Here’s a chance to watch Foo Fighters follow up their recent on-stage collaboration with Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones, by playing a Zeppelin classic on stage last Friday (25) in Phoenix. The band were joined by singer-songwriter Jewel for a performance of ‘Whole Lotta Love.’
Rolling Stone reports that Dave Grohl told the audience in Phoenix that the band’s first thought was to play “some nice thing that we thought would sound good,” but that his friend Jewel was against that idea. “She says, ‘I wanna do this,'” and she started to sing the ‘Whole Lotta Love’ riff. With no rehearsal time, Jewel wrote out the lyrics on her hand.
Earlier in the month, Jones — who was, of course, bandmates with Grohl in Them Crooked Vultures — and Roger Taylor joined Foo Fighters at their Milton Keynes Bowl show in the UK. There they unleashed their rendition of Queen’s ‘Under Pressure’ in what Grohl described as a “superdupergroup.” At their Los Angeles concert, Stevie Nicks and Haim were their on-stage guests.
Foo Fighters’ North American tour continues until October 18, when it winds up in Castaic, California. They then begin a run of European dates, starting in Amsterdam on November 5. That itinerary ends at the Palau Sant Jordi in Barcelona on November 19.
