Watch as 100 drummers pay tribute to Taylor Hawkins

Today (March 25) marks one year since the death of Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins. The exact cause of his cardiac failure has never been made public (I have theories) and his loss still stings. (Sidebar: Who will be the new Foos drummer? Again, I have some theories.)

To mark this sad anniversary, a Belgian rock band called Black Box Revelation put out the call to 100 drummers to perform “My Hero” at Sportpaleis Antwerp.
