Nancy Wilson Shares Taylor Hawkins Tribute, ‘Amigo Amiga’

Nancy Wilson has shared a new song dedicated to the late Taylor Hawkins called “Amigo Amiga”.

The track arrives just one day before Hawkins Tribute Concert is scheduled to take place in Los Angeles. That Heart singer and guitarist will perform at the event.

Wilson reportedly began writing the song the night of Hawkins’ death in March. “I heard myself in tears saying ‘too soon, too soon,’ which became the chorus of the song,” Wilson said Follow. “I spent quite a few sleepless nights trying to articulate it all. He was a wonderful friend and we always had funny nicknames for each other like ‘Amigo’ and ‘Amiga’ and ‘Luv’ and ‘Dahling’.”

Hawkins appeared as a special guest on Wilson’s 2021 debut solo album, You and me. Hawkins played drums on a track titled “Party in the Angel Ballroom,” which was co-written by Hawkins, Wilson and Guns ‘n’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan. “I was lucky enough to work with him at his amazing studio and he was definitely just eccentric in the best and most hysterical way,” Wilson tweeted at the time of Hawkins’ death.

“It’s such a painful loss, but it also feels like Taylor has galvanized and revitalized rock ‘n’ roll with so many of his musician friends and fans coming together,” Wilson told Consequence. “It’s a new renaissance, Taylor, and Foo family has gifted us all.”
