Celebs Paid Tribute To Foo Fighters Drummer Taylor Hawkins

Shortly after the Foo Fighters drummer died, celebs took to their social media to pay homage to Taylor Hawkins.

The Foo Fighters, consisting of Dave Grohl, Pat Smear, Chris Shiflett, Nate Mendel, and Rami Jaffee, confirmed the loss of Taylor Hawkins in a statement shared on their Twitter account. Hawkins died at the age of 50, meanwhile, the cause of his death has not yet been revealed.

Shortly after the Foo Fighters drummer died, celebs paid homage to the Hawkins. Travis Barker paid tribute to his fellow musician with an Instagram post dedicated in his honor. “I don’t have the words,” the Blink-182 drummer began the caption of his post, which accompanied a black-and-white image of Hawkins sitting at a music venue. “Sad to write this or to never see you again.”

Barker continues, “I’ll never forget Laguna Beach days when I was a trash man playing in a punk rock band and you were playing with Alanis (Morissette). You’d come to watch me play in dive bars and be like, ‘Kid you’re a star,'” he continued. “And I thought you were crazy but you gave me so much hope and determination.”

Barker then wrote that he recalled their two bands touring together years later in Australia, and noted he has “the best memories of smoking cigarettes in the restroom of flights we were on together and watching your set every night.” “To say I’ll miss you my friend isn’t enough,” he concluded his post. “Till the next time, we talk drums and smoke in the boys’ room… Rest In Peace.”

However, Miley Cyrus took to her Instagram to pay homage to Hawkins, “My favorite memory with Taylor is dancing around his drum kit while he played along to this song (The Pretenders, ‘Brass in Pocket’) playing it on repeat imagining us laughing… Love forever.” The singer added in her Instagram Story post, “My show tomorrow is dedicated to Taylor Hawkins.” Cyrus made her comments the night before her March 26 concert in Brazil.
