Dave Grohl’s wife Jordyn and daughters Violet, 15, and Harper, 12, wear black to pre-Grammy event | Daily Mail Online

Dave Grohl’s wife Jordyn and their daughters Violet, 15, and Harper, 12, posed up together at a pre-Grammys event in Las Vegas on Friday.

His band Foo Fighters have canceled their Grammys performance after their drummer Taylor Hawkins died of a cardiovascular collapse following a suspected overdose.

Dave was not on the red carpet for Friday’s MusiCares Person Of The Year event honoring Joni Mitchell, but his wife and two elder daughters made an appearance.

Violet, who has followed father’s footsteps into music, took the stage during the festivities to perform Joni’s 1974 song Help Me.

Jordyn and Dave have been married since 2003 and in addition to Violet and Harper they have a seven-year-old daughter called Ophelia.

Violet, Harper and Jordyn all wore black outfits to the MusiCares event on Friday, presumably signaling that they were in mourning for Taylor.

The star-studded affair was thrown at the MGM Grand Marquee Ballroom ahead of Sunday night’s Grammys, which will be held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. 

Performers booked for the MusiCares fete include Chaka Khan, Sara Bareilles, Mickey Guyton, St. Vincent, Pentatonix, Beck, Brandi Carlile and Billy Porter.

A representative for Foo Fighters told Billboard on Thursday that the band were withdrawing from their scheduled gig at the Grammy Awards.

The announcement came two days after the group announced they were scrapping the remainder of their concert bookings. 

‘It is with great sadness that Foo Fighters confirm the cancellation of all upcoming tour dates in light of the staggering loss of our brother,’ they said in a statement.

Taylor, 50, was found dead in his hotel room on March 25 in Bogota, Colombia, where Foo Fighters were scheduled to play the Festival Estereo Picnic that day.

The Colombian attorney general announced on Twitter on March 26 that 10 different types of substances were discovered in Taylor’s system after his death.

A preliminary toxicology test showed that these substances included opioids, benzodiazepines, THC and tricyclic antidepressants.  

An autopsy found he suffered a ‘cardiovascular collapse’ after a drug binge, with forensic experts saying his heart weighed ‘at least 600 grams,’ double the average.

Two days after Taylor’s death, Dave was seen in floods of tears as he arrived back in Los Angeles and was consoled by loved ones at the airport. 

Dave described Taylor as his ‘brother from another mother, my best friend, a man for whom I would take a bullet’ in his memoirs.

‘Together, we have become an unstoppable duo, onstage and off, in pursuit of any and all adventure we can find,’ he wrote. ‘We are absolutely meant to be, and I am grateful that we found each other in this lifetime.’
