The Australian Show That Nearly Broke Taylor Hawkins

This week marks one year since the tragic loss of Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters.

Taylor was a regular visitor to Australia – he’d played here only a few weeks before his shock death.

The Foo Fighters always spoke about their love of Australia, and we were the country that saw one of their most epic shows.

That was their Triple M Goat Island gig back in 2011, where they played for a remarkable three hours and 10 minutes.
