Foo Fighters Will Continue As ‘Different Band’ After The Loss Of Taylor Hawkins

Well, Peoria Rock Fans, despite the tragic year that the Foo Fighters endured with the loss of their Brother and drummer Taylor Hawkins, the band has vowed to carry on, despite obvious changes forthcoming. The band made an announcement on New Year’s Day via Instagram:

“As we say goodbye to the most difficult and tragic year that our band has ever known, we are reminded of how thankful we are for the people that we love and cherish most, and for the loved ones who are no longer with us. 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.”

So, there you have it. For us Peoria Rock fans, the Foo’s have always been an important band for us, here’s to their efforts in 2023 and beyond. We wish you the best!
