Miley Cyrus is sharing a special remembrance of the late Taylor Hawkins, who died at age 50 earlier this year.

Cyrus took to Twitter to share a brief voicemail she was left by the Foo Fighters drummer, who was also her neighbour.

“Miley, it’s Taylor. Heard you’re moving — waah!” Hawkins says in the recording, mock crying over the prospect of losing Cyrus as a neighbour.

“I’m listening to ‘Photograph’ by Def Leppard,” Hawkins adds. “You could kill that one.”


“A personal request from the legend himself. #TaylorHawkins my friend, my idol…. My neighbor,” she wrote in the caption. “Growing up on a farm I never could see the light of another house nearby, but living by Taylor for the years that I did out in LA were some of the most fun times of my life.”

In followup tweets, she shared her thoughts about honouring Hawkins at the tribute show, and shared a video of her performance, in which she traded verses with Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott.

“I miss Taylor so much like everybody else,” Cyrus wrote. “It was such an honor to celebrate him last night and perform w @DefLeppard So lucky to have known him not just as a superstar but to have spent time watching him just be a dad and a husband!”

In addition to Cyrus and Def Leppard, other performers at the L.A. tribute show included Foo Fighters, Stewart Copeland, Josh Homme, Joan Jett, Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson of Rush, Queen guitarist Brian May, Alanis Morissette, Mark Ronson, Gene Simmons, Nikki Sixx, Chad Smith, Wolfgang Van Halen and more.
