Hawkins’ 16-year-old son leaves fans speechless

In March Taylor Hawkins, drummer of the cult band Foo Fighters, is found dead in a hotel room. Shock and sadness run deep. After months of silence, the band returns to the stage with a huge memorial concert – but the star of the evening isn’t Dave Grohl.

A performance by the 16-year-old son of drummer Taylor Hawkins at a tribute concert by the American rock band Foo Fighters caused euphoria among fans. During the six-hour show at London’s Wembley Stadium, the teenager took the place reserved for his father before his sudden death in March and performed the song “My Hero.” 75,000 people in the audience – and countless other viewers on the streaming service Paramount + and on YouTube were thrilled.

Shane Hawkins “performed a cathartic performance with anger, sadness and ambition in arms and legs that left even the old hands speechless,” wrote the magazine Rolling Stone of the youngster’s performance. There was also an enthusiastic response on Twitter to a video of Hawkins playing drums. “Damn, I’m crying,” wrote one fan. Another commented: “Taylor will look down on him, smile, nod and know that he raised a wonderful child.”

In addition to the Foo Fighters around frontman Dave Grohl, who broke his voice during the performance of “Times Like These”, a host of other rock greats attended the concert – including Stewart Copeland, Roger Taylor, Travis Barker, Omar Hakim and “Oasis” singers Liam Gallagher. On September 27, there will be another concert in memory of the late Hawkins in Los Angeles.

Taylor Hawkins was found dead on March 25 at the Hotel Four Seasons in Bogotá. Shortly afterwards, Colombian police went out with details of a toxicology test. This “preliminarily revealed ten different types of substances,” including THC — which is found in marijuana, tricyclic antidepressants, benzodiazepines and opioids. They did not say whether the drugs led to the musician’s death.

After the death of their drummer, the American rock band not only canceled a scheduled performance at this year’s Grammy Awards, but also prematurely ended their major concert tour. By the end of the year, the Foo Fighters had originally planned more than 50 appearances in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Europe.
