Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins passed away on Friday night.

He was 50 years old. No cause of death was disclosed.

Wolfgang Van Halen paid tribute to him in a thoughtful Twitter post.

He met Taylor on tour in San Diego in 2012.

Van Halen just began touring with Tremonti in 2012.

He was the bassist for rock band Van Halen from 2006 to 2020.

He said that Taylor was “such a ridiculously kind man.”

“The dude just emanated cool,” he said.

He called Taylor’s death “a kick in the gut.”
