Last week we showed you a clip of the Flaming Lips rehearsing for the “VH1 Rock Honors” concert at L.A.’s Pauley Pavilio, where they’d be joined by Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters, Incubus, and Tenacious D in paying homage to Who. The show has since happened. Hopefully practice made perfect. No telling as of yet, but for now VH1′s upped a clip of the Foo Fighters and Supergrass’ Gaz Coombes rocking out on “Bargain.” It’s a preview of the show that airs tomorrow. Grohl is really into it. Coombes is probably just relieved to to drop that Diamond Hoo Ha Men thing for a few minutes. Also, maybe my eyes are playing tricks on me, but I swear Kirk Hammett’s in the crowd.

The telecast premieres tomorrow. I bet you Jack Black does something “silly.” You can read more about it at the official site.

    early word is that Pearl Jam stole the show and everyone else was just okay, including The Who themselves, who had sound problems, plus Pete tore his fingernail at the beginning of the show, which put him in a bad mood.

  2. Cock rock…..fuck yeah bro!

  3. Ugh. Wish Dave hadn’t shredded his throat. He would have killed the vox on this song. This Gaz dude stinks. The Foos are great on this though.

    ahh supergrass
    time to dig around in my closet for “in it for the money”
    hells yeah

  5. DrJimmy, considering Pearl Jam is probably the closest thing to The Who that’s an active band, that’s not surprising. Based on The Flaming Lips rehearsal footage though I’ll wait until actually seeing the show to decide who steals what.

    VH1 should retitle the segment, The Who: most overrated band in history. If I was Paul Weller back in the 80s I would have cried myself to sleep being lumped-in with these fucktards.

    Gotta hand it to the old farts at VH-1 for devising such an insidious concept: Blackmail all the bands who like the Who into playing a “tribute” to them for the channel (“Hey, PJ are playing it! Eddie would never say ‘no’ to The Who! It’s not VH-1 you’d be turning down, it’s THE WHO, man!!”).

    Keep scraping that barrel, dudes!

  8. A Who tribute without Robert Pollard being involved? Getthefuckouttahere!
