Saturday night, something amazing happened when Dave Grohl joined fellow Foo Fighters, Taylor Hawkins and Chris Shiflett in their covers band, Chevy Metal.
The band, including Grohl went onto perform one of the most iconic songs in the music world which came courtesy of Queen and Mr. David Bowie, “Under Pressure.”
The performance took place at Costa Mesa, California’s 60th anniversary celebration this past Saturday. While the most memorable cover of the evening was that of “Under Pressure,” the band now including part of the Foo Fighters also covered songs from the likes of The Rolling Stones’ “Miss You,” The Knack’s “My Sharona” and The Vapors’ “Turning Japanese” according to the local newspaper.
“I don’t get to play with Chevy Metal all the time,” Grohl told the crowd about performing with the covers’ group. “It’s the one band in the world I wish I could be in, but the fucking drummer’s the boss. What can I do? Every once in a while I get a phone call [telling me] ‘OK you’re allowed to play one show’. And they let me come play with my favorite fucking band in the world, Chevy Metal.”
Just last week, Hawkins revealed that the Foo Fighter will soon be heading into the recording studio to record the follow-up to 2011’s Wasting Light.
