Foo Fighters honor “legend” Stephen Hawking; other rock musicians react

Chris Williamson/Getty ImagesFoo Fighters have posted a tribute to Nobel Prize-winning physicist Stephen Hawking, who died Wednesday morning at age 76.

The Foos shared one of Hawking’s famous quotes — “Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet” — and added “RIP Stephen Hawking you f***ing legend.”

Here are a few other reactions from the rock community:

Nikki Sixx: “Sad day for science and dreamers alike…RIP Mr Hawking Thank You!!!”

Courtney Love: “‘The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge’ RIP Stephen Hawking”

Nickelback: “Sad to hear of Stephen Hawking’s passing but extremely grateful for his contributions. He was a first-rate example of what a curious mind can achieve and how it can also inspire. Equally important as his theories. Thank you for everything”
