It’s been a month since Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins died and little has been reported since.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers plan to honor Taylor Hawkins this weekend at the New Orleans Jazz Fest. The band is filling in for the Foo Fighters, who cancelled all tour dates after Hawkins’ death last month. The Chili Peppers – who are good friends with Hawkins and the Foos – told Billboard “It’s going to be a celebration”, and said they’d be bringing Hawkins’ wife Alison to the festival.
Drummer Chad Smith promised “We’re going to play our hearts out”. The Peppers will close out the third day of the festival on Sunday night. How should Hawkins be honored? Will RCHP cover a Foo Fighters song?
