Foo Fighters have paid tribute to Stephen Hawking after his shocking death.

The band tweeted, “Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet” – RIP Stephen Hawking you fucking legend.”

BBC reports that Stephen Hawking has died at the age of 76, his family has said.

The British physicist was known for his work with black holes and relativity, and wrote several popular science books including A Brief History of Time.

“We are deeply saddened that our beloved father passed away today,” a family statement said.

At the age of 22 Stephen Hawking was given only a few years to live after being diagnosed with a rare form of motor neurone disease.

The illness left him wheelchair-bound and largely unable to speak except through a voice synthesiser.

The family did not disclose the cause of death, but said he “died peacefully” at his home in Cambridge, England.

“We are deeply saddened that our beloved father passed away today. He was a great scientist and an extraordinary man whose work and legacy will live on for many years,” the family said in a statement.

“His courage and persistence with his brilliance and humor inspired people across the world. He once said, ‘It would not be much of a universe if it wasn’t home to the people you love.’ We will miss him forever,” it added.

He leaves behind a wife, Lucy, and two sons, Robert and Tim.

      Sad. I was a big Hawking fan. I stated this before but I have a tattoo of his equation of the entropy of a black hole on my forearm. I’m getting real sick of the comments on other sites saying Hawking will finally know there is a hell because he was Atheist. Well if you don’t believe in a place, you won’t go there. Like I will not go to another space system in my meat vessel because I’m not a Scientologist. Anyway RIP Stephen.

        When I pass, I hope that I am with both the cats and dogs in my life.

        And even more so, my dad.

        Doesn’t matter where it is.

        I just want to be with all of them.

        And yes, I have been seeing those comments too about Stephen.

        Whatever he believed in or didn’t believe in was his business.

        I just know that the world has lost an accomplished, intelligent, kind, funny, loving, and special person.

        And right now, the world is a bit less bright for it.
