I should consider myself a lucky man, having had the pleasure of attending a couple of Foo Fighter concerts in my life. Hyde Park stands out as a memorable gig, and my first time in the new Wembley was to hear the band thrash it out for a couple of hours.
I think what makes the death of Taylor Hawkins so much sadder than it already is, is that he had – and the band still have – so much more to say and do. They are still writing, still developing and still touring.
Thank you Mr Hawkins for sharing your passion with the world. A true legend.
