Foo Fighters have shared a tribute to Taylor Hawkins on what would've been the late drummer's 51st birthday.

In a tweet Friday, Dave Grohl and company posted a photo of Hawkins alongside the caption, "Miss you so much."

Hawkins was born February 17, 1972 — the same day and year as Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong. He passed away unexpectedly on March 25, 2022, just over a month after his 50th birthday.

Foo Fighters honored Hawkins with two giant tribute concerts last September. The group is set to return to the road this year for a number of festival headlining performances, including at Bonnaroo and Boston Calling. A new drummer has yet to be announced.
