“Without Taylor, we know that we’re going to be a different band going forward.”
Foo Fighters fans and the entire rock music world could only spend most of 2022 guessing what decision Dave Grohl and Foo Fighters might make about their future. They answered our questions just a few hours before we flipped the page to 2023. Read the band’s thoughtful statement below.
Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins died March 25, 2022 in Bogota, Colombia just ahead of a festival headlining set. He was just 50 years old. In September, the band threw a pair of star-studded Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concerts in his honor – one in London and one in Los Angeles.
Becoming Foo Fighters’ next drummer is a tall order. That person has Taylor’s shoes to fill and Dave Grohl’s standards to meet. We’re always gonna miss Taylor, but we’re relieved Foo Fighters will continue on.
