He was a great drummer, which had to be weird when you're playing with Dave Grohl, who is (well, was) an incredible one himself.
At this time there is no cause of death, and you'd hate for it to be drug-related. It would be so cliché......and avoidable. He had OD'd almost two decades ago. Yet, 50 is young. And I can say that now.
But it seems appropriate to include music for which he played. One is his earlier days with the band, and then one from last year when the Foos relased a tribute EP to the Bee Gees, where Taylor sings lead on one song, "Shadow Dancing", which is technically an Andy Gibb song, but............well...........was it?
