Italy’s Rockin’ 1000 has this tribute to Taylor Hawkins

We first heard of The Rockin’ 1000, the massive volunteer collective of musicians, when they staged a giant performance (with 1,000 musicians, of course) to entice the Foo Fighters to play their corner of Italy in Cesena. You might remember this video from 2015.

Earlier this month, they were back at it with this “Learn to Fly” tribute to Taylor Hawkins staged in a square in Turin.
