The Foo Fighters Teamed Up With Members of Queen and Led Zeppelin to Play “Under Pressure”

The Foo Fighters are currently touring the U.K., and, in an Avengers-esque assemblage of rock ‘n’ roll talent, Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones and Queen’s Roger Taylor joined the band on Saturday for a rousing rendition of “Under Pressure.” The occasion? The late Freddie Mercury’s 69th birthday.

Mercury’s vocal range, of course, is pretty much impossible to imitate, but Dave Grohl and Foo drummer Taylor Hawkins compensated with a more than serviceable tag-team effort. As for their accompaniment, Grohl had this to say: “I don’t know if y’all have ever seen a supergroup? Well, this is a super-duper-group.” Sounds about right.
