Sometimes, a band that’s led by a drummer and already has another drummer just needs to add a third drummer to the mix. Last night, Foo Fighters played a show at Citi Field in Queens, despite Dave Grohl still being laid up with a broken leg. During their set, they packed in a ton of covers: Queen and David Bowie’s “Under Pressure,” Tom Petty’s “Breakdown,” the Police’s “Next To Me.” And as an encore, they staged a meeting of the ’90s alt-rock all-stars when Grohl called the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Chad Smith “the best fucking drummer in rock and roll,” high praise from the main who may be the best fucking drummer in rock and roll. With Smith, they played a jammed-out 10-minute cover of the Faces’ classic “Stay With Me.” Watch a fan-made video below.
Say what you will about the Foo Fighters, but they make playing stadiums look like fun rather than work.
