Foo Fighters’ Taylor Hawkins told friends he ‘couldn’t f – -king do it anymore’
Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins was at his wit’s end before his death at 50 in March,
multiple friends told Rolling Stone in a new investigative piece published Monday.
Reporters at the rock bible said they interviewed 20 of Hawkins’ friends in the month and a half since his death.
His family members and Foo Fighters bandmates declined to be interviewed,
but the band’s management said: “They dispute Hawkins’ friends’ characterizations of how he was feeling.”
However, according to friends, Hawkins was concerned about the band’s
igorous touring schedule and didn’t know if he could physically handle playing three-hour shows night after night.
They allege that he questioned if he could continue on as a full-time member of the band.
