Dave Grohl’s Affectionate Term For Taylor Hawkins

March 25 marks one year since the tragic loss of drummer, Taylor Hawkins.

In the LiSTNR podcast Behind the Hits: Remembering Taylor Hawkins, Dave speaks of their bond.

“I’ve never loved a man like I love Taylor Hawkins. I don’t want to say he’s the love of my life because you know those annoying couples where both of the people are exactly alike, you’re like ‘I know why you love that person, you’re in love with yourself’. That’s how I feel about Taylor Hawkins.”
