Death of Foo Fighter and LGBTQ+ ally Taylor Hawkins was drug related

The rock world is in mourning for the death of Foo Fighters legend Taylor Hawkins aged just 50. Sadly his death is now thought to be drug related as up to ten different substances have been identified in the autopsy report. 

 

Lead singer Dave Grohl and the rest of the band are understandably devastated, saying in a statement: “His musical spirit and infectious laughter will live with us forever. Our hearts go out to his wife, children, and family, and we ask that their privacy be treated with the utmost respect in this unimaginably difficult time.”

 

Taylor was found in a luxury hotel in the Colombian capital of Bogota where the band were currently touring. They have cancelled the South American leg of their tour. 

 

The Foo Fighters are vocal advocates for LGBTQ+ rights having a long running feud with the horrendous Westboro Baptist Church, having trolled the on many an occasion. 

 

As the tabloids report on the ‘gory details’ which we don’t think are really appropriate to discuss here, it’s more important to understand the effects of drug addiction and accidental overdose on someone’s life, friends and family. He was an incredible talent.
