On Friday night, the Foo Fighters released a statement via Twitter announcing Hawkins' death.
"The Foo Fighters family is devastated by the tragic and untimely loss of our beloved Taylor Hawkins," the statement reads. "His musical spirit and infectious laughter will live on with us forever."
"Our hearts go out to his wife, children and family," they continue, "and we ask that their privacy be treated with the utmost respect in this unimaginably difficult time."
