At the distressingly young age of 50, Taylor Hawkins has died. I haven’t kept up with Foo Fighters much beyond their Wasting Light album; I saw them live on that tour in Buffalo with my brother Marty and my good friend Tom from high school. It was an electric show, thanks in no small part to Hawkins’s drumming.

Even though they no longer occupy a significant place in my musical landscape, I’ll always hold fond memories of the band, and especially jamming to their songs with Marty and Tom.
