CHAPINERO, COLOMBIA — The mainstream media gymnastics continue as of publishing of this article. But we are going with common sense and the preponderance of evidence to stop the postmortem smear campaigns meant to deflect attention away from the culprit herein.
First, the Foo Fighters and a short trip down memory lane. For this blogger, those transition years from the late 1980s to early 1990s produced some of the best music in history. The 1991 Nevermind album by Nirvana signaled that the 80s junior high years were over and the 90s high school years were upon us. Kurt Cobain was the frontman and guitarist. And Dave Grohl was the drummer and backup vocalist.
Cobain committed suicide on April 3, 1994. The band broke up and Grohl set off on his own. He recorded a 15-track studio album later that year. Grohl wrote every song, played all the instruments and produced the album himself. But he didn’t want a solo career. He wanted to be part of a band. So Grohl recruited Pat Smear (guitar), Nate Mendel (bass), and William Goldsmith, remixed the album, and released it in July of 1995 with the eponymous name Foo Fighters.

Grohl and Goldsmith clashed after recording the band’s second album The Colour and the Shape. Both men are drummers, with competing styles and philosophies. Goldsmith left the band right before the album was released in 1997. Former Alanis Morissette touring drummer Taylor Hawkins replaced Goldsmith as the Foo Fighters’ new drummer. After some more musical chairs with band member, the Foo Fighters recorded their third album, and first with Hawkins as the drummer – There Is Nothing Left To Lose. The album produced the band’s first U.S. Billboard Hot 100 hit, “Learn To Fly.” The song peaked at #19 on January 22, 2000.
The Foo Fighters were now firmly established, with Grohl and Hawkins as the faces of the franchise, if you will.
Taylor Hawkins drug use
The Foo Fighters are a successful rock band born in the 1990s. All of the guys were in their 20s and early 30s at the time. That means they did drugs and they did women. That’s what rock bands did in the 1990s, and in the three decades prior to that as well. Mr. Grohl divorced his first wife in 1997 in the midst of the band’s rising success. Meanwhile Mr. Hawkins was overindulging in his drug of choice, heroin, in the late 1990s and at the turn of the millennium.
Mr. Hawkins was in London in August 2001 when he overdosed on heroin. He was in a coma for two weeks. His condition put the band at a crossroads. The Foo Fighters tried recording their fourth album, One by One, in late 2001. But Mr. Grohl didn’t like how the album turned out, and production ceased. He started working with the band Queens of the Stone Age in early 2002, signaling that the Foo Fighters may be done. Mr. Hawkins, in a later interview, owned the fact that his overdose played a part in the band nearly breaking up. They finally reconvened and released One by One in late 2002.

Mr. Hawkins acknowledged that his heroin overdose was the wake up call that he desperately needed in life. He told Matt Wilkinson of Beats 1’s:
“Well, I was partying a lot. I wasn’t like a junkie per se, but I was partying. There was a year where the partying just got a little too heavy. Thank God on some level this guy gave me the wrong line with the wrong thing one night and I woke up going, ‘What the fuck happened?’ That was a real changing point for me. “I don’t think that glamorizing that lifestyle is a good thing – I just don’t. I think it’s a bad message”
Mr. Hawkins got married in 2005, and has been married ever since. In a 2021 interview with Kerrang! magazine, he elaborated further on the overdose and what it did for his life:
“Everyone has their own path and I took it too far. I was partying in London one night, and I mistakenly did something and it changed everything. I believed the bullshit myth of live hard and fast, die young. I’m not here to preach about not doing drugs, because I loved doing drugs, but I just got out of control for a while and it almost got me. I wouldn’t take anything away that I’ve done or been through either, because it’s all part of the trip and the journey. I’m trying to be as candid as I can be. I go mountain biking now.”
Mr. Hawkins said in a 2017 Rolling Stone interview that he was sober.
