She continued, “As Taylor’s wife, and on behalf of our children, I want to share how much you meant to him and how dedicated he was to ‘knocking your socks off’ during every performance. Taylor was honored to be part of the Foo Fighters and valued his dream role in the band every minute of his 25 years with them. We considered every band member and the extended Foo Fighters team our family.”
She finished up by saying, “Taylor’s endearing spirit and deep love of music will live on forever through the collaborations he so enjoyed having with other musicians and the catalog of songs her contributed to and created. In celebration of his life, it is now up to all of us who loved him most to honor Taylor’s legacy and the music he gave us. Thank you all again for your love and sympathy. Taylor loved all of you and we love you too.”
There will be shows honoring him this year and the first will be on September 3 at London’s Wembley Stadium and the second will be in Los Angeles at the Kia Forum on September 27. His fans from all over the world have been mourning him since March and his death was unexpected and tragic.
