Pearl Jam pay tribute to Taylor Hawkins with emotional Foo Fighters cover - Watch

Pearl Jam paid tribute to the late Taylor Hawkins at their show last night in California - covering “Cold Day In The Sun,” a Hawkins-sung Foo Fighters song.

 

Similar to parts of Foo Fighter sets - Pearl Jam's drummer Matt Cameron handled guitar and vocals for the cover while Mark Guiliana filled in on drums and Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Chad Smith joined on tambourine.

 

 

Before the song, Eddie Vedder said - “It’s never easy when you lose someone.  As you get older, you’ll notice it starts happening more and more. It’s just where you are on the timeline and where your friends are on the timeline. But sometimes, like this, it’s so unexpected. It also makes it harder because he was someone who truly, truly loved living life on this planet. I guess the one thing we can be consoled by is the fact that he never wasted a moment, and he did live his life to the fullest. We just want more of it.”
