Hawkins died on March 2022 in Colombia when the band was on tour. In the wake of his passing, Foo Fighters put on two tribute events, in London and Los Angeles. At the end of last year, the band penned a fan message about the group’s “most difficult and tragic year.”

“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,” the letter read. “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.”
