Taylor Hawkins’ son plays drums for Foo Fighters at tribute concert

The 16-year-old paid tribute to his dad at Wembley Stadium alongside Paul McCartney and Them Crooked Vultures

Foo Fighters closed out the show at the Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concert this Saturday with the help of some special guests. Paul McCartney, who inducted Foo Fighters into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame last year, joined the band to play a couple of Beatles tracks. He was joined by Pretenders’ Chrissie Hynde, as well as Dave Grohl, Pat Smear and Omar Hakim.

Them Crooked Vultures also got back together for a surprise reunion at the show, marking their first performance in 12 years. Josh Homme, Dave Grohl, John Paul Jones, and Alain Johannes performed two covers: Elton John’s ‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road’ and Queens Of The Stone Age’s ‘Long Slow Goodbye’, as well as their own track ‘Gunman’.

But the most emotional tribute came from Shane Hawkins, son of the late Taylor Hawkins. The 16-year-old picked up his dad’s drumsticks to play alongside Foo Fighters as they tackled an immense setlist. The band closed out with tracks ‘My Hero’ and ‘Everlong’. Watch Shane’s performance of ‘My Hero’ below:
