Watch: 100 Drummers Cover Of Foo Fighters’ ‘My Hero’ to Tribute Taylor Hawkins

Published on:

The passing of storied Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins has left an indelible mark on the music community at large. Heralded as one of the best rock musicians of the modern era, shoes his size can never be filled. It’s a sentiment the band understands full well, saying in a statement from New Years Eve 2022:


Foo Fighters were formed 27 years ago to represent the healing power of music and a continuation of life. And for the past 27 years our fans have built a worldwide community, a devoted support system that has helped us all get through the darkest of times together. A place to share our joy and our pain, our hopes and fears, and to join in a chorus of life together through music. 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.

“We also know that you, the fans, meant as much to Taylor as he meant to you. And we know that when we see you again – and we will soon – he’ll be there in spirit with all of us every night.”

Paying tribute to Hawkins around the anniversary of his death, Studio Brussel and the Belgian rock band Black Box Revelation have orchestrated a stunning 100-drummer rendition of the Foo Fighters classic, “My Hero.” The colossal musical undertaking occurred at Sportpaleis Antwerp, the last Belgian venue Foo Fighters played before Hawkins’ death.


In a statement, Black Box Revelation commented “Taylor Hawkins was the best drummer of our times. “Honoring him with this tribute was an experience we will never forget.”


Gino Kesteloot, one of the many participants, added: “It’s the first time I played together with 100 other drummers. It sounded great, I even got goosebumps all over my body! Wonderful to honor our hero this way.”


Foo Fighters have announced a handful of upcoming concerts. No word yet on who will be playing drums.


5/24 – Gilford, NH – Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion

6/14 – Rogers, AR – Walmart AMP

6/16 – Pelham, AL – Oak Mountain Amphitheatre
