Roger Waters Joins Foo Fighters On Fallon

By Tom Breihan / September 28, 2011

Last night, the week-long tribute to Pink Floyd continued on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, as Floyd co-founder Roger Waters stopped by and cranked out a one-time-only performance with the Foo Fighters as his backing band. Together, they took on “In The Flesh,” the rumbler from The Wall. The Foos totally and completely played backing-band duty; Dave Grohl didn’t even sing backup.

Waters also sat for an interview with a very enthusiastic Fallon. During that segment, he reminisced about his band’s early days and said nice things about the Shins’ cover of “Breathe” on the previous night’s show. Watch both the performance and the interview below.

Tonight, MGMT will be on the show to cover the Syd Barrett-era nugget “Lucifer Sam.”
