Son of the Late Taylor Hawkins: Paid Tribute to His Father by Playing the Drums

According to Today.com, thousands of mourners attended the first of two memorial performances for the late Taylor Hawkins on Saturday at London’s Wembley Stadium.

Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins committed suicide in March and his body was discovered in Bogotá, Colombia.

Hawkins’ son Shane, then 16 years old, joined the band for one of its biggest hits, “My Hero,” replacing his father on drums. The show drew hundreds of superstars, including Brian May and Roger Taylor of Queen, Liam Gallagher, Mark Ronson, and Dave Chappelle.

Shane gave an enthusiastic performance with his father’s longtime bandmates, and a video of the performance was uploaded on Twitter. At the end of the song, Shane played a drum solo while lead singer Dave Grohl beamed with delight.

Social media users praised Grohl’s performance, with one noting the “absolute joy and contentment” on his face.

A 16-year-old named Shane Hawkins “delivered the most unbelievable performance on drums of ‘My Hero’ at his own Dad’s memorial concert at Wembley,” as one Twitter user put it. “How the heck did he keep it together? One of the saddest times in rock music.

On Some Occasions, His Tears Spilled

A second admirer wrote the teenager a heartfelt letter, in which they said, “Some very amazing kids but I think Shane Hawkins just shone brightest. That’s some serious talent if you can pull that off during a tribute performance for your dad in front of 90,000. Incredible.”

Grohl’s daughter Violet, who is 16 years old at the time, also performed, covering songs by Jeff Buckley and The Zutons, including “Last Goodbye” and “Grace.”

Later in the evening, while performing the Foo Fighters’ signature hit “Times Like These,” Grohl, who had accompanied many of the other performers along with the rest of the band, was overcome with emotion and had to stop singing.

On multiple occasions, he had tears streaming down his face. He took a moment before the song’s more poignant lines to collect his thoughts.

Foo Fighters have canceled their upcoming tour dates following the death of Taylor Hawkins at a festival in Colombia.

The band expressed their regret and displeasure about not being able to perform at another venue as scheduled in an Instagram post. “Instead, let’s use this period to mourn, to heal, to draw our loved ones close, and to cherish the many songs we’ve shared and the many memories we’ve formed together,” the author writes.

Several months later, Alison Hawkins, Hawkins’ wife, took to social media to express gratitude to supporters.

Alison Hawkins, the mother of the late drummer’s three children, commented, “In celebration of his life, it is now up to those of us who loved him best to commemorate Taylor’s legacy and the music he gave us.” Once again, I appreciate everyone’s kindness and support. Taylor adored every one of you, and we return the sentiment.

Foo Fighters announced both dates in June, calling him “our dear friend, our bad— bandmate, our cherished brother” in a series of social media posts.

The Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concerts “will join several of those musicians, the Hawkins family, and of course his Foo Fighters brothers in celebration of Taylor’s memory and legacy as a global rock icon,” according to a statement on the band’s website. The concert profits will go to organizations like Music Support and MusiCares.

Performers including Travis Barker, Alanis Morissette, Gene Simmons, and Wolfgang Van Halen will be on hand for a second tribute performance on September 27 at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles. For more updates And information you can visit our website TheActiveNews.Com.