Foo Fighters vaxx zealotry
The Foo Fighters were Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins and everyone else, in that order. Mr. Grohl is the boss, and from all accounts, isn’t necessarily easy to work with, particularly in the studio. Grohl makes all the rules for the band, including how they conduct themselves at live shows.
There is no indisputable proof (e.g. photos or admission) that Mr. Hawkins received the injections. But again, Grohl, a vaxx zealot, is the boss. The preponderance of evidence points to all of the Foo Fighters being vaxxed and boosted. Grohl and vaxx zealot Mick Jagger released a song on April 13, 2021 called “Eazy Sleazy.” It not only promotes the mRNA and viral vector DNA injections, but also mocks the non-vaccinated with tired, regurgitated tropes. Here are some of the lyrics:
“Shooting the vaccine,
Bill Gates is in my bloodstream,
It’s mind control,
The Earth is flat and cold,
It’s never warming up,
The Arctic’s turned to slush,
The seconds coming late,
And there’s aliens in the deep state.”
Then there are all the Foo Fighters live shows in 2021. First there was the June 18 show at the Canyon Club in Agoura Hills, California. Only “fully-vaccinated” fans were allowed inside, per Grohl’s policy. The Foo Fighters June 20 concert at Madison Square Garden was also “fully vaccinated fans only.” They also required proof of vaccination for shows in Alaska. It’s stands to reason that if all fans are required to be injected, so are all band members.
The Foo Fighters vaccine mandates for live shows led to both some irony and humor in 2021. The band had to postpone a July Los Angeles show because one of the band member tested positive for COVID-19 despite presumably being fully-vaccinated.
The band cancelled a Minneapolis show in November apparently because of the venue’s refusal to enforce the band’s vaccine mandate for attendees.
Taylor Hawkins death
The Foo Fighters were in Bogota, Colombia to perform a show at the Festival Estereo Picnic on March 25. But shortly before the band was set to take the stage, they released a statement saying Mr. Hawkins had passed away at his hotel in Chapinero. He was 50 years old.
The show was immediately cancelled right as fans were arriving around 11 p.m. that night. A whole different kind of show commenced from there with mainstream media and Colombia authorities.
A Colombian reporter named Luis Carlos Vélez tweeted that Colombian authorities found “10 different substances” including opioids and heroin in Mr. Hawkins’ room. Thus Mr. Vélez insinuated that Mr. Hawkins died of a drug overdose.
He reversed course somewhat and said “drug use has not been confirmed yet” less than an hour later. A few more tweets provide further details, including the most important one. Witnesses said Mr. Hawkins called the front desk complaining of chest pains right before he passed away. An ambulance arrived, but could not revive him. That means his heart stopped beating.
Several mainstream media outlets then reported details of a “toxicology report” for Mr. Hawkins, despite toxicology reports typically taking four to six weeks to complete. Mainstream media quickly revised the narrative and started using the phrase “preliminary toxicology report.” The smoking gun, if you will, came out late Sunday. A forensic examination found that Mr. Hawkins’ heart weighed about 600 grams, which is double the size for the average man his age.
The next narrative was that a urine toxicology test found 10 substances, including benzodiazepines, opioids, THC (weed) and anti-depressants. Note that the latter was likely a prescription, and THC stays in urine for weeks and even months. Now the most recent narrative is that Mr. Hawkins died of “cardiovascular collapse” after binging on heroin and other drugs.
Vaxx zealots are angrily attacking critical thinkers on social media for talking about the obvious. Myocarditis, aka heart inflammation, is the second-most common adverse reaction to the injections after blood clots covered on this blog. Further, we’ve covered numerous cases of vaccinated people dying suddenly and unexpectedly of heart attacks and cardiac arrest. Of course the top symptom of a heart attack is chest pain, which Mr. Hawkins complained of right before he passed.
We’ve seen many people on social media claim that myocarditis does not enlarge the heart. But the Myocarditis Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated solely to saving people from this ailment, says right on its website:
“In simple terms, myocarditis is a disease that causes inflammation of the heart muscle. This inflammation enlarges and weakens the heart, creates scar tissue and forces it to work harder to circulate blood and oxygen throughout the body.”
