Taylor Hawkins' passing shocked the entire music world. A man who not only made music that people loved, but who exuded energy and light, suddenly gone. This week we're scratching an Itch we never want to have to, but we're not doing it alone. Our friend Brian Colburn of Playlist Wars joins us to revisit some of our favorite Taylor performances with Foo Fighters, which you can listen to here. Along the way, we'll hear from fellow podcast friends Podioslave, TrawlCast, Prisoners of Rock and Roll, and the Infectious Groove with their tributes to a legend. And to close the show, we've got a very special performance from Blacktop Mojo's recent performance in St. Louis. We're grateful for Taylor, we miss him, and we hope this does him proud.

We'd love to connect with you, hear your feedback, and talk music with you!
