Taylor Hawkins was no stranger to the talent of his fan and decided to leave his hotel room to greet the little drummer and even took a photo to remember, an image that quickly went viral.
“My daughter, since she found out that the Foo Fighters were coming, started a campaign to meet them. Today we took her drums to play in front of the Sheraton (hotel) and look who came out of it at her call”, the girl’s father wrote. Without imagining, that days later, the drummer Hawkins would die in Colombia.
