In the five-star Casa Medina hotel room of Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins, who died at 50, a white powder similar to cocaine and hallucinogens was purportedly discovered.

According to well-known Colombian journalist Luis Carlos Velez, a police officer who entered Hawkins’ room told prosecutors he saw a ‘cocaine-like’ white substance, the director of radio station FM in Bogota.

Meanwhile, El Tiempo, a respected Colombian newspaper, reported that private information indicated that hallucinogens – mind-altering chemicals such as LSD – were found inside the hotel room.

‘In the room, Colombian officials discovered an empty beer can, an opened bottle of vodka, a Coca-Cola bottle, and other objects that are being examined by authorities,’ Velez stated.

‘Witnesses at the hotel said Taylor Hawkins dialled the front desk for assistance after complaining of “chest pain” before being discovered dead in his room.’

According to an unsubstantiated local source, several glasses were found inside the drummer’s room, prompting speculation that he had been entertaining guests before his death.

‘As soon as we were made aware of the death of foreign national Taylor Hawkins, the Foo Fighters drummer, who was staying at a hotel in the north of Bogota, a team of prosecutors and investigators was mobilised to deal with urgent matters and support the investigation,’ Colombia’s State Prosecution Service confirmed in its first official comments on the tragedy.

Officials from the prosecutor’s office have yet to remark on the possibility that drugs caused the musician’s death.

A private report obtained by Colombian daily El Tiempo indicated that hallucinogens – mind-altering chemicals such as LSD – were found inside the hotel room. (A file photograph of a hotel room at Casa Medina is shown.)

The 50-year-old musician died in a hotel room in the north of Colombia’s capital, with a history of drug use.

In a statement posted by many Colombian newspapers, the Metropolitan Police of Bogota said: ‘The cause of death has yet to be determined.’ According to some close to him, his death may have been caused by drug use.’

According to local sources, hotel personnel contacted 911 after Hawkins complained of chest symptoms, but he was already dead when paramedics arrived. The Foo Fighters were supposed to perform in the Colombian capital.

Hawkins, a father of two teenage children, had openly disclosed his drug and overdose problems years before his ‘tragic and untimely death, according to the band.

Hawkins overdosed on heroin and went into a coma in 2001, four years after joining Foo Fighters, which he later characterized as the result of him “going too far.”

As word of the drummer’s death spread, Colombian music and entertainment journalist Alejandro Marin tweeted: ‘Don’t start blaming the country because Taylor, assuming he died of an overdose, died in Colombia.’ ‘Don’t be so naive.’

Immediately following Hawkins’ death, crowds of fans, journalists, and videographers gathered outside the hotel where the band had been staying. Many others were stunned at the news, with some even lighting candles.

Outside the property, ambulances and police cars could be seen stationed. Hawkins’ body was finally taken out of the hotel late Friday night, loaded into a coroner’s van, and transported away.

The band was set to perform at the Festival Estéreo Picnic in the Colombian capital. Still, a statement informed concertgoers that the band would be unable to perform due to a “severe medical problem.”

Hawkins, married to Alison and the father of two teenage children, Oliver and Annabelle, had just finished a string of South American tour dates, with the band’s most recent performance coming last Sunday in San Isidro, Argentina.

Hawkins experienced a heart attack, according to health officials in Bogota, Wednesday night.

After experiencing ‘chest problems,’ the Foo Fighters drummer caused a medical emergency, according to the Secretariat of Health.

‘With relation to the death of American artist Taylor Hawkins in the Chapinero neighborhood on Friday night, the City Health Department confirms the following:

‘A patient with chest trouble in a hotel in the city’s north received an alert from the city’s Emergency Regulation Centre.

‘An ambulance was dispatched to this location. When the health department personnel arrived, they discovered a mobile response unit from EMI on the scene.’

‘The emergency medical responder stated that attempts to resuscitate the patient had been made, but there had been no response, and the patient was pronounced dead.’

‘The appropriate authorities retrieved the body and began the investigations that are required in these types of occurrences.’

‘We express our sympathies to his family, bandmates, and fans on the passing of this great and well-known drummer.’

Even though police had hinted earlier in the day that Mr. Hawkins’ death could have been drug-related, it did not mention narcotics in its statement.

According to local sources, hotel personnel at Casa Medina, the luxury hotel where Hawkins was staying, had already called up emergency response teams after the drummer complained of chest symptoms.

Hawkins joined the band in 1997, after their second album, The Colour, and the Shape was done.

Hawkins played drums for Alanis Morissette before being hired by Foo Fighters leader Dave Grohl, also Nirvana’s famed drummer.

