Taylor Hawkins, drummer for the Foo Fighters, sadly died in 2022. People have had two major questions about him since his death. First, what did he die of, considering he was still young. And second, what is Taylor Hawkins net worth in 2022. Let’s talk about his life and worth, then answer those other questions.

Who is Taylor Hawkins

Taylor Hawkins is a drummer. He is best known as the drummer for the band Foo Fighters, with whom he worked on nine albums. He also released three albums on his own project, Taylor Hawkins and the Coattail Riders. And he formed a supergroup called NHC that finished an album in 2021, with a 2022 release date.

Taylor Hawkins Childhood

According to Wikipedia, Taylor is actually the man’s middle name. His first name is Oliver. He was born in 1972 in Texas, but his family moved to Laguna Beach, California when he was four. He has an older brother and an older sister.

Taylor Hawkins Career

Some people just always seem to know what they were meant to be. Taylor Hawkins was meant to be a drummer. In his early twenties, he started off as the drummer for female rock musician Sass Jordan. By 23, he had become Alanis Morissette’s drummer. He was in that role for almost two years, during some of her most popular album tours.

Foo Fighters

In fact, at the time, Alanis was far more popular than the Foo Fighters. However, when the band lost their drummer, and they called their friend Hawkins for advice about who to hire next, he said, “how about me?” And history was made. He joined the band and things took off from there. He started working with them in 1997, and they released nine albums together, the most recent of which was in 2021.

Although he’s primarily their drummer, he has played other roles on different albums over the years. He has played both piano and guitar for the band and even occasionally lent his vocals to a song. He’s also credited as a co-writer on many albums, so some of Taylor Hawkins’s Net Worth in 2022 comes from his songwriting talent as well as his drumming.

Taylor Hawkins and the Coattail Riders

He obviously didn’t need to do anything except the Foo Fighters work for Taylor Hawkins net worth in 2022 to be substantial. After all, Foo Fighters is a huge band. In 2021, the group was added to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. However, creative people like to push themselves. So, in 2006, he launched his side project, Taylor Hakwins and the Coattail Riders. This resulted in three albums. They included features and collaborations with many other artists including LeAnn Rimes, Dave Grohl, Nancy Wilson, and more.

NHC Supergroup

One of Taylor Hawkins’ most recent projects was the supergroup NHC. The name is short for the names of the group: Dave Navarro, Hawkins himself, and Chris Chaney. Chaney is the bassist for Jane’s Addiction. He and Hawkins had worked together back when he worked with Alanis Morissette, so this was a great chance for the two of them to work together again. They recorded an album in 2021, shortly before Hawkins’ untimely March 2022 death.

Other Contributors to Taylor Hawkins Net Worth in 2022

These three bands, particularly, of course, the Foo Fighters are the major contributors to Taylor Hawkins’s net worth. However, he’s done all kinds of other things over the years for fun and money. He has served as a drummer and sometimes vocalist for specific events and albums, for example. Some include:

  • Drums on one Coheed and Cambria album and tour
  • Occasional appearances with Queen’s members
  • Completing a Beach Boys album
  • SOS Allstars Performance at Live Earth
  • Cover bands: one of the Police, another he started called Chevy Metal; the latter became its own band called Birds of Satan

He’s also occasionally done some acting. Although most of his IMDB credits are for music videos and composing, you’ll see that he played Iggy Pop in the film “CBGB.” He’s also in “Studio 666,” which is a non-documentary story of the Foo Fighters composing its tenth album. It’s a comedy/horror film that was released the month before Hawkins’ death.

Taylor Hawkins Personal Life

In 2005, Hawkins married his wife Alison. They have three children: Oliver, Annabelle, and Everleigh.

Taylor Hawkins Death

Taylor Hawkins died on March 25, 2022, having just turned 50 years old. The question many people ask first is, “what caused his death?” As of today, there’s no official cause of death. However, he reportedly had a number of different substances in his system, including opioids and Benzos.

The drummer has a history of drug overdose in the past. Approximately 20 years ago, Hawkins was in a coma for two weeks in London after a heroin overdose. The 2005 song “On the Mend” is about that experience from Dave Grohl’s perspective as his bandmate and best friend.

That said, “Rolling Stone”, which has a comprehensive article on the last days of the drummer’s life, reports that he died with a very enlarged heart, which could have killed him without the drugs. His friends report that they didn’t think he was dealing with a drug problem. The article cites rumors, unsubstantiated and disputed by Foo Fighters representatives, that he felt extreme stress about the heavy 2021/2022 touring schedule, alluding to, but not saying, that this could be a contributing factor in his death. Time will tell when a full report gets publicly released.

What Is Taylor Hawkins Net Worth in 2022?

So, that answers the first question people ask about Taylor Hawkins. The second is “what is Taylor Hawkins net worth in 2022?” In other words, how much did he leave to his family? According to Music Times, his estimated net worth is between $40 million to $75 million. Celebrity Net Worth cites it at the lower amount. Music Times notes that one of his major assets is his family’s Hidden Hills mansion, formerly owned by Howie Mandel, which they purchased for $2.7 million in 2012.
