Sad news this morning... Silent Cry

https://news.sky.com/story/taylor-hawkins-foo-fighters-drummer-has-died-band-announces-12575267

Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins has died aged 50, the band has announced.

The US group - one of the most successful rock bands of the last three decades - said they were "devastated".

"The Foo Fighters family is devastated by the tragic and untimely loss of our beloved Taylor Hawkins," the band tweeted.

"His musical spirit and infectious laughter will live on with all of us forever.

"Our hearts go out to his wife, children and family, and we ask that their privacy be treated with the utmost respect in this unimaginably difficult time."

The drummer's final performance was at the Lollapalooza festival in Argentina on 20 March, according to Rolling Stone, where he sang the lead on a cover of Queen's Somebody to Love.

His last song was an encore of Everlong.

Tributes flood for the 'amazing musician':

Kiss's Gene Simmons said he was "shocked and saddened", while the Smashing Pumpkins tweeted their "deepest sympathies to Taylor's family, his fans, and of course his band".

Billy Idol shared a picture of Hawkins on Twitter and wrote: "So tragic".

US rock band Nickelback said they were in "utter disbelief" at the news of the drummer's death, while Guns N' Roses tweeted a selection of pictures of Hawkins with the caption "forever missed".

Awful news. Always liked his drumming and enthusiasm.
