Taylor Hawkins Tribute in LA

Tuesday night’s (September 27th) star-studded Taylor Hawkins tribute at L.A.’s Kia Forum once again featured the late-drummer’s heroes, friends, and fans performing the songs by the artists that meant the most to him. Loudwire posted the night’s setlist and, like the previous Wembley Stadium show, the amount of sheer talent gracing the stage alongside Dave Grohl and his Foo Fighters bandmates was fitting for one of rock’s most beloved modern drummers.

With Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters acting as the night’s house band, the show featured performances by Rush, the Police‘s Stewart CopelandQueenTaylor Hawkins‘ son Shane Hawkins, Dave Grohl’s daughter Violet GrohlJoan Jett with Blink 182‘s Travis Barker, the Darkness Justin TaylorRed Hot Chili Pepper‘s Chad SmithKeshaLevel 42‘s Mark KingDef Leppard‘s Joe Elliott and Phil CollenYes Jon DavisonAlanis MorissetteNirvana‘s Krist NovoselicWolfgang Van Halen, the Cars‘ Elliot Easton, former-Skid Row frontman Sebastian BachBlack Sabbath‘s Geezer ButlerMetallica‘s Lars UlrichMiley Cyrus, Heart‘s Nancy WilsonPink, Joe Walsh reunited with the James GangMotley Crue‘s Nikki Sixx and Tommy LeeMark RonsonThem Crooked VulturesTaylor Momsen, actor Jack Black, comedian Dave Chapelle and more.

A while back we spoke with the late, great Taylor Hawkins and he remained awestruck at how many musical doors had been opened over the years for the group’s members: [“We call it the ‘Foo Fighters Rock N’ Roll Fantasy Camp,’ ’cause after Dave has been doing the thing with John Paul Jones, and I’ve done things with Queen, got to do a Dennis Wilson thing, got to jam with (Yes bassist) Chris Squire, Rush, it’s like we just get to all kind of all fulfill a lot of our sort of rock n’ roll fantasies playing with these people, y’know? And it’s really amazing and really cool.”] SOUNDCUE (:19 OC: . . . and really cool)|

TL; DR

  • Tuesday night’s (September 27th) star-studded Taylor Hawkins tribute at L.A.’s Kia Forum once again featured the last drummers, heroes, friends, and fans performing the songs by the artists that meant the most to him.
