Members of Foo Fighters Play an "All Cover" Show at a Local Fair
Foo Fighters are never boring. They can be serious about music but somehow not too serious about themselves.
Once again, Foo Fighters surprised everyone this past weekend by showing up as alter ego band Chevy Metal at the Conjeo Valley Days in Thousand Oaks, CA to play an 18 song set of all covers. Originally started by drummer Taylor Hawkins as a fun side project, Dave Grohl, Chris Shiflet and Rami Jaffe joined others to cover songs from a crazy list of artists including Bryan Adams, Van Hallen, Steve Miller, Billy Joel.
Some great moments included Dave admittingly forgetting the lyrics to “Summer of 69” and Taylor having to call Dave in during “Under Pressure.” There was even a moment when Dave offers to buy everyone a fried Twinkie.
