The Los Angeles Taylor Hawkins tribute happening tonight and Heart’s founding member Nancy Wilson is sharing a new song. “Amigo Amiga,” is a tribute to late Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins. Wilson says she began writing the tune the night of Hawkins’ passing, and named it based on nicknames the two gave each other. Wilson talked about the song saying, “I heard myself in tears saying ‘too soon too soon’ which became a refrain in the song, I spent quite a few sleepless nights trying to express it all. He was a wonderful friend and we always had funny pet names for each other like ‘Amigo’ and ‘Amiga’ as well as ‘Luv’ and ‘Dahling.’”
She also talked about the state of rock following his death explaining, “It is such a painful loss — but it also feels like Taylor has galvanized and re-energized rock ‘n’ roll with so many of his musician friends and fans coming together. It’s a new renaissance Taylor and the Foo family have gifted us all.”
What performance are you most looking forward to at the next Taylor tribute?
