Taylor Hawkins’ Son Played with the Foo Fighters at Saturday’s Tribute Show
There was a HUGE tribute show Saturday night in London for Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins, featuring tons of guest musicians.
The most important of them all was, obviously, Taylor’s son Shane . . . who sat in his dad’s seat for “My Hero“.
Another emotional highlight was Dave Grohl ending the show with a solo version of “Everlong”.
Other performers included Liam Gallagher, Joe Walsh and the reunited James Gang, Nile Rodgers, Josh Homme, Kesha, AC/DC’s Brian Johnson, Lars Ulrich, Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor. . .

Wolfgang Van Halen played two Van Halen songs: “On Fire” and “Hot for Teacher”, with Justin Hawkins on vocals.

Paul McCartney was there too, and he performed the Beatles “Oh Darling” with Chrissie Hynde . . . the first time he’d ever done it as a duet.
