Published Aug 27, 2018Yesterday (August 26), Foo Fighters held a surprise pop-up performance in the parking lot of the Hollywood Palladium, and if that somehow wasn't enough, the group upped the ante by bringing out Queen drummer Roger Taylor as a special guest.
Performing a slew of covers, deep cuts and rarities as a pair of fictional groups named Chevy Metal and the Holy Shits, the former outfit enlisted Taylor to man the kit for a cover of Queen's "Under Pressure" at the Cal Jam pop-up event. You can watch the Taylor Hawkins-fronted band work their way through the song below.
Hawkins and Chevy Metal also covered Thin Lizzy's "Jailbreak," the Knack's "My Sharona" and the Rolling Stones' "Miss You."
The Foos themselves then took the stage as the Holy Shits, performing a number of songs that don't usually make the cut when drawing up setlists for stadium shows.
Deep cuts included "Gimmie Stitches" from 1999's There Is Nothing Left to Lose and "Hey, Johnny Park!" and "New Way Home" from the group's The Color and the Shape.
