Unfortunately, we lost Taylor Hawkins this year who is also a Foo Fighters drummer. Foo Fighters are an American rock band that formed in Seattle in the USA in 1994. Foo Fighters was initially formed as a solo project by former Nirvana guitarist Dave Grohl. We will help you in finding tickets and check out any upcoming Foo Fighters concerts and shows in 2022!
After an album that was a huge success, the debut album Foo Fighters, Grohl (lead vocals and guitar) was joined to band comprised of Nate Mandel (bass guitar), William Goldsmith (drums), and Pat Smear (guitar). After a string of lineup changes and departures from the Goldsmith and Smear group formed its main group in 1999, which consisted of Grohl, Mandel, Chris Shiflett (guitar) as well as Taylor Hawkins (drums). In 2005, Smear was back in the group and in the year 2017 Rami Jaffee joined the band playing piano and keyboards. We are too sad to lose great drummer Taylor Hawkins this year. He died on March 25th, 2022 in his room at the Casa Medina hotel in Bogotá, Colombia. There is no cause of death was given by doctors.

His family also wrote this statement after Taylor Hawkins die:
“My deepest thanks and admiration go out to the global Foo Fighters community and Taylor’s fans far and wide for the outpouring of love each and every one of you have shown our beloved Taylor. Your kindness has been an invaluable comfort for my family and me during this time of unimaginable grief. As Taylor’s wife, and on behalf of our children, I want to share how much you meant to him and how dedicated he was to “knocking your socks off” during every performance. Taylor was honored to be a part of the Foo Fighters and valued his dream role in the band every minute of his 25 years with them. We consider every band member and the extended Foo Fighters team our family.
Taylor’s endearing spirit and deep love of music will live on forever through the collaborations he so enjoyed having with other musicians and the catalog of songs he contributed to and created.
In celebration of his life, it is now up to all of us who loved him most to honor Taylor’s legacy and the music he gave us. Thank you all again for your love and sympathy. Taylor loved all of you & we love you too.
After that, Foo Fighters shared a statement on Twitter about and canceled the upcoming tour: “We’re sorry for and share in the disappointment that we won’t be seeing one another as planned. Instead, let’s take this time to grieve, heal, pull our loved ones close, and appreciate all the music and memories we’ve made together. With love, Foo Fighters.”
