This Saturday (September 5th) would have been the 69th birthday of Freddy Mercury, the legendary vocalist of Queen. While the Foo Fighters returned to the UK to cover their missed shows due to Dave Grohl’s broken leg, they brought out some very special guests to commemorate the late singers birthday.
“Now look. I don’t know if y’all have ever seen a supergroup. This is a ‘super-duper-group,'” Grohl said as he invited out Queen’s Roger Taylor and Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones on stage.
Taylor Hawkins, giving up his drum kit to Roger Taylor, took a mic and shared the classic Queen and David Bowie tune “Under Pressure” with Grohl.
“I don’t even know what to say because this kind of shit 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,” Grohl told the audience.
