Foo Fighters Cover a Rush Song With Yes’ Jon Davison Because Yes Is ‘Too F**king Hard’
They played 'Tom Sawyer' instead
Jon Davison has been the lead singer of Yes since 2012 and friends with Foo Fighters’ drummer Taylor Hawkins since childhood. So when the Foos rolled into his Anaheim hometown, Davidson was naturally invited onto the stage to help the band play a cover. But not of a Yes song — according to Dave Grohl, “they’re too f–cking hard.” It’s a compliment, we think, but in any case, Davidson and the Foo Fighters covered Rush’s “Tom Sawyer” instead, and did a bang-up job.
