Taylor Hawkins: Grammys Pay Tribute to Late Drummer as Foo Fighters Win 3 Awards

by at .

The Foo Fighters have been a fixture at the Grammys for nearly 25 years.

But at Sunday night's ceremony, the beloved band was not present to collect their trophies for Best Rock Performance, Best Rock Song, and Best Rock Album.

The reason for their absence, of course, was the death of Taylor Hawkins.

The drummer passed away last month while the band was on tour in Colombia.

While the cause of Hawkins' death remains uncertain, investigators say they found at least 10 illicit substances in his bloodstream, including opioids and alcohol.

Grammys host Trevor Noah paused to pay tribute to Hawkins during last night's broadcast.

"This was the moment in the show when I was supposed to be introducing the Foo Fighters," he told the audience.

"We would have been celebrating with them as they won three Grammy awards earlier today. But they are of course not here because of the tragic passing of their legendary drummer Taylor Hawkins," he continued.

"Our thoughts go out to Taylor's family, his friends, the Foo Fighter family and all of their fans around the globe. We'd like to take a moment now to remember Taylor."

Several artists paid tribute to Hawkins throughout the night, including Billie Eilish who wore a t-shirt emblazoned with Hawkins' likeness during her performance.
