Watch Foo Fighters Pay Tribute to Queen, the Rolling Stones, and the Knack for All-Covers Gig
Dave Grohl joins Taylor Hawkins' Chevy Metal side project
Over the last few months, we’ve seen Dave Grohl share the stage with the Rolling Stones, induct Rush into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame while wearing a white kimono and wig, and cover Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Fortunate Son” with John Fogerty and Rick Springfield. The SPIN cover star indulged his fanboy tendencies even further this past weekend by playing an hour-long, all-covers set alongside Chevy Metal, the side project/cover band of Foo Fighters’ Taylor Hawkins and Chris Shiflett. As the Daily Pilot points out, the alias-using Foos performed at the Costa Mesa Fairgrounds on Saturday (June 29) to celebrate the city’s 60th anniversary. The show included live renditions of Van Halen’s “Panama,” the Knack’s “My Sharona,” Queen and David Bowie’s “Under Pressure,” and the Rolling Stones’ “Miss You.” A good portion of the gig was captured on film by fans who have kindly shared the footage online. Watch “Under Pressure” above, “Miss You,” and shaky footage of the concert’s first 30 minutes below.
