RIP: Remembering Taylor Hawkins
One week ago we lost Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins, too young & too soon. I wanted to share this video from Bottle Rock Napa Valley a few years ago. Williams-Sonoma had drum kits made out of pots and pans to "spec" for Taylor & Chad Smith. They jumped on those kits with the enthusiasm of two little wide eyed kids. Taylor bought the kits, the money going to No Kid Hungry. It was a magical moment with a magical guy with big talent and a million dollar smile. I will treasure the moments in his presence at Bottle Rock forever. Sleep with the music angels Taylor.

In an internet era characterized by comment section wars, devastating clapbacks, and anonymous vitriol, Dylan Marron explores what happens when online feuders step out from behind the keyboard and get to know the human on the other side of the screen. Join Dylan as he connects people who have clashed online – from old friends to complete strangers — to explore why we believe what we believe, how we relate to each other on the internet, and just what a phone call can accomplish. Don't be fooled by the title! It's actually a loving show that fosters unlikely connections in an age of increasing digital isolation.
