Foo Fighter Drummer Taylor Hawkins has passed at age 50. The band released a statement Friday evening stating that they are “devastated by the tragic and untimely loss.” This story is still developing.

The band was preparing to perform in Bogota, Colombia on Friday night for Lollapalooza Brazil. Bogota Health officials responded to a call about a patient with chest pains in a hotel who was unresponsive when they tried to give aid. Though the Colombian Attorney General’s Office will continue to investigate, initial forensic medical examination and toxicology reports revealed that ten substances, including marijuana, antidepressants, and opioids, were in the musician’s body.
