Pink Demonstrates Rock Prowess in Tribute to Taylor Hawkins

When Taylor Hawkins tragically passed away in 2022, it sent shockwaves through both his inner circle and the legion of fans who adored his music during his 25-year tenure as the Foo Fighters drummer. In his honor, the Foo Fighters organized two special concerts, one in London and the other in Los Angeles, to celebrate his life and legacy. These events saw a gathering of Taylor’s closest musician friends and collaborators, all eager to pay homage through music.

At the LA concert held at the Kia Forum, Pink was among the esteemed guests. Introduced by Dave Grohl as part of the segment where Taylor’s friends take the stage, Pink joined Dave in a heartfelt rendition of the Foo Fighters classic ‘The Pretender’. Fans were taken aback by Pink’s rock-infused vocals, sparking online comments like, “Is there anything Pink can’t sing?”

Several other iconic musicians also turned up to honor Taylor Hawkins and his musical contributions. In London, luminaries like Liam Gallagher, Paul McCartney, Brian Johnson, John Paul Jones, and Lars Ulrich graced the stage. Meanwhile, the LA concert featured legendary performances by Joan Jett, Brad Wilk, and Nancy Wilson, among others. Pink even had another unforgettable moment when she joined original Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor on stage to fill in for a missing performer due to COVID, delivering an impromptu yet flawless cover of ‘Somebody To Love’.

With each artist showcasing their admiration for Taylor Hawkins, it became evident how deeply he had touched lives as both a musical luminary and a cherished friend. Pink’s participation in these tributes, from belting out Foo Fighters hits to embodying Freddie Mercury’s spirit, underscored her rock prowess and honored the memory of this beloved rock icon.
