Taylor Hawkins passed away at 50 years old on March 25th. Hawkins was found dead in a hotel room at the Casa Medina in Bogota.

Oliver Taylor Hawkins was born February 17th, 1972. Prior to joining the Foo Fighters, from June of 1995 to March of 1997, Hawkins was the drummer for Alanis Morissette on her tours supporting Jagged Little Pill, as well as her Can’t Not tour. Hawkins joined the Foo Fighters in time to be part of their third studio album, 1999’s There Is Nothing Left to Lose. As the Foo Fighters drummer, Hawkins provided his talent and skills to the band’s seven following studio albums.

Along with many artists reaching out to share their condolences with Hawkins’ loved ones and express their love for the drummer, Hawkins was honored during the Grammys last night. A group of fans also recently hosted a drum circle to honor the late Foo Fighters drummer.
