There’s no such thing as an easy goodbye.
Musicians, especially those in bands, become like family. They spend hours upon hours together on the road, in the studio, and even in their spare time. So when one member decides to move on, it’s never easy.
Such was the case with Taylor Hawkins. The Foo Fighters drummer announced his departure from the band in January of this year. And while the Foos have continued on as a three-piece, fans have been eagerly waiting for any news of a new album – or even a tour.
But it seems that the Foos may have been keeping a big secret.
This week, the band’s Facebook page shared a cryptic photo of Taylor Hawkins. The photo is from the final show of the band’s 2017 tour, and shows Hawkins taking his final bow with the rest of the band.
The caption on the photo reads “Thanks for the memories, Taylor.”
Fans are already speculating about what this could mean. Could the Foos be planning a new album with Hawkins? Or is this a sign that the band is breaking up?
Only time will tell. But in the meantime, we can all cherish the memories of the good times we had with Taylor Hawkins and the Foo Fighters.

Did Taylor Hawkins drum for Alanis Morissette?
There has been some speculation over the years about who played drums on Alanis Morissette’s 1995 album “Jagged Little Pill.” Many people believe that it was Taylor Hawkins, who would later go on to become the drummer for the Foo Fighters.
However, Alanis has consistently denied that Hawkins played on the album. In a 2011 interview with MTV, she said, “That is not true. I played all the drums on that album. I’m not sure who started that rumor, but it’s not true.”
Despite Alanis’ insistence, many fans still believe that Hawkins played on the album. In fact, a poll on the Foo Fighters’ website showed that a majority of fans believe that he was the drummer on “Jagged Little Pill.”
So, who actually played drums on the album? The answer is still somewhat of a mystery. While Hawkins has never confirmed that he played on the album, he has never denied it either. And since Alanis has denied it, it’s likely that he didn’t play on the album.
However, it’s also possible that he did play on the album and Alanis is just trying to avoid giving him credit. Only Hawkins and Alanis know for sure who played on the album, and they’re not talking.

Some believe that the song “Thank U” from her 1998 album “Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie” is about him. The song contains the lyrics, “Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you/For seeing through/The games I used to play/And for walking away.”
Others believe that the song “You Oughta Know” from her 1995 album “Jagged Little Pill” is about Hawkins. The song contains the lyrics, “I want you to know that I’m happy for you/I wish nothing but the best for you both/Ankles tied together, flying through the air/Fooling yourself because you don’t care.”
