Pink Floyd Drummer Nick Mason Pays Tribute To Taylor Hawkins
Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason recently joined among many rockstars who pay tribute to the talented Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins who passed away in Columbia. Mason stated how sad it is to lose another fantastic drummer in his new Twitter post.
The world was shocked to hear about the sudden death of Taylor Hawkins recently in Columbia, where he went with his band to perform for their fans. Hawkins’ certain cause of death is still not officially determined, but the authorities believe the drummer was under the influence of a cocktail of drugs, and his heart couldn’t take it.
According to the Columbian authorities, an emergency call from his hotel was made after Hawkins contacted the front desk to ask for help because he was having chest pain. Although the death doesn’t seem like an overdose but rather a heart attack, the investigation around the drugs found in his room continues.
His death was sudden and surprising, primarily because the musician was very young and looking healthy on the road with his band. The entire rock and roll world is dressed in grief and pays their tributes, sharing their memories with the loved drummer. Most recently, Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason shared his tribute on his Twitter account.
He expressed how sad it was to lose another drummer and revealed that Hawkins would send him his mixes and versions of Pink Floyd songs. Mason still ‘treasures’ those records he left behind for him and wishes ‘condolences’ to his bandmates Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel, Pat Smear, Chris Shiflett, Rami Jaffee, and his family.
Here is what Mason said about Hawkins’ passing:
“Nick Mason pays tribute to Taylor Hawkins:
So sad to lose another wonderful drummer. I still treasure some mixes that he sent me of his own interpretation of some Pink Floyd songs. Condolences to the band and his family.”
