A new compilation album, ‘The Essential Foo Fighters’ will be arriving in October!
This album will be the first release from the Foo Fighters since the tragic death of drummer Taylor Hawkins earlier this year.
Hawkins was found dead in Bogotó, Columbia when the band were touring South America.
Hawkins’ death led to an outpouring of grief among the world of rock music and entertainment. In his honour, this world of rock music came together to announce two special tribute concerts for Hawkins.
One gig took place in London’s Wembley Stadium earlier this month, while the second show will take place in LA in the next few weeks. These concerts feature star studded line ups.