Some fans said prayers and lit candles to the legendary drummer who died in his hotel room on Friday night

Some admirers paid their respects to the iconic drummer, who died in his hotel room on Friday night.

In the aftermath of a previous tragedy, Grohl founded his second band, the Foo Fighters, in 1994, only months after Nirvana’s frontman Kurt Cobain committed suicide.

Grohl retreated after Cobain’s suicide in April, wondering if he wanted to stay in the music industry. Still, in October of that year, after creating a 15-track demo and signing with Capitol Records, he formed Foo Fighters.

Grohl referred to Hawkins as his “brother from another mother, my dearest buddy, a man for whom I would take a bullet” in his 2021 book “The Storyteller.”

‘Our kinship was immediate upon first meeting, and we got closer with every day, every song, and every note we ever played together,’ Grohl wrote. ‘We were made for each other, and I am thankful that we were able to meet in this lifetime.’

When Hawkins joined the band in 1997, Foo Fighters had made the transition from alternative rock to mainstream success, consistently selling out arenas and stadiums.

Foo Fighters' charismatic drummer, Taylor Hawkins, has died at the age of 50. Pictured: Taylor on stage in October 2021

Taylor Hawkins, the flamboyant drummer for Foo Fighters, died at 50. In October 2021, Taylor was pictured on stage.

He had the seemingly onerous chore of playing drums behind Foos singer-guitarist Dave Grohl, one of the best drummers in rock history. He was a creative and rock-solid drummer.

Hawkins did an excellent job in that capacity, adding his hard-hitting, time-juggling technique to the band’s straight-ahead rock sound without imitating Grohl.

He was also a strong singer who frequently took the mic during band performances and on B-sides, typically on cover versions (such as a 2008 collaboration with Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones, when Grohl went behind the drum kit and Hawkins took the mic).

Taylor released three albums with his band Taylor Hawkins and the Coattail Riders, one with his side project The Birds of Satan, and the nine albums he released with Foo Fighters.

Hawkins had previously spoken freely about his drug usage, including an overdose in 2001 that left him in a coma for two weeks.

In a Kerrang! Interview from 2021, Hawkins detailed how he was “moving down a road that was going to lead to much worse paths” when he divulged the horrifying information.

‘I was partying in London one night, and I made a mistake that ruined everything,’ he told the outlet.

‘I bought into the nonsense that you’ll die young if you live hard and fast.

‘I’m not here to preach about avoiding doing drugs because I used to do them all the time, but I got out of control for a bit and it almost killed me.’

‘I was on my way down a route that would lead to much worse pathways.’ Everyone has their route, and I went too far. Whether someone is sober, likes a glass of wine with dinner, wants a bottle of Jägermeister before going on stage, or likes to smoke doobies all day, everyone has their path, and I went too far.

‘It’s a good thing it got hit on the head at that time.’ I wouldn’t take anything away from what I’ve done or experienced since it’s all part of the adventure. I’m attempting to be as open as possible.’

‘I was partying a lot,’ Hawkins said of the overdose in a separate interview with Beats 1 in 2018. I wasn’t an addict in the traditional sense, but I was a party animal. There was a year when the drinking became a touch too much.

‘Thank God this guy gave me the wrong line with the wrong thing one night, and I woke up thinking, ‘What the f**k happened?’ That was a watershed moment for me.’

Hawkins now goes mountain biking to clear his thoughts, and although not being an AA member, he claims to have devised a system that ‘works for [him].’

‘You’d come to see me play in dive bars and say, ‘Kid, you’re a star,” she says. And I thought you were insane, but you instilled such hope and resolve in me,’ Barker wrote.

Oliver Taylor Hawkins was born in Fort Worth, Texas. He began his career as a touring drummer for artists such as Alanis Morissette and Sass Jordan before joining the Foo Fighters in 1997.

His career grew more robust, and he was crowned Best Rock Drummer by the magazine Rhythm in 2005.

After singer Dave Grohl and drummer William Goldsmith had a falling out, Taylor joined the band. Goldsmith then walked away from the group.

Grohl had previously been Nirvana’s drummer. The band re-recorded an album they had made with Goldsmith, with Grohl performing the drum parts alone, before reaching out to a friend for recommendations for a new drummer, who offered Taylor.

Taylor joined the band against Grohl’s expectations that he would not want to leave Morissette’s touring band. Taylor stated that he wanted to be a drummer in a rock band.

Taylor also sang, played guitar, and played piano for the band on several albums.
