Over the weekend, the Foo Fighters threw their very own music festival and it had a very impressive lineup. The Cal Jam 17 featured top rock acts such as Queens of the Stone Age, Cage The Elephant, Japandroids, The Kills, Babes in Toyland, Wolf Alice, Bully, and Bob Mould. During the Foo Fighters’ appearance, they added two special guests to help them perform The Beatles’ song “Come Together,” guitarist from Aerosmith Joe Perry and singer Liam Gallagher. The festival was held in San Bernardino, California and resurrecting the iconic festival held in 1974 and 1978 that featured all-time greats such as Black Sabbath, Aerosmith, Deep Purple, the Eagles, Santana, Heart, and Foreigner. Some lucky fans in attendance during the Foo Fighters’ set got to meet Liam intimately when he crowdsurfed during the cover song of the beloved classic from The Beatles’ 1969 album “Abbey Road.”
Dave Grohl and the Foo also Rickrolled the Cal Jam crowd by inviting Rick Astley on stage to sing his now internet meme-worthy song “Never Gonna Give You Up.”
Queens Of The Stone Age paid tribute to the festival’s organizers by playing a verse of “Everlong,” arguably the Foo Fighters’ most popular song. While QOTSA performed their song “Feel Good Hit Of The Summer,” the band snuck in a snippet of “Everlong” and had the crowd sing-a-long.
In other Foo Fighters news, the great American band didn’t enjoy appearing on Carpool Karaoke and called it “uncomfortable.”
