Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins shockingly passed away at the age of 50. The band was due to play on the same day of his death. The Foos were scheduled to play at the Festival Estereo Picnic in Bogota, Colombia. This led to the band canceling the rest of their South American tour. Recently,a video clip surfaced on the internet which saw Red Hot Chili Peppers paying subtle tribute to Hawkins. Foo Fighters fans are thrilled after the band frontman Dave Grohl’s daughter, Violet Grohl made announcement about the tribute concert.
