannot even get the word for ‘vaccine’ correct!
    Thanks for the ‘information’ – have you got a source please? or do we have to take the word of a man who spends all night typing away furiously on the internet falling for any old rubbish peddled by other Dr. Lenny’s on their youtube channels?
    All the info I find says that any increase in heart problems has been caused by covid itself – https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-vaccination-myocarditis-and-pericarditis-information-for-healthcare-professionals/information-for-healthcare-professionals-on-myocarditis-and-pericarditis-following-covid-19-vaccination
    I know you will say ‘hey man, that’s the sheeple website run by the maaaan, they just lie to you maaaaan. I was watching a youtube channel on blokefromthepub.com and they said don’t believe what you read so I believed them.
    Also Eric Clapton, Van Morrison, Gillian McKeith, Jeremy Corbyn’s slightly deranged brother and Ian Brown told me so it must be true.
