One year after the sudden death of Taylor Hawkins, Studio Brussel has paid tribute to Foo Fighters' iconic drummer by gathering 100 drummers and the Belgian rock band Black Box Revelation to perform the classic FOO FIGHTERS song "My Hero". The performance was filmed at Sportpaleis Antwerp, the last venue in Belgium Hawkins played with Foo Fighters before his passing.

In a statement, Black Box Revelation said: "Taylor Hawkins was the best drummer of our times. Honouring him with this tribute was an experience we will never forget."

Gino Kesteloot, one of the participating musicians, added: "It's the first time I played together with 100 other drummers. It sounded great, I even got goosebumps all over my body! Wonderful to honor our hero this way."

Hawkins was found dead on March 25, 2022 at the Four Seasons Casa Medina hotel in Bogota.

An official cause of death for Hawkins hasn't yet been released. But on March 26, 2022, Colombia's attorney general's office released a preliminary toxicology report, saying that medical examiners found evidence of 10 types of substances in Hawkins's body, including opioids, benzodiazepines, marijuana and antidepressants.
