The loss of drummer Taylor Hawkins in 2022 will have a lasting impact on the Foo Fighters.

“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,” writes the band in a statement.

“We know that when we see you again — and we will soon — he (Hawkins) will be there in spirit with all of us every night.”

Hawkins was in the Foo Fighters for 25 years before his passing. No cause of death was announced, although a toxicology report showed traces of ten substances in his body.

Hawkins’ death hit Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl particularly hard since he, as Nirvana’s drummer, had to deal with the 1994 suicide of Kurt Cobain.
