Shane Hawkins would have made his dad, Taylor Hawkins, so proud as he SLAYED the skins with his dad’s band during their tribute concert in his honor.
Lead singer and friend Dave Grohl got emotional at the 16-year-old perfectly filling his dad’s shoes.
He wasn’t the youngest to play drums that night…12-year-old social media star Nandi Bushell, who once challenged Grohl to a drum-off, played on “Learn To Fly.” At Friday’s six-hour show, Grohl introduced her as “the coolest f—ing drummer in the world.”
Taylor Hawkins died March 25th in Bogotá, Colombia, during the Foo Fighters’ South American tour. The surviving band members are scheduled to hold another tribute concert in L.A. on September 27th.
