Taylor Hawkins death came as a surprise to many, as he was even billed to perform on the day of his sudden demise.
The Foo Fighters drummer was found unresponsive in his hotel room in the capital city of Colombia, Bogota. He was subsequently confirmed dead by health officials.
Fans may be interested in knowing the cause of Taylor Hawkins death, but details circumstances surrounding his death remain sketchy.
However, the drummer has a history of overdosing heroine which can cause seizure and unresponsiveness if overdosed.
In August 2001, Hawkins went into coma for two straight weeks after overdosing heroine.
It is however not known if Hawkins death could be as a result of another overdose of a hard drug, as unresponsiveness can come as a result of overdose of drugs.
He died aged 50, and is survived with two children and a wife.
