Dave Grohl pays tribute to Foo Fighters’ Taylor Hawkins at Wembley concert

Dave Grohl paid an emotional tribute to his late friend and Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins at a star-studded tribute concert at Wembley Stadium.

Speaking at the event in London on Saturday, he said: “Taylor loved to jam and record with anybody and everybody. 

He loved to play music every day. And there aren’t too many people that he’s never jammed with.

“So this collection of friends and family and musicians, this is all brought together by him and we’re all connected here today by that one guy.”

The concert in memory of Hawkins, who died in March aged 50, included the first live set in 12 years of Them Crooked Vultures

the supergroup of Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme, Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl, and Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones – as well as performances by Nile Rodgers, the Pretenders, Kesha and Supergrass.

“He loved music. He loved playing. He loved the Foo Fighters. Tonight we are honouring his memory. So make a noise because he would love that.”

Sir Elton’s message was followed by a rendition of Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, performed by Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme.
