” I just have to say,” Nicks wrote Saturday on her own social media accounts, “Thank you for the photo booth at the Foo Fighters Studio.” These photos will forever remind me of Taylor and my friendship .”
The Fleetwood Mac member and solo singer-songwriter uploaded a pair of black-and-white personal snapshots of a grinning Hawkins and herself.
“He came to all my shows,” she noted. “He and his best friend Dave even allowed me to be a Foo Fighter for just a while. We recorded a kickass version of Gold Dust Woman (live), and I shouted “Best Gold Dust Woman ever” at the end. ‘”
” And I meant it,” Nicks said, and continued to talk fondly of her friend.
“Taylor was very handsome, and he was very adorable. Sometimes, that combination is better than ‘beautiful. He had a big heart and a beautiful smile. Everyone looked up when he entered the room. She wrote that everyone was sad when he left the room and then shared her feelings about his death.

“I am sad now
I am really sad
It’s like rolling thunder
Yes, that’s what I said
It’s like a bad dream~
Comes like a wave~
Gives you a moment
Then, he drags you away.
Our hearts are broken,
We will never be the exact same.
As I write these words~
I feel the pain.
But I will always remember~
That the laughter and the fame
Brought us together
To play the game
And we played it, again and again and again
And it was extraordinary~
Don’t forget us, ‘T.’