And there’s also this tidbit from the same page:
“Myocarditis is the 3rd leading cause of Sudden Death in children and young adults.”
That all said, mainstream media want us all to believe that a 50-year-old man with two kids and a wife of 17 years; a man who made clear he learned his lesson in 2001, and had lived a solid family life with perhaps occasional drug use here and there, just decided on a spontaneous heroin/benzo/cocaine bender right before a show, called for help, then died of an overdose.
Unfortunately for vaxx zealots and their mainstream media, the Occam’s Razor, critical thinking cause of death is post-injection myocarditis that enlarged and stopped his heart. The deniers are also forwarding the narrative “you don’t know addiction.” What we do know is the difference between someone who wants to die and wants to live. It, again, stands to reason that Mr. Hawkins was in the latter group.
Our thoughts are with the Hawkins family.
Covering celebrity post-injection deaths and adverse reactions
We covered the post-injection death of comedian Bob Saget. He boasted about being triple-vaxxed and died a few weeks later. About a month after his death, mainstream media concluded that, well, read for yourself.
We all know that talk show host Wendy Williams’ downfall is the result of the injections. Now her handlers who made her get the shots are trying to take away her money. Speaking of handlers, at least Chelsea (Handler) and comedienne Heather McDonald semi-acknowledged that the injections had something to do with their recent issues. And don’t forget Celine Dion. Her career is definitely over after the injections. But now she’s questioning if she’ll ever even live a normal life again.
Vaxx zealots believe zero people have died or been maimed by the injections. It would take one of those famous, annoying liberal people on TV to get maimed by the shots and actually admit that it was caused by the shots, for the zealots to arrive at truth. But even then, it may not matter.
It’s sad that Mr. Hawkins went out this way. From all accounts, he had a great family, overcame addiction, and lived a helluva life. But now fake history will say he died from a drug overdose, while 19 Muslims with boxcutters did 9/11.

Seeing that the Foo Fighters required that everyone that attend their concerts be jabbed, how many of them are now going to have permanent adverse side effects in the near future? Their stage manager Andy Pollard died last June just a couple of days before the Foo Fighter’s concert in Madison Square Garden.
Oh looky what I found from Medium.com:
“When Kurt died, I had this whole new outlook at life, that we’re all so lucky to be here,” Grohl told Esquire in 2014. “You can’t take life for granted. It’s short. It’s fragile. And you don’t know when it’s going to be taken away from you. So the short time that you’re here? You just have to kick ass the whole time and not look back.”
This heroic refusal to look back would seem to include not looking back upon his band’s very public support for Alive and Well AIDS Alternatives, an AIDS denial group that argued HIV did not cause AIDS — and that HIV was, in fact, harmless and non-contagious. Alive and Well argued that AIDS was likely caused by recreational drug use and/or the very antiretroviral drugs used to treat HIV patients, and as such it discouraged people from taking HIV tests, practicing safe sex, or, for those living with HIV, accepting medication. In the late 1990s, its director was personally received by South African President Thabo Mbeki, a man who also denied the link between HIV and AIDS and, by banning antiretroviral drugs in public hospitals, is credibly blamed for hundreds of thousands of deaths.
Alive and Well was not your usual celebrity charity then, but it was nonetheless amplified by one of the biggest bands in the world. In early 2000, President Clinton’s director of AIDS policy admonished them: “For the Foo Fighters to be promoting this is extraordinarily irresponsible behaviour. There is no doubt about the link between HIV and AIDS in the respected scientific community and it’s quite unfortunate that a band reads one book and then adopts this theory. To say [that HIV does not cause AIDS] is akin to saying the world is flat.”
