Mötley Crüe rocker Tommy Lee has revealed he was one of the last people that ever spoke to Taylor Hawkins before his tragic death on Friday, March 25.

The Foo Fighters musician was found dead in his hotel room in Bogota, Colombia, after telling hotel staff he had been suffering from mysterious chest pains.

"You KNOW how I feel about you and how much I love you," he went on, "and we both know there's no need to type it all out on social media for others to read."

Lee concluded the tribute, "I love you Taylor. Rest in Beats. Tommy."

This comes as authorities speculate that Hawkins' death was drug related — the rocker had been open for years about his struggles with addiction — but have since cautioned the public that further details surrounding his passing have not yet been confirmed by medical examiners.

“According to those close to him, the death could be related to the consumption of drugs,” the Metropolitan Police of Bogota said in a statement. “The cause of death has yet to be established.”
