Taylor Hawkins has been gone for what seems like a very long time, but the drummer’s legacy lives on in videos and photos. Recently, an Instagram page found a video of Taylor working out before Hawkins had passed. Check out the video below.
The Foo Fighters will continue as a band following the death of drummer Taylor Hawkins last year, although it will be a “different” group, they have said.
In a statement posted on Instagram at the weekend, the rock band called 2022 “the most difficult and tragic year” that they had known.
They said they were thankful for “the people that we love and cherish most, and for the loved ones who are no longer with us.”
The statement read: “(We) were formed 27 years ago to represent the healing power of music and a continuation of life,” the band wrote, adding that fans had built “a worldwide community, a devoted support system that has helped us all get through the darkest of times together.”
In this latest post, they paid tribute to their former drummer, saying: “Without Taylor, we never would have become the band that we were – and without Taylor, we know that we’re going to be a different band going forward.”
“He’ll be there in spirit with all of us every night,” they added.
Many fans have wanted Hawkins son to join the band, but that does not seem like it will be a full time deal. There may be shows here and there, but it just not seem feasible for the long term.
The Foo Fighters held a second tribute in Los Angeles later that month.
