Dave Grohl’s daughter performs after Taylor Hawkins’ death


Dave Grohl’s 15-year-old daughter Violet Grohl performed at a pre-Grammys event in Las Vegas over the weekend – days after the Foo Fighters canceled their Grammys concert amid death tragedy of Taylor Hawkins.

Violet – who previously performed with the surviving members of Nirvana in 2020 – proved she’s still following in her father’s footsteps by singing a cover of Joni Mitchell’s “Help Me” at the MusiCares Person of the Year gala.

Earlier in the evening, Violet was joined by her mother, Jordyn Blum, and her 12-year-old sister, Harper Grohl, on the red carpet.

The trio posed for photos in all-black ensembles as Dave, 53, mourned the loss of his bandmate back home.

As previously reported, Hawkins died on March 25 in Bogota, Colombia.

The longtime Foo Fighters drummer was 50.

Days later, the band canceled their remaining tour dates amid heartbreaking news.

“We are sorry and share the disappointment that we will not see each other as planned,” the Foo Fighters wrote in a statement last week.

“Instead, let’s take this time to grieve, to heal, to bring our loved ones together, and to appreciate all the music and memories we’ve made together.”

A rep for the band also confirmed to the Post earlier this week that they were “not playing the Grammys” on Sunday as originally planned.

Hawkins was found unresponsive in his hotel room before the Foo Fighters show in Colombia last month.

He reportedly complained of chest pains before heading to his hotel room alone, where he apparently suffered from an enlarged heart muscle.

Dave spoke with The Post last month about the importance of his relationship with his bandmates.

“There’s something about walking on stage with your guys. There is a security in that,” he said at the time.

“There’s something about being a band, that it’s not just me against the world – it’s us against the world. I don’t know what it’s like to be a solo artist, but I know what it’s like to be in an af-king band. And I have to say it feels good.
