 Forensic experts are said to have discovered it weighed ‘at least 600 grams’, double the average of 300 to 350 grams, during an examination following his shocking death.

Investigators have concluded the 50-year-old ‘suffered cardiovascular collapse’ after binging on a cocktail of drugs, respected Colombian news magazine Semana reported. 

The drummer died in a hotel room in the north of Colombia’s capital of Bogota. 

A toxicology report carried out revealed traces of 10 different drugs in his urine, including opioids, THC, tricyclic antidepressants and benzodiazepines, according to the Attorney General’s Office of Colombia, who shared the statement on Saturday via Twitter (translated from Spanish). 

Shocking: Colombia’s Attorney General’s office (AGO) has already confirmed an initial autopsy carried out on Saturday revealed traces of 10 different drugs in Hawkins’ urine, including opioids which can range from heroin to fentanyl and morphine

Well-known Colombian journalist Luis Carlos Velez, the Bogota-based director of radio station FM, claimed that a police officer who entered Hawkins’ room at the Four Seasons Hotel Casa Medina had told prosecutors he saw a ‘cocaine-like’ white powder.

However, the AGO did not mention cocaine in its post-autopsy statement.

On Friday night, Taylor began complaining of chest pains prior to the band’s headline performance at the Estereo Picnic Festival in Bogota.

His condition subsequently deteriorated and efforts to revive him by a private doctor and city emergency responders failed, according to the city’s health secretary.

‘The health professional who attended the emergency indicated that they performed the respective resuscitation maneuvers. However, there was no response and the patient was declared deceased,’ the statement from the city’s health secretary read. 

Prior to his death, the band was touring South America, performing at Lollapalooza Argentina in Buenos Aires on Sunday, March 20 – Taylor’s last performance before his passing. 

On Friday, the Foo Fighters were supposed to perform at the Festival Estereo Picnic in Bogota, but that was canceled just before the announcement of his death.

Both Lil Nas X and Brandi Carlile have an impressive five nominations each, while Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak’s group Silk Sonic received four. 

The Recording Academy has eliminated nominations review committees this year meaning winners will now be determined by a majority vote from Recording Academy voting members.

There are famously a long list of categories – 88 to be exact.

Two new categories have been included this year: Best Global Music Performance (Global Music Field) and Best Música Urbana Album (Latin Music Field).

The Grammys were initially set to take place on Jan. 31 in Los Angeles, but got pushed due to the rapid spread of the Omicron variant of the coronavirus.

‘Given the uncertainty surrounding the Omicron variant, holding the show on January 31 simply contains too many risks,’ CBS and the Recording Academy said.  

Harvey Mason Jr., CEO of the Recording Academy, confirmed later in January that it would be moving to Las Vegas.
