Brad Wilk of Rage Against The Machine was a special guest of Foo Fighters in Sydney on Thursday night. Wilk performed Van Halen’s ‘Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout’ Love’ with Foo Fighters at the Sydney show.
“One thing that we love more than anything else is having our friends come up and jam with us,” Dave Grohl said. “One of our favourite people in the world is here tonight and we want him to come up and play this song with us. Ladies and gentlemen, would you please welcome one of our favourite rock drummers in the world from Rage Against The Machine, Brad Wilk”.
Wilk is currently in Australia touring as drummer for Smashing Pumpkins.
Wilk’s Foo Fighters collaboration was placed in the band’s classic rock set where they also play Queen + David Bowie’s ‘Under Pressure’, Kiss ‘Detroit Rock City’ and AC/DC ‘Let There Be Rock’.
Foo Fighters have also been performing The Faces ‘Stay With Me’ and ‘Tom Sawyer’ by Rush on previous shows on this tour.
