If you’ve browsed around Goliath for any length of time, you’ve probably run into at least one article about the pure awesomeness of Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters. There’s this example. And this one. And, oh look, at least one more.
Suffice to say, we think that Grohl’s ‘down-to-earth-but-still-a-rock-god’ persona is pretty damn entertaining. And it came as no surprise that he came up with yet another reason for us to bow down before him and chant “we’re not worthy” at the Milton Keynes National Bowl on Saturday. He had a few other members of Rock Royalty join the Foos on stage — Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones and Queen drummer Roger Taylor.
Before the group performed an excellent cover of Queen’s “Under Pressure”, Grohl had this to say about the newly formed lineup:
“Now, look. I don’t know if y’all have ever seen a supergroup. This is a ‘superdupergroup.’ I don’t even know what to say because this kind of sh*t doesn’t happen every day. Let me just tell you that the Foo Fighters, right now, are living out our rock n’ roll fantasy with you tonight.”
In a nice switch up, Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins took over on vocals for half of the cover, which were originally performed by Freddie Mercury and David Bowie. Grohl is still confined to his “Rock Throne” after falling and breaking his leg at a concert in Sweden earlier this year.
