I'm still processing this. The whole situation, just so sad

Foo Fighters have cancelled all remaining tour dates. I definitely think the future of the band is seriously in question, which I understand entirely, Taylor ended up meaning so much more than just a drummer to those guys 💔

If there's one silver lining in all of this, it's that Taylor got to literally live his dream in the tragically short life he had.
Seeing him perform in person as I did in 2018 was a real privilege
