    For me, Taylor played exactly what needed to be played and made it memorable. Simple or complex, he served the music across a very broad creative range.

    • A Loco Cucco, yo
      A Loco Cucco, yo Рік тому +5

      I've started thinking about that too. Sometimes, I liken him to Ringo Starr of a different generation: not the greatest or the most technical drummer, but very much so serves the music better than most.

    • Tristan J. Cumpole
      Tristan J. Cumpole Рік тому

      @A Loco Cucco, yo Ringo is a complete edge case for so many reasons. Still there's so many examples of each the most people would recognise in isolation. That's an increasingly-rare thing to be able to say these days.

      You pretty much nailed it. He wasnt the most "complex" drummer but everything he played had a meaning and feeling to it.

    Taylor was super-underrated. He COULD actually pull off some Neil Peart-type grooves when called upon but it wasn't what was needed in the Foos and he understood that so well. Still, he knew how to craft memorable drum parts without going over the top. Great tribute, man!
    Edit: BTW, the drum break in Rope in one of the greatest of all-time.

    Taylor really was one of those drummers who knew exactly how he should write the drums for a specific song. Always perfect. We'll miss him everyday. Amazing tribute ❤️

      The song itself it's not that complex
      BUT IT'S SO HARD to make it sound fluid and the way it should sound like!
      Those accents and ghost notes really make it really difficult at the same time, plus those fills on the breakdown with the cowbell and all.
      It's my favourite song from the Foo, lookin forward to see your cover, you got this man!

    • drummersarus

    Kind of makes me feel bad that I've never been a Foo Fighters fan even though I love Dave Grohl it's always been for his work as a drummer not as a singer I didn't know how good Taylor Hawkins was

    • VGA Port Authority
      VGA Port Authority Рік тому +12

      If you like Grohl's playing, you might like Taylor's drumming as well, they're both really powerful drummers with a lot of heft.

    • G60syncro
      G60syncro Рік тому +1

      @Neal P. I think Dave is a smart guy. Taylor had a similar vibe he had but with more virtuosity. Dave had the Nirvana fame calling card to get his thing off the ground but he was humble enough to let Taylor do his thing. And in every interview you see either one or both of them it's clear they had become really close! I feel sorry for Dave, first loosing Kurt and now Taylor, it must be hard!!
      My friends were trying so hard to see them during the pandemic but nothing panned out... I stayed out of the loop thinking I'll have a chance to see them once this thing blows over.. I guess that won't pan out either!

    • NegaArson

  • Christian Easley

    This is also a huge compliment to Dave-- because Taylor had to play his guitar riffs -- doing drums like this-- that’s how hard the music is, that Dave came up with on his guitar!!!! GOOD GOD, MAN!!!!!

    I have to add Aurora to this list as Taylor said in interviews that it was the song that made him feel proud of his contribution to the band. It may not catch you with fancy beat but you can tell Dave & Taylor were locked in to some other realm, building to the crescendo. My thanks Samus for this awesome tribute!

  • Claude Vi'Eaul

    RIP Taylor!!! 😭
    And condolences to the FF family...
    I had the impression Taylor was fully aware of who was looking over his shoulder in the Foos 😜 and had made his peace with that *long* ago.
    He could definitely hold his own, had a great combination of groove, intensity and energy, as well as forming a solid rhythm section with Nate - forming the pulsing backbone / engineroom of the band, and he did that for years.
    Aside from his family obviously, no-one misses him more than the remaining Foos.
    A great musician, a wicked sense of humour, and by all accounts just a genuinely nice guy.

    Taylor inspired so many (including me) to play. He was probably the most underrated drummer of all time. People used to ask him what it felt like playing with the best drummer of the 90s (referring to Dave), when they should have been asking dave how it felt to be in a band with God

  • Paul Holmes
    Paul Holmes Рік тому

    Nice tribute Man. We're all feeling the loss of Taylor. Can only imagine what his family and bandmates must be going through. Their lives will never be the same. I wonder if the Foo Fighters will go on. I doubt it. Pretty tough to replace someone you played with for 26 years. Its all the pieces of the band comming together that make it great. Anyway he leaves behind a great legacy of music for us all to remember him by. RIP Taylor

    Sam, just letting you know that as of late I haven't been able to hear your cymbals that well on the mix. I don't know if it is a problem with my headphones, but for a while now that I've been struggling to actually identify some of the cymbals (mainly the crashes and splashes).
    Other than that, the content is godlike, as you got us used to. Great tribute and compilation. I'm sure Taylor would be happy to know that he has touched so many different drummers with so many different drumming styles.
    Much love from Portugal, man 🤘🏼
