Another Foo Fighters show, another special guest, another cover of a legendary classic-rock tune! This time, we drop in on the Foos' show this past Friday night in Phoenix, Arizona, when they invited Jewel, yes Jewel, on stage.
Here's a weird one. On September 19 in Anaheim, California, Foo Fighters brought Yes singer Jon Davison out on stage (who knew he was Foos drummer Taylor Hawkins' best friend?) to perform Rush's "Tom Sawyer."
When Labor Day came and went earlier this month, it reminded us of the American labor movement and the contributions American workers have made to the strength, prosperity and well-being of the good ol' U.S. of A. However, since we're Guitar World people, we couldn't help but apply those sentiments to music and the American people who made and make it—bands!
This past Saturday night, Foo Fighters performed the first of three U.K. make-up gigs following Dave Grohl's fractured leg. To make up for the belated gig, Grohl and company treated the Milton Keynes, England, fans to a performance of David Bowie's "Under Pressure," featuring Queen's Roger Taylor and Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones.
Over the weekend (July 4, to be exact), Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl returned to the stage for the first time after breaking his leg during a gig in June. Playing a hometown show at Washington, D.C's Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium, Foo Fighters topped the bill at a gig in celebration of their 20th anniversary.
As you might have heard, over the weekend, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl broke his leg onstage at a show in Sweden (see the video below)—and returned to the stage in a cast to finish the show. The singer/guitarist/drummer recently issued a statement on what exactly happened as well as tour date cancellations. You can read it below.
