The Rhythm Of Taylor Hawkins

Rhythm is a part of life. In music, it can be everything. Every ensemble or band has to have someone to create a rhythm that can get people dancing. Taylor Hawkins was that person for the rock band Foo Fighters. He died last week when the band was on a world tour. He was an amazing drummer who made his band so much better. From what I understand he was a really good person.

It’s rare when you have a band with two legendary drummers including Dave Grohl who was the drummer for Nirvana. Foo Fighters will have to find a way forward to make the rhythm happen once again. Rest in power Taylor. Your talent will live on.

Music Monday – Foo Fighters – Times Like These – #prayfororlando #ripchristinagrimmie #orlando

I came upon this song and the lyrics of it just seem appropriate today in light of what as a nation and community went through this past weekend. I dedicate this to Orlando, a city I like a lot and have fond memories. This is also in memory and honor of the Pulse Nightclub victims both survivors and those lost. It also goes out to the family friends and fans of Christina Grimmie of “The Voice” who was murdered in Orlando on Friday night.

“Times Like These”

I am a one way motorway
I’m the road that drives away
then follows you back home
I am a street light shining
I’m a white light blinding bright
burning off and on

it’s times like these you learn to live again
it’s times like these you give and give again
it’s times like these you learn to love again
it’s times like these time and time again

I am a new day rising
I’m a brand new sky
to hang the stars upon tonight
I am a little divided
do I stay or run away
and leave it all behind?

it’s times like these you learn to live again
it’s times like these you give and give again
it’s times like these you learn to love again
it’s times like these time and time again
