Our hearts go out to his wife, children and family, and we ask that their privacy be treated with the utmost respect in this unimaginably difficult time.”

The musician – who is survived by his wife Alison Hawkins and their three children, Oliver, Annabelle, and Everleigh – was on tour with the group in Bogota, Columbia, at the time. Shortly before his death, he allegedly was suffering from chest pains. On Saturday, the District Secretary of Health shared on Twitter that the local paramedics responded to a call about a patient experiencing pain in his chest at a hotel in the northern part of the country. Reports have come out that Hawkins was staying at the Casa Medina Hotel. Upon arrival to the scene, first responders attempted to resuscitate the musician. However, they were unsuccessful, and he was pronounced dead.

Such a tragedy…

Along with the report, the District Secretary of Health stated that the office “mourns the death of this talented musician and drummer, widely recognized internationally for his work” and “sends its message of condolences to the family, colleagues and followers.”

As always, we will keep you updated if any more news comes out regarding Taylor’s death. We are continuing to keep his band members, friends, and family in our thoughts during this difficult time.
