Last night, a friend texted me about Taylor Hawkins of the Foo Fighters, who passed away at 50 just hours before a concert the band was going to start in Colombia. After months of listening to the Foo Fighters, my friend and I picked up tickets for their show in East Rutherford, NJ and it was incredibly awesome. When the Foo Fighters returned to New York to play in Madison Square Garden, we joined them there, too.
I’m still in a bit of shock over it, though I understand. It’s Life. The next day just isn’t guaranteed, and it makes these moments we do have important. I decided to share Cold Day in the Sun, which was a track sung by Hawkins during the Skin and Bones tour. It’s a great little song and also showcases some of the fun Hawkins had with Dave Grohl and the band. He’ll be missed.
