Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith gave a speech at the end of the group’s Jazz Fest performance, which was played in front of the Foo Fighters band and family members. In it, he honored Hawkins and praised him for his talent and influence.
In the wake of Taylor Hawkins’ death, Foo Fighters canceled all other gigs and pulled out of their Jazz Fest appearance. RHCP stepped up to fill their headlining slot in New Orleans on Sunday.
Chad Smith continues to honor Hawkins by using a bass drum featuring “Taylor” emblazoned within a hawk in a similar fashion to one of Hawkins’ tattoos. Red Hot Chili Peppers closed out the Festival Stage on Sunday at Jazz Fest’s first of two weekends.
The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival returned to the Fairgrounds this past weekend after nearly two years of postponements and indecisiveness due to the pandemic.
Smith and RHCP bandmates vocalist Anthony Kiedis, bassist Flea, and guitarist John Frusciante jumbled live staples and five songs from their lately released Unlimited Love LP. The band had a few stunners in store for the crowd in New Orleans as Blood Sugar Sex Magik gem “If You Have To Ask”.
