An emotional Dave Grohl led a star-studded tribute to late Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins on the group’s first present since his dying.
On Sept. 3, the singer started the live-streamed charity live performance by standing onstage with their band mates to welcome the group at a packed Wembley Stadium in London, as they chanted, “Taylor, Taylor!”
Along with his voice wavering, Grohl advised them, “Girls and gentleman, tonight, we’re gathered right here to have fun the life, the music and the love of our pricey buddy, our band mate, our brother, Taylor Hawkins. For these of you who knew him personally, that nobody else may make you smile, or chuckle, or dance, or sing like he may. And for these of those who admired him from afar, I am positive you’ve got all felt the identical factor.”
On the present, Foo Fighters carried out lots of their hits. Throughout their efficiency of “Occasions Like These,” Dave grew to become overcome with emotion, pausing for a number of seconds to wipe away tears and take a number of breaths earlier than persevering with the tune.
