Red Hot Chili Peppers paid tribute to Taylor Hawkins, drummer for the Foo Fighters, who died just over a month ago. At the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, it was the Foo Fighters who were supposed to be the headliners of the musical event, writes The Hollywood Reporter.

Due to Hawkins' death, the band canceled all upcoming dates for their tour and performance in New Orleans. RHCP became the headliner instead. Chad Smith's bass drum had "Taylor" written on it and a hawk, the same tattoo on Taylor's arm.

"We love the Foo Fighters, and we love our brother Taylor Hawkins. This means a lot to us to be able to play for them," Chad said.
