The teen has performed numerous times with the Foo Fighters’ frontman, 53 over the years. This included at Lollapalooza in 2021. At the time, Dave described his eldest daughter as “the most bad-ass person I know in my life.”

Following the death of Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters drummer), the former Nirvana drummer was unable to attend Saturday’s memorial service.

On March 25, the band members confirmed that the Texas native was dead at 50. “The Foo Fighters family is devastated by the tragic and untimely loss of our beloved Taylor Hawkins,” the group wrote in a Twitter statement at the time. “His musical spirit and infectious laughter will live on with all of us forever. Our hearts go out to his wife, children and family, and we ask that their privacy be treated with the utmost respect in this unimaginably difficult time.”

Hawkins, who was survived by his wife Alison Hawkins and children Oliver, Annabelle and Everleigh, was on tour with the Foo Fighters in Bogotá, Colombia, when he allegedly suffered from chest pain. Although an ambulance was dispatched to the scene by the Coattail Riders member Taylor Hawkins, the Taylor Hawkins musician was not responding and was declared dead.

Two days after his untimely death, Colombian authorities revealed in a statement that a preliminary toxicology test indicated the presence of 10 different substances in Hawkins’ system, including marijuana, tricyclic antidepressants, benzodiazepines and opioids. An investigation is ongoing.

In the wake of Hawkins’ death, the Foo Fighters have canceled several of their scheduled performances, including one at the 2022 Grammy Awards.

“It is with great sadness that Foo Fighters confirm the cancellation of all upcoming tour dates in light of the staggering loss of our brother Taylor Hawkins,” the band said in a statement shared via their official Twitter account on March 29. “We’re sorry for and share in the disappointment that we won’t be seeing one another as planned. Instead, let’s take this time to grieve, to her, to pull our loved ones close, and to appreciate all the music and memories we’ve made together.”

The 2022 Grammy Awards nominated the Foo Fighters for Best Rock Performance, Best Rock Songs and Best Rock Album. They won in all three categories.
