Stevie Nicks is among the slew of musicians mourning the death of Taylor Hawkins, 50; on Friday, March 25, he was found dead in Bogotá, Colombia.

On Saturday, Stevie Nicks shared a touching tribute to Taylor Hawkins on Instagram and Twitter, posting two black and white photos of the pair smiling as they posed side-by-side. Accompanied with the images on Twitter were screenshots of a message Stevie Nicks penned for the late drummer, writing in part, “I just have to say~ Thank goodness for the photo booth in the Foo Fighters studio.”

“Because of these pictures my friendship with Taylor will always be at my fingertips,” she continued. “He always came to my shows. He and his best friend Dave even let me be a Foo Fighter for a little while. We recorded a kick a— version of Gold Dust Woman (live) and at the end of the song I yelled out’ Best Gold Dust Woman ever~’ And I meant it.”

Stevie Nicks continued her tribute message, writing, “Taylor was very handsome and he was very cute. Sometimes that combination is way better than ‘beautiful.'”

“I think it’s everything,” she said. “He had a huge heart and a glorious smile. When he walked into the room, everyone looked up, and when he left, everyone was sad….”

In another screenshot, Stevie Nicks shared a poem about Hawkins’s untimely death, writing, “I am sad now / I am really sad / It’s like rolling thunder / Yes, that’s what I said.”

“It’s like a bad dream~ / Comes like a wave~ / Gives you a moment / And then drags you away,” she wrote. “Our hearts are broken / We will never been the same / As I write these words~ / I feel the pain / But I will always remember~/ That the laughter and the fame / Brought us together / To play the game / And we played it, again and again and again / And it was extraordinary.”

Stevie Nicks concluded her touching tribute, “Don’t forget us,’ T.’ We’ll be right here. Love you, Stevie.”

On Friday, March 25, a statement announcing the death of Taylor Hawkins was released on the official social media accounts of the Foo Fighters.

“His musical spirit and infectious laughter will live on with all of us forever,” the statement read. “Our hearts go out to his wife, children and family, and we ask that their privacy be treated with the utmost respect in this unimaginably difficult time.”

No official cause of death has been released yet, and the investigation is still ongoing.
