Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins + More Make Surprise Appearance at NYC Show
After they rocked the ‘Late Show With David Letterman’ with their cover of Black Sabbath’s ‘War Pigs,’ Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins apparently felt the need to continue melting faces.
So what did they do? They showed up at New York City’s McKittrick Hotel to help Danny Clinch celebrate his new photography book, ‘Danny Clinch: Still Moving.’ The celebration found Grohl and Hawkins rocking out with Clinch’s Tangiers Blues Band and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band for a night many concertgoers won’t ever forget.
Case in point: In the video above, you can see the duo covering Bob Dylan’s ‘From a Buick 6’ -- Grohl stepped to the side as Jesse Malin handled lead vocalist responsibilities.
Throughout the night, other rock stars would show up, including Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell, the E Street Band’s Roy Bittan and even Zac Brown (who performed with the Foos earlier on ‘Letterman’).
Watch Farrell absolutely own the Rolling Stones’ ‘Sympathy for the Devil’:
As several outlets have reported, both Courtney Love and Michael Stipe were also in the crowd; unfortunately neither opted to help with the performances.
Oh, and if the Dylan cover wasn’t enough to convince you of just how cool Grohl and Hawkins are, check out their rendition of the Stones’ ‘Miss You’ below:
And how about some extra credit? Here’s a point-of-view shot from guitarist extraordinaire Luther Dickinson (North Mississippi Allstars), watching Hawkins rocking out:
