We are shocked and saddened to report Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins has died. He was 50-years-old. The band issued the following statement on social media:
“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. Our hearts go out to his wife, children and family, and we ask that their privacy be treated with the utmost respect in this unimaginably difficult time.”
According to Semana in Colombia, Hawkins was reportedly found dead in a hotel room in Bogata, Colombia, ahead of the group’s scheduled performance at Festival Estéreo Picnic.
