Taylor Hawkins, a hard-hitting, charismatic drummer for Fu Fighters, has died at the age of 50.

A statement posted on the band's social media late Friday and the death toll sent by its representative was confirmed, but did not provide a cause or location.

The band was scheduled to play a show at the Festival Asterio Picnic in Bogot,, Colombia on Friday night.

"We were in the position when they announced that the Fu Fighters would not be performing, but why didn't they say so. About 10 minutes later, the news broke that Taylor was dead," Reyes said.

Subsequently, candles were placed on the main stage as a watch for Hawkins, and the message "Taylor Hawkins por Simpre" was presented on a five-stage screen, which translates as "Taylor Hawkins Forever."
