    So harsh, seemed a properly cool dude and along with Grohl a powerhouse.

    Glad I got to see them at least once, he leaves a rock and roll legacy behind him.

    WOAHHH! Awww, man. :54: Seriously sad to hear of this. Was fortunate to catch the Foo Fighters a couple of times live and he was an integral part of that since almost the beginning.

    Thoughts are with his family and friends, may he rest in peace.

    In shock at this. Horrendous.

    Can’t imagine how Dave Grohl is feeling. Kurt Cobain and now Taylor Hawkins gone far too early.

    Was the first thing my Mrs said this morning, awful news. First really got into Foo Fighters after their Jools Holland appearance for There is Nothing Left to Lose, where if I remember correctly they played Learn to Fly and Generator. Sad news indeed, actually the first live band I ever saw now that I think about it, 2002 at the SECC.

    Their newer stuff I wasn't a huge fan of but aye, he always came across well in interviews, and obviously a great drummer.

    Very sad news.

    A crucial part of the Foo Fighters machine and even looked and played like Dave Grohl.

    And also like Dave, came across as really good guy.

    I only got to see them once but I'm very glad I did because they put on an outstanding show.

    R.I.P. ☘️

    RIP Taylor. One of the true drumming greats.

    My heart goes out to his family and the band. I can’t even imagine how Dave Grohl must be feeling after all he’s been through to now lose the guy he referred to as his soulmate. Heartbreaking.
