The Taylor Hawkins tribute in LA included Violet Grohl singing “Hallelujah”

Some of the biggest names in music came together at the Kia Forum to honor the late drummer of the Foo Fighters. This was the second tribute show this month dedicated to Taylor, the first being in London. The night kicked off with Joan Jett performing with Travis Barker. Joan spoke about her close friendship with Hawkins and got choked up trying to finish her speech. Such is the story for all of the performers that night.

Other acts included Queen, Rush, Pink, Them Crooked Vultures, and Kesha. Violet Grohl came out to sing to Leonard Cohen’s, “Hallelujah” and there wasn’t a dry eye inside of the Forum. Fellow drummers Josh Freese and Chad Smith also showed up to honor their friend.