That “one book” was What If Everything You Thought You Knew About AIDS Was Wrong? — self-published pseudo-science written by Alive and Well’s founder, Christine Maggiore, a woman diagnosed with HIV in the early ’90s — and it fell into the idle hands of the Foo Fighters’ bassist, Nate Mendel. After devouring it, Mendel conscripted his bandmates in his advocacy for Maggiore’s group.
The alliance lasted years. In January 2000, the group held a benefit concert for Alive and Well. “I’m living in perfect health without any AIDS medicines,” Maggiore told the cheering crowd between songs. For years, the band’s website featured Alive and Well banners, and listed them as a favoured charity.
When Mother Jones ran an article critical of Mendel in 2000, the musician responded with an indignant letter: “The story takes a decidedly derisive view of our efforts … I am not a medical professional, and I am relatively new to these questions, but I am convinced that those who have tested HIV positive and those sick with AIDS are being done a disservice by not having all the information available to them.”
The founder of Alive and Well is long dead. So is her daughter. Both succumbed to AIDS. Christine Maggiore fell pregnant in 2001, spurned antiretroviral drugs, breastfed her daughter and refused to have her tested for the virus. As her child became increasingly ill, Maggiore attributed her sickness to other things and sought quacks to reaffirm her delusions. Eliza was three when she died — after an autopsy, a coroner ruled that the “unequivocal” cause of her death was AIDS-related Pneumocystis pneumonia.
The death of her daughter did not free Maggiore from her destructive theories — or the Foo Fighters from their endorsement of them. Instead, Maggiore doubled down. She accused the coroner of political bias and continued to refuse treatment for herself. She died three years after her daughter, of pneumonia as well, and we are left with the very essence of tragedy: a denial of extreme and self-annihilating sophistication.
You might say that this is old news, except that it was never really news in the first place — and there’s almost no cultural memory of it now. Regarding the band’s destructive foolishness, the internet resembles a hastily cleaned crime scene. Professionally rinsed, however, are Paul Brannigan’s “in-depth” and best-selling 2011 biography of Grohl, and Mick Wall’s 2015 band biography Learning to Fly. Many years of interviews and magazine profiles — accounting for hundreds of thousands of words — have never referenced it. A 5000-word profile of Grohl in Rolling Stone in 2017 refers to the “crazy” early years of the band, which included the 2001 overdose and subsequent coma of its drummer, Taylor Hawkins, but the band’s long and destructive support of HIV denialism is, typically, never mentioned.
There’s a dark irony here, or perhaps just ghastly resonance: Grohl personally knows the harm of conspiracy theories. For decades, the suicide of Grohl’s bandmate Kurt Cobain has been loudly reinterpreted by twisted hyper-fans as a murder coordinated by Cobain’s wife, Courtney Love — a baseless claim that has greatly compounded suffering.
“I’m absolutely confident that I’m doing the right thing,” Nate Mendel once said. “No, I wouldn’t feel responsible for possibly harming somebody. I [feel] I’m doing the opposite.”
Misinformation kills. It impairs health campaigns and incites fatal insurrections. It erodes public faith in its institutions and emboldens militancy and extremism. It encourages families to remove their grievously sick from hospital. The Foo Fighters’ amplification of fatal misinformation should be on the record, as should the band’s silent and cowardly retreat from it, a successful vanishing act that was enabled by a vapid and transactional music press that cherishes access — however qualified — above all else. Grohl loves talking about rock’s power of soulful confession, but on this there’s only silence.
I agree. This was anther Jab death. The fervent denials by the mass media are in fact confirmation of this. The number of his fans who will die as a consequence of Hawkins’ promotion of the jab remains to be seen. Personally I don’t belong to that generation, I am now 81, so their music sounds very tuneless and mind numbing to me. Perhaps that was the intent.
I’m 27 and even I find their music garbage.
I’m only 60 but I’m feeling old because I remember when bands used to be all about freedom!
And far better written songs. I’m 63 and music was so much more creative when I was growing up.
Agreed. Can you imagine Neil Young being the virtue signaller he recently proved himself to be back in the late 60s/early 70s?
