Late Foo Fighter's Drummer Taylor Hawkins' Son Shane Slays On Drums During Tribute Concert

Oliver Shane Hawkins, the son of late Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins, just sat in with his father's band.
During a tribute concert for the late musician, frontman Dave Grohl introduced the 16-year-old drummer, telling the audience, "I don't think I've ever seen anyone hit the drums as hard as this person. But beyond that, he's a member of our family."

During a moving rendition of the song "My Hero," Shane rocked out with a ton of intensity, resembling his dad in a big way as he played. While the show was celebrity-clad, Shane was absolutely the star of the night.

For Shane, it had to be an incredible night. He got to play before a massive audience. Other musicians like Elton John, Liam Gallagher, and Paul McCartney were at the London show to honor Taylor Hawkins.

During the incredible performance, photos of Shane and his dad were displayed behind the band on a big screen. While it was definitely the biggest audience the teen has played in front of, it wasn't the first time he honored his dad with the song. In July, he played the same jam with a local band called The Alive at a show in Laguna Beach. The clip went mega viral.

Dave Grohl, who lost his bandmate and best friend when Hawkins died on March 25, was overcome with emotion at several points during the tribute show. As the band performed the song "Times Like These," the singer had to stop and take a moment to cry. The audience cheered for him, showing their support.

Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins had a famously special bond. Dave wrote about it in his memoir, The Storyteller. "Upon first meeting, our bond was immediate, and we grew closer with every day, every song, every note that we played together," he wrote. "I am not afraid to say that our chance meeting was a kind of love at first sight, igniting a musical 'twin flame' that still burns to this day."

He continued, "Together, we have become an unstoppable duo, onstage and off, in pursuit of any and all adventure we can find. We are absolutely meant to be, and I am grateful that we found each other in this lifetime."
