Foo Fighters Form ‘Superduper Group’ With Members Of Queen And Led Zeppelin For Freddie Mercury Tribute
The iconic Freddie Mercury would have been 69-years-old on Saturday, but sadly the legendary Queen frontman died of AIDS on the evening of November 24, 1991. To pay homage to the celebrated rock star, Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters belted out of his classic songs. However they had some very impressive rock royalty to help them with the fantastic tribute.
On Saturday, the Foo Fighters welcomed Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones and Queen drummer Roger Taylor to sing “Under Pressure” at the Milton Keynes National Bowl in the U.K.
Dave Grohl was giddy that he was performing with two of his music icons:
“Now, look. I don’t know if y’all have ever seen a supergroup. This is a ‘superdupergroup.’ I don’t even know what to say because this kind of sh*t doesn’t happen every day. Let me just tell you that the Foo Fighters, right now, are living out our rock n’ roll fantasy with you tonight.”
FF drummer Taylor Hawkins, attempted to do the Freddie Mercury vocals justice as he gave drumming duties to Roger Taylor. Meanwhile, Mercury’s bandmate, John Paul Jones was on keys.
And the rock tour of the summer continues to roll on.
