Celebrities have been posting memories of the late Taylor Hawkins since his sudden death last week. And actor, John Stamos of Full House fame, shared his last text message the Foo Fighters’ drummer.
The two had been trying to spend some time together and Taylor wrote: “We’ve yet to fully have a hang – Got a put that s*** together before we die.”
Stamos, who also lost his friend and co-star Bob Saget in January, later shared a throwback video of Hawkins pretending to be upset with him for getting a Geico commercial instead of himself, in which Stamos flipped a knitting needle like a drumstick.
In a statement shared to Instagram, the Foo Fighters’ remaining members, Dave Grohl, Pat Smear, Chris Shiflett, Nate Mendel, and Rami Jaffee remembered Hawkins for “his musical spirit” and “infectious laughter.”
For the time being, Foo Fighters have ended their tour of South America.
- In the clip, Taylor says: “Stamos is a good buddy of mine. He’s a good guy. I really like him a lot. He’s a great drummer and he’s just a great dude, all that stuff,” Hawkins said in the old clip. “But I’m a little upset with him actually, I gotta be honest with you, because I was supposed to do that Geico commercial….Originally that was mine but they decided to go with Stamos ‘cause he’s better looking. But I’m the best stick flipper around. Sorry, Stamos….It goes me, Tommy Lee, Stamos.”
