On March 25, Taylor Hawkins deeply saddened Foo Fighters and their fans with his unexpected death. On the night of his death, he was going to perform with the band at the Estéreo Picnic Festival for their ongoing South American tour. However, the drummer was found dead in the hotel he stayed at before the show.
Following the tragic news, Foo Fighters announced via Twitter to share it with fans and the music scene. Later on, Hawkins’ fellow musicians have paid tribute to him on their social media accounts. Among others like Ozzy Osbourne, Brian May, Travis Barker, Lars Ulrich, and Tommy Lee, Stevie Nicks wanted to pay an emotional tribute to the drummer.
In a tweet she recently posted, Stevie Nicks shared two pictures of Hawkins and her, along with an open letter and a touching poem written for Hawkins. In the letter, she revealed that these pictures were taken in a photo booth in the Foo Fighters studio, and she is glad that she has photographs with Hawkins at her fingertips.
Moreover, Nicks said Hawkins always came to her shows and recalled when she, Hawkins, and the Foo Fighters recorded a great version of ‘Gold Dust Woman.’ Saying this version was the best one ever, Nicks continued praising Hawkins by saying he had a huge heart and a glorious smile.
Stevie Nicks’ open letter to Taylor Hawkins read:
“I just have to say,
Thank goodness for the photo booth in the Foo Fighters studio. Because of these pictures, my friendship with Taylor will always be at my fingertips. He always came to my shows. He and his best friend Dave even let me be a Foo Fighter for a little while. We recorded a kick-ass version of ‘Gold Dust Woman,’ and at the end of the song, I yelled out ”Best Gold Dust Woman’ ever.’ And I meant it.
Taylor was very handsome, and he was very cute. Sometimes that combination is way better than ‘beautiful.’ I think it’s everything. He had a huge heart and a glorious smile. When he walked into the room, everyone looked up. When he left the room, everyone was sad…”
