The Foo Fighters just keep on delivering the good and this time, they did it through the means of Puddle Of Mudd.
Yes, you read that right. As reported by Consequence Of Sound, With a sensational performance by none other than the Foo Fighters, they closed out their recent show in the style of a few different bands, where, in a heartfelt gesture to introduce Freese to the devoted Foo Fighters fanbase, Dave Grohl dedicated a portion of their set to covering songs from Freese’s previous bands, resulting in a truly unforgettable experience.
Among the exceptional covers performed, a standout moment occurred when the Foo Fighters treated the audience to a brief yet awe-inspiring rendition of Nine Inch Nails’ classic track, “March of the Pigs.” Seamlessly woven into a medley, the performance also included Devo’s iconic hit “Whip It” and of course, Puddle of Mudd’s beloved song “Blurry.”
The crowd was electrified by this musical tribute, and it served as a testament to the musical versatility and camaraderie among these exceptional musicians.
Prior to joining forces with the Foo Fighters, Josh Freese drummed for a ton of bands ranging from Nine Inch Nails, to Puddle of Mudd’s critically acclaimed album “Come Clean” in 2001. In addition to these achievements, he has been Devo’s esteemed live drummer since 1996, further showcasing his exceptional talent and versatility behind the drum kit.
The inclusion of these covers not only showcased the immense respect and admiration that Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters hold for Josh Freese but also allowed the audience to glimpse the rich musical history and connections shared among these renowned artists.
It looks like this new era of the Foo is off to a great start and surely, it will keep moving forward in due time. Let’s see how all of this plays out in the gigs of the future.
