Dave Grohl’s broken foot has done quite the opposite of slowing the Foo Fighters‘ tour down; it has in fact inspired new levels of music badassery and collaborations while the group continues its worldwide journey. Just last night, on the first of Foo’s two-night takeover of Inglewood, CA, the Fighters were joined on stage by living legend Stevie Nicks and Californian wünkerkinds HAIM.
While Grohl was jamming out on his rock throne (the method by which he’s been giving his foot time to heal) Nicks and HAIM joined in on two songs: “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around”, wherein Grohl took over Tom Petty’s original part and HAIM sang chorus; and a rousing rendition of “Gold Dust Woman”. If I’m being perfectly honest, I could have done with 4-10 more Stevie/Fleetwood covers, especially ones with stronger input from HAIM, but I guess that’s not technically what concert-goers paid to see.
This is not the first time that HAIM have been on stage with Stevie, nor is it their first musical flirtation for the group with the music of Fleetwood Mac. In 2012, the sisters Haim (Este, Danielle, and Alana) contributed a track to the multi-artist Fleetwood Mac tribute album, Just Tell Me That You Want Me. HAIM were enlisted to tackle “Hold Me” for the compilation, and at the rate they’re going, they’ll have the entire Fleetwood discography covered by the time the Foo Fighters are ready to start their next tour.
Previously, Stevie has lent her witchy ways to FX’s American Horror Story: Coven, and for last night’s show she gave a starstruck Este, Danielle, and Alana each their own magic-lady-moon-scarves:
Does this collaboration rock your face off, or does this rock your face OFF!? Chime in below!