Then the people must learn the lesson, this time in the worse way possible: don’t get ”influenced” by actors, singers for things like health issues, who to vote for and for nothing regarding ideology as the same that promoted everything bad were the vaccine zelots as well.
This David is 45, but agrees with you 100% about the “tuneless” music. A few measures of catchy tunes followed by long howling and hard stomping, and you have a “hit”. Not the kind of concert I would risk my health for.
But it is a very popular band, so a loud “slapping” scandal must turn up to deflect attention from the drummer’s demise, which smells like vax spirit.
And he was a mountain biker as well, meaning he was in at least presumably in good health.
And a professional drummer, you have to have athletic cardiavascular health to drum professionally like he did.
Never understood what was so great about the foo fighters. Even less appealing since their vaxx zealotry. They should all be worried as karma is coming back to get them. I hope his children aren’t vaxxed but with parents like that , they probably are. And will his family defend his “clean” lifestyle or allow it to be thrown out for the sake of maintaining the vaxx lie. Yeah. Maybe have to ask head zealot, Grohl.
Excellent research and commentary in this article!
Also thanks for the other celebrity followups, I was not aware of those latest developments.
According to Bob Sagat’s autopsy, his heart was also enlarged to 600g, exactly the same as Hawkins. No one will, or wants to, connect the dots.
If you question or even say these celebrities like Taylor Hawkins died or had a health scare due to the Covid shot you get attacked by the vaxxed zealots especially online. They don’t want to believe the Covid shot caused it, and are in denial.
Vaxxed Failures would rather Die than admit that they have been HAD…
Sad but true. The ability to ignore the obvious is baffling.
Great article and I had the same reaction when I heard of his death. Has to be heart-related thanks to the vaxx. You mentioned Chelsea Handler and Heather McDonald. It’s interesting that there have been no articles about either of them after the initial press reports. I have been searching every few days for updates and… crickets. They were both huge vaxx proponents so I think it is fair to find out how they are doing now, especially after McDonald’s sudden and frightening collapse on stage.
I looked up Chelsea. Apparently she has a very busy tour schedule this year.
She’s calling it “Vaccinated and Horny Tour.” I guess she finds the jab to be
A lot of these 10 “substances” are legally prescribed. The way that these clot shots interact with other drugs is largely unknown. It ain’t good though.
Great article, thank you.
I recently found out Jean Smart’s husband actor Richard Gilliland died suddenly last year of a heart attack. I read that Jean thought it was a reaction to the jab, but later said it was from an undiagnosed heart defect. Also former Country Singer Jeff Carson died suddenly of a heart attack over the weekend.
I have been following Foo Fighters for a long time. At the beginning – Grohl and the Foo Fighters were very anti-vax and were vocally unsupportive of Dr. Fauci and the whole AIDS/AZT charade. What changed them to vax zealots?
Mr. Hawkins seemed like a loveable man that like every man had his vices and seemed like a good sport. RIP.
I believe it was money. That is always the reason
That’s the first thing thing that came to my mind. Maybe they took a bribe from Big Pharma. They wouldn’t be the first ones.
Exactly! I know that Taelor believed that the MMR vaccine was related to autism! Sure seems strange to me that they all got on the cult of the branch Covidians. I’d like to think that Taelor was reluctant but I think Dave is a total asshole.
True about them being contrarian to the HIV=AIDS story.
One could guess that social pressure and the oh-so-powerful “belonging to the herd” (and getting gigs) was a factor is their repentance. BTW, when was the last time we have seen a famous person criticize a genuine issue and disagree with the mainstream narrative?
Same here. I used to follow these guys around the northeast, concert hopping. Then they started campaigning for the DNC.. (I wasn’t even political at that point) but all the anti establishment stuff they used to sing about started to ring false and I couldn’t stomach to even listen to old songs that I loved before.(same with RATM) Now Grohls on tv screaming about lasagna to Kevin Hart… Became ‘the pretender’.. how nauseating..
