Middle Child by Taylor Hawkins & The Coattail Riders is today’s featured song.

On this day in 2022, fans around the globe were stunned to learn of the sudden death of Taylor Hawkins, the Foo Fighters’s charismatic drummer. The 50-year-old musician, who had complained of chest pains, was in Bogotá, Colombia for the Estéreo Picnic festival, where he and his bandmates were due to perform that evening. Originally from Texas, Hawkins drummed for Canadian singers Sass Jordan and Alanis Morrissette before joining Foo Fighters in 1997. The high-energy artist appeared on eight of the band’s albums between 1999 and 2021 and in the years immediately preceding his death, played on records by Miley Cyrus, Elton John, and Ozzy Osbourne. Hawkins also cut three albums leading his own group, Taylor Hawkins and the Coattail Riders.
