During an appearance with Fox News’ “Fox & Friends”, Richie Sambora paid tribute to late drummer Taylor Hawkins, who passed away about one week ago.
Here’s what the guitarist said:
“Oh, man. The Foos are just a legendary band. It’s such a shame, obviously, because sometimes the perils of being in the rock and roll business can kill you. I was a lucky guy that I just didn’t like any of that crap that much. But Taylor was a great guy, an amazingly talented man, and they were one of the most successful bands in the world for a very long time.
”And we’d find ourselves on vacation together, just crossing paths and stuff like that. They were just a bunch of great guys. It’s gonna be a loss. You don’t even know what to say. It’s kind of beyond words, really, because he was such a great guy, and a talent.”
