The music world is still mourning the death of Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins. 

Performed on March 20th at Lollapalooza Argentina at the Hipódromo de San Isidro in San Isidro. Hawkins exchanged places with Grohl and delivered a wonderful performance of Queen’s “Somebody To Love”

Grohl and Hawkins exchanged onstage before Hawkins take on the mic: “You know, the best thing about Taylor Hawkins — he’s the best drummer in the world, we love him so fucking much,” Dave says in pro-shot video before a big reveal of Hawkins’ gloriously Eighties-metal spandex pants. The two embrace and switch places, and Hawkins tells the crowd: “I fuckin’ love Dave Grohl, man. I’d be delivering pizzas if it wasn’t for Dave Grohl. I’d be managing the drum department at a Guitar Center if it wasn’t for Dave Grohl.” which made this final show even more bittersweet.

After many tributes by fans, friends and fellow musicians, this video is probably his greatest memorial.
