Alison Hawkins, Hawkins’ wife, wrote a statement on her personal profiles on June 8th.
“As a wife, and taking care of our children, I want to share how much you guys meant to him and how dedicated he was to “exciting everyone too much” during his shows. Taylor was honored to be a part of the Foo Fighters and treasured every minute of that dream of being in the band for the 25 years he was in it. We have affection for each member and we understand Foo Fighters as a family.“, said.
Hawkins died on March 25 while the band was on tour in Colombia; no official cause of death has been announced.
