Hey. I was at the Foo Fighters gig last night in Hyde Park and was so excited when Roger and Brian made a special appearance of TYMD with Taylor Hawkins on vocals, which was a fantastic performance, especially as I saw Roger and Brian in Hyde Park last year!
Was anyone else there? It was brilliant!


Down in the city just hoople and me.....

I wasnt there, nope, but if this is true, then AWWW and BIG hug to Roger:

"The drummer surprised the crowd when he came onstage and chanted the late Queen singer's famous 'A-ho' intro before he announced: "I'm gonna dedicate this song to Freddie Mercury. This one is for you my friend. I know you're up there. Unfortunately I gotta sing it." (article in NME)

That actully happened? I want bootlegs!!!! :)

Yep! I was there, great show which went to another level when Roger and Brian appeared on stage. Thought Taylor H did a good job on the vocals and got a pretty good reaction to his
Dah-O's (not quite Freddie but not bad ). The Foo and Motorhead fans seemed to get into WWRY doing all the clapping etc and TYMD was great with Brian and Dave on the catwalk.

I was at the Eagles concert in Twickenham at the time and I was pretty sure I heard the roar as Brian and Roger kicked off just over the water!

Well maybe it was just me thinking about them!

Still the Eagles were good, and Joe Walsh stole the show, but I kept thinking about whether Bri and Rog had been on yet!

No, it was definately Taylor H.

Dave and Brian were too busy on the catwalk playing guitar.

after seeing the amazing foo's show and them playing Shake your blood with Lemy and then getting BM and RT on stage for the encore just thinking wouldn’t it be good for Foo's, BM & RT to record their version of tie your mother down then maybe BM will get his wish and tie your mother down doing well in the charts