That’s the problem with the groupies : they look for some messenger to fall in love with, instead of staying focused just on the message.
I like the early hits of RATM, while I couldn’t give a fook about their vax stance, their politics, their early worship of Noam Chomsky….etc.
Most people just need some human(sl to cling to, no matter what. That’s why I think christians built a personality cult around a man, Jesus, who used to eat and go to the bathroom just like they all do. Worshiping an unseen God, known at this point only through His Attributes and His creation that provides a lot of signs, that”s just too much beneath them, so they think.
Definitely the killer jab ! How many coincidences can there be ? The evidence is becoming more and more overwhelming
The decade of sudden death ? is upon us.
In a related sound-bite :
“On January 12, 2022, Jenna Jameson announced that she was suffering from Guillain–Barré syndrome”.
It is said she can not walk anymore and that her future ex current boyfriend has to carry her from one room to the other.
I want my $4.99 back !!!.
On another related sound bite, “Mike Swick” former UFC fighter, 42 yo ;
“While he did not specify which kind of cancer he’s dealing with, Swick said he had it for seven months without knowing. His lymph nodes were swollen, but he tacked the issue up to a COVID-19 vaccine side effect. As it turns out, it was something much more serious.”
This is just too foocking ridiculous. I give up.
Colombia requires all foreign visitors to be vaxed in order to enter the country.
It probably true that he did die from a drug overdose, however it was more likely a ‘gene therapy’ one rather than anything ‘recreational’ !
According to the media, apparently Saget had “long COVID” gathered off a conversation with one person. It’s amazing how easy it is to jump to conclusions except the obvious one.
I am a fan of the band and was thrilled to meet Taylor several years ago because he’s such a gifted drummer. Turns out to be a super nice guy as well. I was also thrilled to meet Dave Grohl on another occasion however I have since soured on him because he thought it appropriate to enforce medical tyranny on his fans. I partially blame him for Taylor’s death and I hope Taelor’s family gives him all the thanks he’s so richly deserves.
Karma is quite a coincidence these days!
RIP , but some folks just love their shots…Go with God and thank you for your sacrifice. brave man being a lab rat for our safety.
“And there’s aliens in the deep state”
I do not want to be a grammar Nazi but it should be either:
“there are aliens”
“there is an alien”
Tards can’t even do primary school level grammar.
anyone who “advocates”,pushes vaccines ought to be arrested for murder.
Imagine how much worse it would have been if he hadn’t been vaccinated
Oh, my, I get that joke. A lot of the jabbed wouldn’t.
The FF always seemed forced. Never had the impact of Nirvana IMHO. Also, who would ever expect an official communique from a rock and roll band to use the words “out of an abundance of caution”, blah, blah, blah. Poor Taylor Hawkins, snatched from the prime – now he’ll never get to finish his side project, “The Birds of Satan”.
Was never a fan of the 90s grunge .
Butch Vig’s Gish was superior in every way to his Nevermind. But I guess the latter was easier to digest for the (m)asses. If I may borrow a line from Under the Silver Lake, every generation has its tune, but the song writer always remains the same. Oh how the beautiful people would laugh at the old-timey Sunday radio preachers taking about the devil’s music.
Kurt Cobain had everything to live for, I don’t believe that he would take his own life. Courtney Love was facing divorce proceedings, a prospect that she was unlikely to have relished.
Mystery meets mayhem, in this comical movie romp adaptation of Reznor buying the Tate house for recording inspiration. Featuring America’s favorite band, the Foo Fighters, where Taylor and crew experience larger than life demonic calamity in this on-demand extravaganza. Look for “Studio 666” now on Amazon Prime video. You’ll be glad you did.
I suppose one could say Dave Grohl and his vaxxed fanaticism assisted in taking the life of Taylor Hawkins. I certainly won’t bother with the Foo Fighters anymore.
Sorry for his family’s loss, I hope that they’re all good, lost my Mom July 25 , missing her little pretty face every day, God bless the family
